Many health care providers believe that the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) presents a barrier to the practice of patient- and family-centered care. When interpreted correctly, however, the regulations actually provide new opportunities for collaboration rather than limiting them. Learn more about how HIPAA can facilitate health care professionals working in partnership with patients and families.
Lindsay Lang, MHSA, RN, currently serves as a senior health care quality improvement specialist at the National Partnership for Women & Families. In this role, she guides health care organizations as they implement a collaborative patient and family engagement model of care in which patients and families work in partnership with clinicians and staff to redesign health care delivery.
Ms. Lang joined the National Partnership with 15 years of experience within the health care industry, including caring for patients as a registered nurse in oncology, hematology and dialysis care settings at the University of Kansas Hospital; supporting staff nurses as a nurse manager of inpatient neurosciences unit at Froedtert Hospital in Wisconsin; and most recently as a senior director at the National Quality Forum, focusing on improving quality through the use of performance measurement in health care settings. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from the University of Iowa, and earned a Master of Health Services Administration (MHSA) at the University of Kansas.
