Personalized care planning, a formal process in which clinicians and patients collaborate in the creation of longitudinal treatment plans, is a frequently mentioned tool to improve the quality and patient-centeredness of primary care for medically complex, high-needs individuals.1 A systematic review of personalized care planning interventions demonstrated small improvements in quality of care for persons with diabetes, hypertension, and asthma; improvements in self-efficacy and self-care; and some improvements in psychological and general health indicators; moreover, interventions were most effective when they were integrated into routine care.2
