The feedback goes both ways between the Patient and Family Advisory Committee (PFAC) and the Labette Health Physicians Group, according to Missy Beasley. Recently she was invited to present at the PFAC meetings at Labette Health in Parsons, Kansas.
Beasley is the clinic manager of the 25 physician and NPP multi-specialty clinics located in Parsons, St. Paul, Erie, Altamont, Cherryvale and Independence. Her clinic is a member of the Kansas Healthcare Collaborative Practice Transformation Network (PTN). It was one of the first to join, in October 2015. Beasley works with Josh Mosier, PTN Quality Improvement Advisor. Through their work on the PTN improvement measures, particularly patient involvement, Beasley said a PFAC committee was something the hospital-owned clinic had been wanting to set up. She was glad to join the hospital’s group which comprises 11 community patient and family advisors, one Board of Trustee liaison, and five or six hospital employees.
