Today marks the release of the Consumer Health Quality Council’s story bank video series. We will premiere the three videos at a State House event Thursday morning at 10 AM in room A-2. The videos are below. They and other consumer stories are also available on our webpage www.hcfama.org/quality/stories.
The videos are the latest accomplishment for the Consumer Health Quality Council’s Story Bank project. Several of our Council members are sharing their stories in order to put a compelling human face on systemic health care quality issues. These videos were developed by Consumer Health Quality Council members in cooperation with BU School of Public Health Students Madhavi Bezwada, Meredith Mueller, and Hsiang-Yin Yeh.
In these videos, three courageous individuals share how systemic health care quality problems forever changed their lives and the lives of their parents, children, and families. They make a powerful call for reform. We hope that you share these stories with your colleagues, families, and friends. Share the message that our health care system must make systemic changes so that these stories are not relived by others.
