What is patient-centered health care and what are the unifying threads and common understandings of the topic. How do healthcare organizations consider enacting patient-centered health care? How does the emerging focus on "medical homes" for patients fit into this concept? What are the critical and strategic imperatives for a basic business philosophy of putting patients first? What conflicts exist within the health care system, and how can all the “players” unify? What does “Putting Patients First” mean? When does the “rubber hit the road”?
