Understanding and Improving the Patient Experience
Dennis A. Robbins, PhD, MPH
Learn More
Each of us has the choice to be a victim or a vanguard. It is an uphill battle to remain a vanguard in healthcare contexts particularly when one is faced with unexpected and serious situations. For a person to be thrown into a situation of passivity, helplessness and an almost total lack of control is not how we generally approach our lives. This experience can be daunting when illness or an unexpected procedure dominates one’s life, be it for the long or short term. Creating architectures into which we can more comfortably fit is an important challenge to address, in addition to prioritizing getting a “patient” back to their original.Key Take-Aways:

  • Framework to better move patients from health to illness and illness back to health
  • Insight on how to improve the patient experience and strategies to get the “patient” back to being “me”
  • Best practices to transform challenges into successes for payors and providers to create safe and responsive environments committed to continuous quality improvements

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30, 2019 | Innovation Site Tour – BD Center for Safety and Clinical Excellence


In an ideal world, your medication use process would have zero errors and zero waste. The path to getting medications safely and efficiently to patients is not an easy one.  Administering medications safely and on time involves at least 30 steps between computerized physician order entry and barcode medication administration. These steps cross multiple departments and systems, and the complexity of the entire process results in a 45% risk of defect or error.
Join us to learn how BD is helping to reduce this complexity, improve medication safety and close the communication gap between devices. Your visit will include a guided tour showcasing a patient-centric approach to medication management.
On this tour of the BD Center for Safety and Clinical Excellence you will have the opportunity to:

  • Engage in clinical simulations in true-to-life patient care areas
  • Gain hands-on experience with the latest technologies and tools
  • Meet with subject matter experts & BD leadership
