Pat Mastors – Keynote – HxRefactored

Pat Mastors has been quoted in USA Today for having an “all hands on deck- including patients” approach to reducing medical harm, which is evident in the fact that she has successfully helped to pass two patient safety laws in Rhode Island while also serving as a patient/family advisor to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Partnership for Patients. Just last year, Pat was faced with her daughter’s diagnosis of a rare and paralyzing nerve disorder, Guillain-Barre Syndrome. With a determined and empowered partnership with her care providers, Pat’s daughter’s length of stay in the hospital was less than one third the average for her diagnosis and treatment, and her rate of recovery has been exceptional.
