Circle of care modelling: An approach to assist in reasoning about healthcare change using a patient-centric system

Journal article

This Canadian paper presents Circle of Care Modelling, an approach designed to assist stakeholders in considering healthcare system changes using a patient-centric approach. The author describes the approach and presents three case studies where Circle of Care Modelling was applied to different real-world healthcare problems. These case studies highlight how this novel approach helped stakeholders reason from a patient-centred viewpoint, about gaps and improvements in care, such as data fragmentation, medication management and supporting a community health centre for patients unattached to primary care. The author describes how this approach facilitates the exploration of inter-organisational and inter-ICT system issues that would impact patient care, while keeping the patient central.
