Enhanced Support For Shared Decision Making Reduced Costs Of Care For Patients With Preference-Sensitive Conditions

Author: Health Affairs

Resource type :

This year-long randomised investigation found patients receiving enhanced support to make a treatment decision had lower overall medical costs, fewer hospital admissions and fewer preference-sensitive surgeries.

It also suggested that a ‘remote’ model of support – combining telephonic coaching with decision aids, for example – may constitute a relatively low-cost and effective intervention.
