Summit Overview

Join physicians, health care professionals, health system leaders, patient advocates, and patients for a one-day Summit focused on integrating and leveraging the patient’s voice in U.S. health care. This Summit will challenge both clinicians and patients to work collaboratively to co-design and develop programs that benefit the way care is delivered, with an ultimate goal of achieving the “quadruple aim”: improved patient and family experience, better health outcomes, lower per capita costs, and increased joy in practice. In addition, the Summit will share the work of the National Quality Partners Shared Decision Making Action Team with key audiences, including physicians and specialty societies.

Topics addressed at the Summit will include:

  • Shared decision-making
  • Cultural competency/Equity
  • Patient-centered outcomes
  • CMS/CMI update on Patient & Family Engagement
  • Point of care tools
  • Best practice in developing care plans

Examples will be provided to show how patient/family and health professional partnership can be accomplished.
