Authentic Patient Engagement in Action!

June 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm


Patients are the true experts on their own health care needs and experiences and yet too often they are left out of the conversation. Meaningful change comes from working together and recognizing that inviting patients, family members and caregivers to work in partnership with health care teams is an important step to delivering successful digital health projects. Innovation and technology needs to be connected to real problems and by co-developing solutions we can transform the digital health care field.

Join the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council and the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) British Columbia Chapter for a session where patient partners and project leaders will speak firsthand about how the principles of patient engagement have been applied to health care projects across British Columbia. We’ll explore what actions heath care partners took to demonstrate the principles of patient engagement, what authentic patient engagement looks and feels like and how successful partnerships ultimately led to better project outcomes.
