Race, Ethnicity, Language, and the Patient Experience

Race, Ethnicity, Language, and the Patient Experience
October 22, 2013
3:00-4:00 ET
2:00-3:00 CT
Focusing on strategies to improve quality, address disparities and achieve equity will be essential in a time of rapid health care system change. This webinar, in collaboration with the Disparities Solutions Center at Massachusetts General Hospital, will discuss how measuring patient-reported outcomes is an essential component of quality assessment, yet patient experience surveys often under-represent racial, ethnic and linguistic minorities. 

This webinar will highlight:
What we know about the patient experience and how it leaves voices out
Strategies that organizations can take to get at the patient experience (HCAPHS).
Shortcomings of the current tools.
Lessons learned and results from the MGH survey
Key take-home points and perspectives on where this field is going.
