To the Editor Drs Tang and Smith1 reported on the democratization of health care as a vital direction to facilitate framing a health policy agenda.2 In the full report from the National Academy of Medicine,3 they emphasized transformations of the US health care delivery system (from a transactional fee-for-service basis to a model that rewards improving health and well-being, and from patient-centered care to person-centered care [with patient empowerment and shared decision making]) and call for technology to “provide just-in-time information tailored to the individual to inform those daily decisions that influence health behaviors.”
