Family Advisor Network (FAN)
The Children’s Health℠ Family Advisor Network (FAN) is a positive, solutions-oriented collaborative of current and former Children’s Health patients, their families and our team members who use their unique perspectives and clinical and professional expertise to drive meaningful improvements to the patient experience. The valuable feedback and insights gleaned from FAN help Children’s Health as we strive to continually deliver the highest-quality, most compassionate care to the nearly 300,000 patient families we serve each year.
The Family Advisor Network (FAN) is a productive way for patients, families and team members to leverage their experiences with Children’s Health to provide guidance on how to improve the patient experience. We partner with patient families to ensure the patient experience is at the center of everything we do, and seek to:
- Identify issues
- Improve existing processes
- Generate new ideas on every aspect of the patient experience, including care delivery, services and amenities
- Assist in design planning for renovations and new facilities
- Provide a forum to openly discuss concerns and suggestions
- Objectively evaluate the quality of care provided
- Establish a robust two-way dialogue between patient families and care providers
- Advocate for the system’s consistent, meaningful engagement with patient families
