As the title says, I attended this convening, “Making Health Care Measurement Patient-Centered: A Convening to Develop Principles and Strategies,” which you can review in more detail on Twitter (#PtCenteredMeasures) – one of the joys of this movement compared to others is the regular use of social media compared to others (*cough* environmental stewardship movement) – they’ll all get there with our help.
As I said in another post, many parts of these get togethers are really a proxy for respecting humans in health and health care. That’s good news because everything that’s being discussed by this group has applicability everywhere, from measures in health care to equity in health.
This is because equity comes from the ability to control one’s own destiny, and that means being able to participate and advocate in a group’s best interest. And what better group is there to advocate for than humans. As part of the walking gallery of health care 🙂 .
