Goal is to help patients become informed advocates and
active partners in their care
PHILADELPHIA, August 8, 2013 -- The American College
of Physicians (ACP) today announced the launch of a new Center
for Patient Partnership in Healthcare (CPPH) that will engage
patients, families, and patient organizations as partners with ACP
in designing patient-centered care delivery and in developing
educational materials for patients.
"To promote and practice truly patient-centered care, we as a
physician organization have to work closely with patient partners,
hearing their voice and assuring that care is focused on patients'
needs and preferences," said Steven Weinberger, MD, FACP, ACP's
executive vice president and CEO. "We envision the CPPH as the
vehicle to move patient care in that direction."
The CPPH will be guided by an Advisory Board for Patient
Partnership in Healthcare chaired by Phyllis Guze, MD, MACP,
immediate past chair of ACP's Board of Regents. The Advisory Board
will include two representatives from patient organizations, a
nurse, a physician assistant, and several physicians.
"By bringing together physicians, patients, and other healthcare
professionals, the CPPH will develop programs and offer resources
targeted to both the macro level of care delivery and the micro
level of the individual patient-physician interaction," Dr. Guze
Wendy Nickel will serve as the CPPH's director. With close to 20
years experience in healthcare, her work has focused on improving
the quality of care and patient safety through use of quality
improvement teams, patient engagement, and development of disease
Prior to joining ACP, Nickel led the Center for Hospital
Innovation and Improvement at the Society of Hospital Medicine. She
has also held positions at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and
the Albert Einstein Network. Nickel earned a Master of Public
Health degree from Emory University in Atlanta.
