As the health system moves toward a devolved model of care, the need to focus on consumer’s needs is increasingly important at both a policy and practice level. The growing body of literature on health value co-creation and its benefits in the health sector shows that value can be co-created for the individual consumer, clinical practices, health care organisations, and governments.
