Current Work Groups
- National Health IT Patient Family Advisory Council (in partnership with OpenNotes)
- Compensation Workgroup
- Opioid Response Workgroup
The strength of the PFAnetwork is it’s perspective and commitment to including all patients and families experiencing the healthcare system. The PFAnetwork Work Groups represent the communities response to high priority issues, such as the response to the opioid crisis, as well as issues that directly impact the communities’ capacity to partner with healthcare systems, such as how to appropriately compensate patient family advisors.
Workgroups are created in response to the PFAnetwork members and are supported by PFCCpartners. Occasionally, partnerships develop with outside organizations whose interests align with the focus of the Work Group. Work Group topics are suggested through monthly virtual meetings and online in the Yammer Community. Topics are then voted on by the PFAnetwork Advisory Board and a standard process is followed to implement the Work Group.
