· Thoughts on the future of patient-centered measurement in healthcare

In this episode…

It is critical for health systems to set measures in place to meet patients’ needs. Quality measurement allows all consumers to be informed about where they receive care. This transforms how hospitals address issues at their facility, the rankings they score, payment incentive programs, and more.

Rachelle Zribi and Rachel Johnson-DeRycke share how YALE CORE has embarked on a journey to reach true partnership and co-creation with patients, families, and patient advocates.

In doing so, patient partners have shared critical feedback on new measure decisions. Their input and stories help bring real-world experiences to the complex problems that the research teams focus on and the challenges patients face.

In this episode of the Patient Partner Innovation Community podcast, Desiree Bradley is joined by Rachelle Zribi and Rachel Johnson-DeRycke, Health and Senior Health Outcomes Researchers at YALE CORE, to discuss their measure development processes and patient and family engagement practices.
