The Partnership to Improve Patient Care (PIPC)—whose members include organizations representing patients, people with disabilities and other stakeholders—today released a public opinion poll regarding healthcare delivery and access in America. The survey, which builds on prior surveys conducted by PIPC in 2013 and 2015, shows that of nearly 2,000 registered voters polled by Morning Consult, 8 in 10 say that doctors and patients should be able to decide the best course of treatment without government interference and that Medicare reforms should move toward patient-centered health care by giving physicians and patients the support they need to choose the best care for them
PIPC is proud to be a member of the Health Care Payment and Learning Action Network’s (LAN) Consumer and Patient Affinity Group (CPAG). The CPAG members were provided a rare opportunity to develop consensus-based consumer and patient principles to inform the work of the LAN and its many subgroups. A draft of the principles agreed to by the Leadership Committee of the CPAG are now available for comment. A list of the Leadership Committee members is available here.
