I would like to cite a post on http://e-patients.net which mentions the importance of patient communication in healthcare delivery which has been addressed in previous posts (Patients communicate , The economic value of Patient Centered IT, Online Communities vs. Treatments) on Patient Centered IT.dreamstime_xs_18404768

Communication for patients is an essential and non-disputable act in healthcare delivery. I totally subscribe to this statement:

There is no industry where communication is not an essential component to keep things running smoothly and efficiently. In healthcare, however, communication can save lives and that is beyond essential

It is absolutely necessary to improve communication skills of providers and patients in order to save lives. This is not a new claim and has always been an issue. The newer development with enhanced  possibilities of  information system together with the need for Patient Centered Applications just put an additional focus on this.
