How MHRI Researchers are Changing the Care Patients Receive

One of our own researchers, Dr. Kelly M. Smith, PhD, scientific director, Quality & Safety Research, has published a position paper in Annals of Internal Medicine on the issues faced in patient-centered care.

As a result of this research, MedStar Health is piloting a program aimed at encouraging patients to share, in real time, their feedback regarding their care. We have launched the We Want to Know as an intensive program aimed at encouraging patients and their families to be active in their care through feedback to their providers.

The changes that MedStar is piloting serves to show that research can directly impact the care that patients receive. Congratulations Dr. Smith!
