Patients are the experts in what they want to achieve from their health care. Clinicians are the experts in how to get them there.

Patient Priorities Care follows two core steps:
Patient Priorities Care grew from the observations of health professionals who saw that traditional, disease-based health care wasn’t giving older adults with multiple chronic conditions the outcomes they truly wanted. Dr. Mary Tinetti, a geriatrician and researcher with decades of experience, was one of those health professionals.
