Medical doctors Teun Teunis and Michiel Hageman founded PATIENT+. They examined the effect of Shared Decision making at Harvard Medical School. As their results were tremendously positive, they decided they wanted to pursue putting Shared Decision Making into practice. Teun and Michiel translated words into deeds and founded PATIENT+ in 2013.
Our team now consist of 13 healthcare professionals. From our research and experience we are convinced that Shared Decision Making will improve the healthcare system.Our aim is to make Shared Decision Marking the new standard of care. By developing and implementing decision aids, we will make Shared Decision Making widely available. Moreover, our decision aids will make Shared Decision Making easier and fun.
PATIENT+ is the main provider of decision aids in the Netherlands. We have developed over 60 Dutch and over 25 English decision aids to put Shared Decision Making into practice. We continuously develop new decision aids, with over 20 decision aids being developed now. We also continue to work on existing decision aids: we constantly update decision aids based on current medical and scientific literature.
