Summit: Voice of the Patient

Summit Overview

Part II of the Alliance for Health Policy’s 2020 Signature Series focuses on the Voice of the Patient. During this Summit, we will examine the patient’s voice across several levels of health care design, delivery, and measurement. Throughout this three-day event, we will study how the patient voice is collected, how it supports shared-decision making, and how it is leveraged in policy translation efforts to improve patient experience and build healthier futures.

Attendees will hear from patient advocates, industry professionals, and top thought leaders on topics such as:

  • Patient interaction best practices
  • Helping patients navigate the health care system
  • The impact of bias on patient trust in medicine
  • Making data actionable for health care system redesign

We welcome audience members to participate in the discussion online using the hashtag #AHPSummit20 across Twitter and Facebook.
