Dignity Health Patient Experience Summit

Recently, I was invited to speak on the main stage at the Dignity Health Patient Experience Summit.I met Sandy and Jacob at the Cleveland Clinic in May, and I was excited to get to work with them. I also got to meet Jason from the Beryl Institute after months of twitter conversation. 🙂

It was really great to see how all of their hospitals are embracing the patient experience. I am always inspired to see people trying to make it better for patients, and it makes me hopeful for better healthcare experiences for all patients.

I was so happy that the leaders were willing to take pictures with me and my Cure JM bracelet, and they were nice to learn about Juvenile Myositis and Cure JM.

Here are some of the pictures from the event.IMG_0285

Interview at Community Health Network

I was honored to be interviewed at Community Health Network a few weeks ago, and they were kind enough to share with me the video. The video above is a shortened version of the interview. First, they played my original, “I am a patient and I need to be heard” video, and in the middle, they played my “Why does everything beep?” video.

The full length version can be found here if you want to see the entire thing 🙂

Thank you to the Community Health Network for having me at your event. It was a lot of fun to share my story and to get to meet an organization that is working so hard to deliver a great patient experience. I love your Patients First idea.
