A strategic plan is essential to develop a platform within an organization and ensure partnerships are addressing the patients’ needs while developing metrics to highlight these partnerships positively impacting our business. Executives need to understand the benefits of advocacy relations and collaborations as the metrics are not always directly applicable to short term business – also there are many benefits outside of a proposal once trust and credibility is built between organizations.

Patient Advocacy Summit is an important opportunity to share best practices and learn from others who share the same passion and commitment to patients. Each year I have learned golden nuggets that I could take and apply immediately to my work. Furthermore, I am always reinvigorated by the passion and purpose of those working in this industry.

We often ask patient advocacy groups to collaborate, but do not challenge ourselves to do the same. The Summit is a wonderful opportunity for us to break down silos, share best practice and identify opportunities to do more for the patients we serve

The uncertainty and change in our healthcare system requires patient advocacy professionals to remain up to date on the policies and issues that impact patient care. Attending the Summit provides the opportunity to learn about key issues that may impact patient advocacy, as well as network with other advocacy professionals.
