The EngagingPatients.org community is proud to announce two distinguished winners of the third annual John Q. Sherman Award for Excellence in Patient Engagement:
Iora Health and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Buerger Center Design Team.
Drawn from a highly competitive field of participants, the two captured the judges’ immediate attention with their end-to-end approach to engaging patients and families in the design and implementation of care initiatives, which served to truly transform the care and have a measureable impact on patient experience and outcomes.
Iora’s award-winning nomination.
The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
Buerger Center Design Team
They realized it could only happen with the active, meaningful involvement of families in the Center’s creation from design to completion. And so it was. Through both family and youth advisory councils, their voices were heard, and with the help of on-staff Family Consultants and Ambulatory Services’ leadership, communication was maintained and obstacles were overcome. The impact of this family-provider collaboration has been profound, as detailed in their award submission. Take a moment to read it here.
