One session will feature the award-winning OpenNotes project, a national effort to promote and examine the impact of increasing transparency in care by inviting patients to read and contribute to their medical records. On Tuesday, November 4, researchers Tom Delbanco, MD, MACP, and Jan Walker, RN, MBA, and Eileen Hughes, a patient who participated in the pilot study, will present the session, OpenNotes: Patients and Clinicians on the Same Page.

A Wednesday, November 5 session, Bringing Interdisciplinary Teams to the Bedside: Care Redesign on a General Medicine Service. will be presented by Robert Boxer, MD, Kristin Huang, MD, Patricia Brita Rossi, RN, MSN, and Martie Carnie, a senior patient advisor. This session will explore the redesign effort and highlight results from a preliminary study of patient and family involvement in rounds.

These are just two of the 63 concurrent breakout sessions offered at this seminar. For specific information about the program, please see the seminar agenda.
