AbstractPerson-centered care emphasizes a holistic, humanistic approach that puts patients first, at the center of medical care. Person-centeredness is also considered a core element of integrated care. Yet typologies of integrated care mainly describe how patients fit within integrated services, rather than how services fit into the patient's world. Patient-centeredness has been commonly defined through physician's behaviors aimed at delivering patient-centered care. Yet, it is unclear how 'person-centeredness' is realized in integrated care through the patient voice. We aimed to explore patient narratives of person-centeredness in the integrated care context.

Assessing patients' experience of integrated care: a survey of patient views in the North West London Integrated Care PilotMastellos, Nikolaos; Gunn, Laura H.; Harris, Matthew; Majeed, Azeem; Car, Josip; Pappas, Yannis; Imperial College London; Stetson University; University of Bedfordshire (Igitur publishing, 2014-04)Despite the importance of continuity of care and patient engagement, few studies have captured patients' views on integrated care. This study assesses patient experience in the Integrated Care Pilot in North West London with the aim to help clinicians and policymakers understand patients' acceptability of integrated care and design future initiatives.
Stage at diagnosis, survival and diagnostic delays for lung, colorectal, prostate and ovarian cancer: comparison between patients referred urgently from primary care and patients diagnosed through other routesNeal, Richard D.; Ali, Nasreen; Allgar, Victoria L.; Heywood, Phil; Leese, Brenda; Proctor, Gill; Evans, Joyce; University of Leeds (Royal College of General Practitioners, 2007-03-01)Background Very few studies have reported cancer outcomes of patients referred through different routes, despite the prominence of current UK cancer urgent referral guidance. Aim This study aimed to compare outcomes of cancer patients referred through the urgent referral guidance with those who were not, with respect to stage at diagnosis, survival, and delays in diagnosis. Design of study Analysis of hospital records. Setting One hospital trust in England Method The records of 889 patients diagnosed in 2000–2001 with one of four types of cancer were analysed: 409 with lung cancer; 239 with colorectal cancer; 146 with prostate cancer; and 95 with ovarian cancer. Outcome measures were diagnostic stage, survival, referral and secondary care delays. Results For lung cancer, urgent referrals had more advanced TNM (tumor, node, metastasis) stage than patients diagnosed through other routes (P = 0.035) and poorer survival (P = 0.020). There was no difference in stage or survival for the other cancers. For each cancer, a higher proportion of urgent referrals was seen within 2 weeks. Secondary care delays for lung and colorectal cancer were shorter for inter-specialty referrals. Conclusion For patients with lung cancer, the guidance appears to be prioritising those in the more advanced stages of disease. This was not the case for the other three cancers. Referral delays were shorter for patients urgently referred, as is the intention of the guidance. The avoidance of delays in outpatient diagnostics probably accounts for shorter secondary care delays for inter-specialty referrals.
A user interface design for a patient oriented digital patientErsotelos, Nikolaos; Zhao, Xia; Zhao, Youbing; Wei, Hui; Liu, Enjie; Clapworthy, Gordon J.; Dong, Feng; University of Bedfordshire (IEEE, 2013-11)MyHealthAvatar is designed to provide a digital representation of patient health status. It aims to become a `lifetime companion' for individual citizens that will facilitate the collection of, and access to, long term health-status information. This avatar is not only extremely valuable for clinical decision-making, but it will generate data to support clinical investigation, thereby leading to strengthened multidisciplinary research and excellence in supporting innovative medical care across the population. My Health Avatar platform is currently under development. The purpose of this paper is to present the scope, the provided service and the future plans of the platform as well as a detailed description of the visual representation of the MyHealthAvatar platform.
