Data from a health care spending survey of parents of more than 2,800 children with special health care needs showed that shared decision-making in medicine led to lower rates of hospitalization and emergency department visits. In the journal Pediatrics, researchers noted that the total health care cost for those children whose families had a part in making decisions fell from more than $2,000 in the first year of the study to $1,700 in the second year.
