Providing Patient- and Family-Centered Care

Frontline Innovators on Providing Patient- and Family-Centered Care

This AHRQ Health Care Innovations Exchange video series, Frontline Innovators on Providing Patient- and Family-Centered Care, features three brief profiles of health care professionals sharing stories about how they have put the core concepts of patient- and family-centered care into practice. Stories highlighted in these videos explain how current and former patients and families advise a hospital on care improvement, how a day-treatment program partners with parents to support and stabilize children with dual psychiatric and chronic disease diagnoses, and how a hospital brings together the expertise of families and geriatric-trained staff to improve outcomes in a separate, seniors-only emergency department. These videos and their related profiles show how innovators are working in partnership with patients and families to improve care.

Million Hearts™

Million HeartsTM

The Heart 360® Innovation was one of several programs featured in a Million HeartsTM event in April 2012. The Million HeartsTM initiative invited prominent health care thought leaders and stakeholders to Washington DC, to inspire creative thinking about scaling and spreading cardiovascular prevention activities throughout the United States. Drs. Carolyn Clancy, Director of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and Thomas Frieden, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, inspired and motivated attendees to achieve the Million HeartsTM goal. Throughout the day the attendees shared real-world success stories about service delivery innovations shown to improve blood pressure and cholesterol control. Attendees also brainstormed ideas to scale and spread these and other innovative approaches to better heart health.
