The Institute for Patient- and Family-Centered Care (IPFCC) is pleased to have partnered with OpenNotes to bring this important one-day meeting to Washington, DC as part of efforts to enhance quality, safety, and the experience of care in ambulatory settings.
OpenNotes is a movement dedicated to making health care more open and transparent by encouraging doctors, nurses, therapists, and others to share their visit notes with patients. Sharing clinical notes is a patient- and family-centered best practice.
The OpenNotes website has many tools and resources for you to use and share including:
- Map of OpenNotes Implementation
- PFAC Toolkit
- Mental Health Toolkit
- Pediatric Toolkit
- Hopkins Medicine article by Johns Hopkins Patient Advisor, Podge Reed
- Research articles about OpenNotes results
- Videos of provider and patient/family stories
