80042748 - Second Annual Patient-Provider Collaboration Conference: Making Patient-centered Care a Reality

Date & Location
Friday, June 23, 2017 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM   Baltimore, MD


Improved collaboration between patients and providers has been shown to have positive effects on patients’ engagement with their health. Patients who are more engaged in their own health care can voice what health goals matter to them and can participate more effectively in prevention and treatment, thereby being more likely to utilize health care services appropriately -- potentially reducing the hospital network’s costs while improving their health according to their own needs.

Patient-Provider: Making Patient-Centered Care a Reality is a full-day conference addressing a variety of established programs and approaches focused on enhancing patient-provider collaboration. Hopkins providers, administrators, and patients, as well as non-Johns Hopkins experts will speak about specific models for provider communication training, approaches for measuring quality of patient-provider collaboration, and diversity factors (i.e; culture, race, literacy, socio-economic status) that influence the patient-provider relationship. The important views and voices of Johns Hopkins patients & families have been included in conference planning and will be heard through patient and PFAC presentations.
