AHRQ Releases Success Stories Shown to Help Engage Patients and Families in Primary Care
New success stories from AHRQ’s patient and family engagement project, Guide to Improving Patient Safety in Primary Care Settings by Engaging Patients and Families, provide demonstrated experience for improving patient safety in primary care: Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center provided patients with access to their clinical notes, Bellin Health (Green Bay, WI) implemented a comprehensive model of team-based care in primary care leading to improved patient and provider satisfaction and First Street Family Health Center (Salida, CO) formed a patient and family advisory council that transformed the way the practice functions. While the patient engagement effort is underway, project components will be released over the next year to support primary care practices in their efforts to improve patient safety. Access all three success stories, and other resources for providers, practice staff and patients here, and learn more about AHRQ’s patient and family engagement in primary care effort at the project page.
