Consumer-Directed Services or CDS gives patients the independence to supervise the services they would want to receive. They also get to decide who, when, and where they prefer to get assisted by the care professionals. In addition to the advantage of getting the independence to manage their own care services, it also allows them to avail different types of health services, may it be medical or non-medical.
