Research study by the Experience Innovation Network, part of Vocera,
examining how hospitals and health systems engage patients and families
as partners in designing and developing the future of caring.
• Engage patient-family partners across the spectrum from strategy to operations.
• Let patient-family partners influence both the what and the how of transformation.
• Prepare both patient-family partners and team members for effective collaboration.
• Create intentional strategies to include under-represented partners.
• Value patient-family partnership appropriately.
