Shared decision making (SDM) done well leads to patients who make informed decisions that are guided by a consideration of preferences, the ultimate in patient-centered care. These outcomes clearly have value at the level of individual care plans. This chapter takes the next step and argues that the potential to add even further value to the SDM process has largely been overlooked. The case is made for aggregating the results of many patients who have made informed preference-based decisions as the basis for estimating the capacity requirements of service delivery systems. Revealed preferences, it is argued, could guide population level decisions about which services should be commissioned (or decommissioned) in the near term, and which service capacities should be increased or decreased over the longer term.
