Flip the Clinic is a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation project invented to transform the patient – clinician experience. In their language, “flips” are actionable ideas for change. They offer over 60 flips on their website and here are two of my favorites: #57 Reach the Parents, Serve the Kids - which speaks to attaching clinics to elementary schools and the need for engaging the parents. #33 Provide context, improve understanding, and generate empathy between physician and patient – which resulted in a current twitter campaign (#IWishMyDoc and #IWishMyPatient) to increase shared understanding. I encourage you to engage and tweet your own thoughts on this topic.
