The 2014 Summer Institute for Informed Patient Choice (SIIPC), taking place in Hanover, New Hampshire June 25-27, will convene medical, legal, ethics, and policy professionals and patient advocates around the individual and systems-level consequences of the lack of transparency and patient involvement in health care (i.e, “keeping patients in the dark”). Aims include facilitating a deeper understanding of the importance of greater transparency in health care; engaging in joint learning about innovative health care delivery methods to promote patient-centered care; and spreading innovative solutions such as value-based purchasing.
The program for this CLE and CME credit eligible event features a dynamic roster of over 20 confirmed speakers, two round robin style poster presentation sessions, and moderated small group working sessions during which breakthrough ideas will be channeled toward tangible outcomes such as a future special section in the Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics.
