“Patient centricity” lands way at the top of the healthcare buzzword bingo scoring chart. How exactly do patients fit in the middle of an equation that includes 20 percent of the U.S. economy, shareholder demands, venture capital ROI, physician and hospital shortages and perhaps the most confusing insurance system on Earth?
We don’t have all of the answers, but one way we can start to make patient-centricity more real and less nebulous is to ensure we hear from them directly at learning opportunities like the 2019 Georgia Bio Innovation Summit.
On Tuesday, October 8 at 3:30 p.m., we will hear the stories of four members of the International Children’s Advisory Network; young advocates for the importance of the patient’s voice in pediatric care. Please join high school senior Ayana Ganesh, sophomore Ava Meisner, eighth grader Kalee Polk, junior Maci Yeager and moderator Leanne West who will share their first person accounts of what patient centricity and the importance of the patient voice means in pediatric care.
