Abstract

Healthcare entities across the United States establish responsibilities that competent patients are expected to assume throughout the duration of the physician-patient relationship. While these might vary between organizations, the author suggests that healthcare institutions, nationwide, widely agree on four patient responsibility categories, each of which encompass six specific responsibilities. This essay examines these six responsibilities and the extent to which patients at UPMC are believed to assume them throughout the duration of the physician-patient relationship. The conclusion will establish that the majority of competent patients at UPMC are not fully knowledgeable and do not assume their expected responsibilities. This study suggests that healthcare costs could be reduced and our nation’s public health could be improved if more patients were active participants in their healthcare.
