Patient- and family-centered care is a model of providing care in which the patient and family are partners with the provider and care team. A resurgence of interest in patient- and family-centered care is due, in part, to increasing consumerism in health care and the linking of reimbursement to the patient experience. Individual radiologists, practices, enterprises, and radiology professional societies have been engaged with patient- and family-centered care in varying degrees for many years. Understanding the roots and evolution of this care model will encourage further application of these principles in radiology.
