Informal Conversation on Health Literacy

Tuesday March 26, 2019 at 03:30 PM

Register for the Discussion Here

40-80% of information shared in exams rooms with patients is misunderstood or not remembered. Addressing health literacy* issues is a critical component in creating a truly patient- and family-centered system of care and improving health outcomes. IPFCC is inviting everyone to discuss and explore ways different organizations are working to address this challenge. How are patient and family advisors (PFA) partnering in these efforts? How have PFAs improved our understanding of the lived experience of receiving and acting on information provided?

*Health literacy: The degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions

These informal conversations are participatory in nature, building on the experience and strengths of those who join the call. There will not be a presentation but rather let the discussion be guided by what the participants want to learn more about through the sharing of our collective experiences. Come join the conversation to learn from others and to share your successes and challenges. Mary Minniti, Senior Policy and Program Specialist, will facilitate this discussion.

If you are interested but unable to attend live, we still encourage you to register because all registrants will receive a link to the recording of the discussion after the event. The recording and any resources will also be posted in PFCC.Connect for all members to watch and/or refer back to. If you have further questions, please contact Annette Lee at [email protected] or Mary Minniti at [email protected]

Since its inception, the Health Datapalooza has become the gathering place for people and organizations creating knowledge from data and pioneering innovations that drive health policy and practice.

Sitting at the nexus of ideas, evidence, and execution, Health Datapalooza is where Federal policymakers and regulatory leads take their seats beside the health system’s chief officers (information, medical, innovation), Silicon Valley startups, data gladiators, and patients. More than a meeting, Health Datapalooza is a diverse community of big thinkers and roll-up-our-sleeves-and-get-it-done problem solvers who share a mission to liberate and use data to improve health and health care.

As the challenges facing health and health care continue to evolve, we’re digging into the real world experience of turning information into innovation. What works, what doesn’t, why, and what’s coming next?

Why Health Datapalooza?

Real Collaboration Between Policymakers and Innovators

Only at the Health Datapalooza will you find meaningful collaboration and face-to-face conversations between influential policymakers, from all levels of government, and innovators and change makers about the big ideas, big opportunities, and policy hurdles for improving health and health care.

On-Site Action and Results

Health Datapalooza attendees are doers. We aren’t afraid to get our hands dirty. You’ll not only hear about the real world concepts and actionable steps you can take back to your workplace, you can also jump into on-site “working sessions,” using real data, to tackle a problem or introduce a new idea with your peers.

Just the Right Size

Some conferences are big and overwhelming, while others are small and lack diverse voices. Health Datapalooza offers a big conference feel in an intimate setting. The event supports a healthy exchange of ideas from a variety of voices in a setting where meaningful and consequential conversations take place

The Many Faces at Datapalooza

  • C-Suite Executives (CIOs, CMOs, CMIOs, CDOs, CTOs)
  • Technology Developers
  • Venture Capitalists
  • Patients and Advocates
  • Startups/Incubators
  • Policymakers/State and Federal Government
  • Delivery Systems
  • Health Plans/Insurers

So Much to Take Away

Attend Health Datapalooza to:

  • Learn about today’s newest and most effective uses of health data
  • Explore innovative technologies and solutions that are improving health care delivery
  • Meet real people, with real world examples, and real results
  • Take back to your work actionable steps and practical concepts

In April, the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network (LAN) will be launching its highly-anticipated Roadmap for Driving High Performance in Alternative Payment Models. The Roadmap is an interactive, web-based tool meant to serve as a guide for implementing successful alternative payment models (APMs). It offers a repository of actionable approaches payers can use to work with providers and stakeholders to design and implement APMs, and explores promising practices currently being used by payers and providers in the field. The Roadmap also contains beneficial decision-making insights to help health care stakeholders work together in shifting from fee-for-service reimbursement to payment models based on value instead of volume.

Mark your calendars: On April 3, the LAN will host an online webinar at 11:30 a.m. ET to walk you through the tool, featuring payers and providers sharing their feedback on how they envision using the tool to address the challenges they face in APM design and implementation.

Stay tuned for more information about the Roadmap’s launch, including details on the webinar. Learn more now about the Roadmap’s journey by visiting our web page at http://hcp-lan.org/apm-roadmap.

Founded in 1994, the Health Care Systems Research Network (HCSRN) is an innovative consortium of research centers based on community-based health delivery systems. The HCSRN consists of 18 members (17 based in the US and one in Israel). Members of the Network share a commitment to rigorous public domain research that addresses critically important questions for improving health and healthcare. 


The conference is open to the entire research community including those from member and non-member sites, clinicians, patient-partners, federal and industry partners and others with an interest in improving health care for all. Our program includes scientific results, health informatics and insights about conducting research in real-world care delivery settings.
