Cardiologist sees "Quiet Revolution" in patient care

ASNC SmartBrief | Apr 20, 2015

Dr. Jennifer Mieres said she's had to "hang up her stethoscope," but the onetime chief of nuclear cardiology at NYU Langone Medical Center and first female president of ASNC continues her efforts to educate and engage patients, most recently as executive producer of PBS' "Rx: The Quiet Revolution." "My goal was to change the health care conversation," she said. "No one is really talking about the true meaning of that patient partnership. A large percent of health care outcomes occur outside of the doctor/patient or medical team encounters. So how do you empower people? How do you get them to be partners?" Mieres is a senior vice president with North Shore-LIJ Health System and a Hofstra University professor of cardiology and population health. New York Press (04/16)
