The Empowered Patient Coalition
The Empowered Patient Coalition is a non-profit organization promoting patient advocates and health care safety. We are dedicated to promoting patient rights, resolving health care issues that result in medical errors and adverse events, and helping educate people on patient safety issues.
We provide the consumer and the patient advocate a clear understanding of the importance of forming interactive partnerships with providers and give them the tools and resources they need to become capable and confident members of the health care team. Ultimately, the public can be a valuable resource for adverse event reporting and should be called upon to help establish guidelines for patient’s rights.
