The publication of this special series on Innovations and Practices that Influence Patient-Centered Health Care Delivery was intended to report on research that focused on innovative practices and interventions that influence what matters most in health care: the patient.
The 15 papers in this special series all focus on practices in patient-centered care, with some directly addressing issues related to two major global events—the COVID-19 pandemic and racial and social inequities. We hope that this collection improves the experience and outcomes of the most important stakeholder of health care: the patient.
