Connecting the Dots, Changing the Way Patients Navigate Care

02 Dec 2014

If communities can create a focus around information sharing, about patients and with patients, Craig Brammer believes we can radically improve health and the way patients navigate health care. Part of that is getting people in a room to talk about things they don’t agree on. How do you give people a nudge to do this? In Cincinnati, they use data as a “magnet” to pull people together. Part of it is extending a low-risk opportunity to participate. “We learn together and give ourselves an opportunity to improve.” Brammer knows firsthand the importance of information—and tells a powerful story about his own personal experience.

Craig Brammer is the Chief Executive Officer of HealthBridge, the Health Collaborative, and the Greater Cincinnati Health Council.
