CHARLOTTE HOWELLS introduced Robert E. Morr, Jr. who made an interesting presentation about Indiana’s Eye on Patients which is sponsored by the Indiana Hospital & Health Association (a trade association of IN hospitals started several years ago by a group of Lafayette doctors), Mr. Morr is Vice President, Indiana State Medical Association, and Indiana University School of Medicine. He noted that as a result of a 1996 survey which showed that (1) Hoosiers had basically lost confidence /trust in doctors and hospitals - felt their main thrust was just money, and (2) Public had significant concern about loss of power regarding decisions about their health, i.e., decisions being made by insurance companies, hospitals, doctors, nurses rather than the patient or relatives, the objective of Indiana’s Eye on Patients evolved. The objective is to make Hoosiers full partners in the decisions affecting their health care, and ultimately the health status of their communities. Mr. Morr closed by indicating that IN was the first state where three such agencies have come together to provide this information that the public wants. A brief Q & A session followed.
COLLECTORS: STEVE HICKMAN and LAURIE BROSE; Greeting by JIM DWORKIN and ERNIE POLAND; Invocation by MARK RUSSELL; Singing led by NICK CLARK; and Rotary piano by REX KEPLER.
