The October LTPAC Roundtable titled "Care Coordination and Person-Centric Longitudinal Care" explored efforts by academia and private industry to progress towards a person-centric longitudinal care plan. At the end of the session, attendees were asked to share their opinions on the following question. Responses could range from 1 (very poor) to 5 (very good).
How would you rate the impact that the following stakeholders have in shaping the "culture of transparency" in a medical encounter?
- healthcare/clinic administrators
The responses in brief:
Respondents were fairly neutral regarding each stakeholder's impact on the relationship. That said, respondents tended to consider clinicians (average score = 3.42) as having the most positive impact of the three groups considered.

Looking a little closer at the responses offered, respondents tended to be more certain regarding the impacts that patients have on the relationship (only 8.3% selected the "Nuetral" response option) than the other two groups.

These findings suggest the transparency of a medical encounter is generally shaped by the patient/clinician relationship and is the area where we need to focus on when considering the development and adoption of the longitudinal patient-centric care plan.
