GetWellNetwork and Healthcare Industry Leaders to Measure Impact of Patient Engagement on Patient Outcomes and Hospital Performance

WASHINGTON, May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- A group of prominent healthcare leaders, clinicians, researchers and policy makers today announced the launch of the Institute for Interactive Patient Care (IIPC). The Institute has been formed to demonstrate and advocate for the importance of patient engagement as a means for improving quality, service and cost performance outcomes in American healthcare.

The IIPC has two principal functions:

  • To conduct research that will establish the efficacy of patient engagement on advancing hospital quality, safety, service and financial outcomes, as well as patient outcomes; and
  • To utilize these findings to establish and promote patient engagement policy, standards and requirements for healthcare providers.

The IIPC is governed by a 15-member National Advisory Board and will publish formal research studies. The Institute expects that its work will hold high visibility in the national healthcare reform dialogue.

David B. Nash, MD, MBA, founding dean, Jefferson School of Population Health, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, is serving as the chair of the IIPC's National Advisory Board. Membership of this Board includes:

  • David B. Nash, MD, MBA, founding dean, Jefferson School of Population Health, Thomas Jefferson University
  • David Wright, MPH, executive director, Institute for Interactive Patient Care
  • Rhonda Anderson, RN, DNSc, FAAN, FACHE, pediatric administrator/service line administrator, Banner Health
  • Leah Binder, MA, MGA, chief executive officer, The Leapfrog Group'/>"/>
