For many consumers of health care services, data transparency can serve as an essential aspect of successful patient engagement and shared decision-making. With data transparency, patients and families, as well as providers, are empowered with information and knowledge to make a well-informed decision on their health care options. Families in need of medical services can benefit greatly from open and honest communication on hospital outcome data. For the provider, having this information also allows the provider to evaluate performance more completely and to work to improve any deficiencies.
At the conclusion of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Explain the challenges and opportunities with data transparency for patients and families living with a birth defect and/or other special health care needs.
- Help providers recognize the value of transparency to patients and families.
- Apply strategies for successful translation from prose to practice to improve shared decision-making.
