Advancing the role of patient and family/caregiver engagement in health care
The Institute for Interactive Patient Care (IIPC) is a research-based health care organization dedicated to empowering patients and improving health outcomes through patient engagement. Our mission is to foster widespread adoption of patient and family/caregiver engagement strategies, which have been shown to optimize patient care outcomes. To achieve this, IIPC participates in high-quality research and advocates for advances in policy, standards and payment reform. IIPC fills a unique role in health care by serving as a reliable source of information and evidence-based data on the impact and efficacy of engagement.
IIPC is governed by an independent board of directors comprised of prominent leaders in health care who are knowledgeable about evidence-based patient engagement strategies. The board oversees the selection and governance of a National Board of Advisors, which guides, validates and disseminates the research conducted by IIPC. Through its National Board of Advisors, IIPC provides a forum in which health care leaders worldwide learn about, adopt and promote the establishment of patient engagement standards.
IIPC is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
