The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) funded PatientsLikeMe research to capture patient perspectives about and develop new ways to measure provider effectiveness in delivering health care. Previous studies on the same topic have relied on clinical and researcher input with little patient involvement. This research included several components: one study applied patient-generated health data to groups developing outcome measures; another developed a patient-generated model of good care; a third compared physician and patient perspectives on accountability. Collectively, these studies help us to understand and define good care from the patient point of view.
