Abstract

Advances in communication science and developments in health information technology coupled with recent health reform initiatives have created unique opportunities for progressing toward a patient-centered healthcare system in the US. We propose a conceptual framework to describe ways in which patient-centered communication may serve as a critical link in translating health information technology functionality into delivery of patient-centered care. In this context, health information technology may provide the infrastructure for patient-centered communication to enable delivery of patient-centered care. Key aspects of patient-centered communication and health information technology are reviewed and patient-centered care is described as emerging through health information technologyenabled patient-centered communication.
