The design of novel healthcare delivery models better suited to address the burden of chronic diseases requires a thorough understanding of the foundational concepts of patient and healthcare provider collaboration. Reviewing the literature, we propose a taxonomy towards collaborative care: a generic term characterising healthcare delivery models that focus on the importance of patient-provider interactions, support safe patient participation in their own care, and redefine the balance of decision-power and accountability between patient and provider in health and care management.
