The Empowered Patient Coalition

The Empowered Patient Coalition is a non-profit charitable organization, administered by patient advocates Helen Haskel and Julia Hallisy, devoted to helping the public improve the quality and the safety of their health care. The coalition feels strongly that the first crucial steps in both patient empowerment and patient safety efforts are information and education. The public is increasingly aware that they must assume a greater role in health care issues but they need tools, strategies and support to assist them in becoming informed and engaged medical consumers who are able to make a positive impact on health care safety.
