Models of Care Used to Organize Systems of Healthcare
There are two predominant models of care that are used to organize systems of healthcare. The first model, designed by Dawson, is a highly structured model that focuses on a regionalized approach. This model is used by the British National Health Service. The second model encourages a more free-flowing movement of patients through the healthcare system, and this model is used by the healthcare system in the United States.
