Getting There From Here – It Takes a Village
We are all familiar with the concept of placing the patient at the epicenter of the healthcare experience, involving them in decision-making, responding quickly and effectively to patient needs and listening to their wishes rather than our previous top-down approach. Patient centered care is about changing mindsets – it’s about meeting needs, providing emotional support, educating and communicating with one another. It’s a partnership that takes all of us, not one healthcare org operating in a silo, or one software solution walled off from another.
So what’s next? Let’s discuss concrete examples of how we transform patient centered care as community activists. – Linda Stotsy
