What is the Patient's Bill of Rights?

The Patient's Bill of Rights was created to achieve 3 important goals.

1. Help patients feel more confident in the U.S. health care system by:

  • Assuring that the health care system is fair and it works to meet patients' needs
  • Giving patients a way to address any problems they may have
  • Encouraging patients to take an active role in staying or getting healthy

2. Stress the importance of a strong relationship between patients and their health care providers

3. S
tress the key role patients play in staying healthy by laying out rights and responsibilities
    for all patients and health care providers
