NYSHealth Fall Conference: “Empowering Health Care Consumers”

November 2, 2017

NYSHealth is sponsoring a conference this fall to explore two areas central to our Empowering Health Care Consumers priority area: information transparency and patients as partners.

The keynote speaker will be Dr. Elisabeth Rosenthal, Editor-in-Chief of Kaiser Health News, former reporter with The New York Times, and author of An American Sickness, which examines how the American health care system is failing its patients and what can be done to fix it.

The Expanding the Table: Patients as Partners panel will feature national patient advocates and their experiences with the health care system. The moderated discussion will explore how the health care system can support meaningful engagement and partnerships with patients and their families.

The Transparency with a Purpose panel will feature innovative examples from New York State and nationally.
