September Healthcare Transparency Forum – Honest Talk about Medical Mistakes
Lack of information about infections and errors in the nation’s healthcare industry are life threatening and costly secrets. There is a growing demand for honest and open public dialogue about keeping consumers safe. On Thursday, September 24th, 2009, at 7pm at Mt. Auburn Hospital, patients, consumers and health care providers will discuss the challenges of healthcare transparency in patient care.
Moderated by award winning television journalist and community leader, Liz Walker, the forum will feature health care professionals including Linda Kenney, MITSS Executive Director; Jim Conway, MITSS Board Member and SVP at IHI; Jeanette Clough, CEO from Mt. Auburn Hospital; Paul Levy, CEO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center; and, Dr. Richard Miller, thoracic surgeon at Southcoast Hospitals Group.
The goal of the forum, which is part of a 4-part series called Better Living with Liz Walker airing on WCVB-TV, is “…to help create patient provider dialogues that inform and empower,” according to Walker.
We urge you and your colleagues to attend this important forum. If you would like more information, contact Winnie Tobin at (617) 232-0090 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you there.
