Patient, Family, and Stakeholder Engagement

Building meaningful partnerships with patients and families and other relevant stakeholders is at the heart of person-centered care. A national leader in identifying practical, concrete ways for healthcare professionals and organizations to partner with patients, families, and other stakeholders, AIR developed the groundbreaking and widely cited framework for patient and family engagement published almost a decade ago in Health Affairs.

Our Work

Clinicians, researchers, administrators, funders, and federal and state government agencies across the nation use AIR’s cutting-edge research and tools, such as the Guide to Support Patient and Family Engagement in Hospital Quality and Safety and the Roadmap to Patient and Family Engagement in Healthcare Practice and Research, to engage patients, caregivers, families, and others in increasing quality and safety, improving outcomes, and reducing costs. AIR is also a leader in engaging patients and other stakeholders in healthcare research and performance measurement.
