For more than a decade, Cleveland Clinic has pioneered an international movement to improve the care experience for clinicians and patients by emphasizing empathy in healthcare. Through honest commentary on what hasn’t worked and patient reflections on what’s still needed, the annual Patient Experience Summit provides a forum for industry leaders from around the world to work together to deliver the best clinical, physical and emotional experience to patients and families.


Reimagine the Patient Experience

Healthcare leaders will explore patient perspectives and clinical considerations to understand how empathy and innovation must be incorporated as integral pillars to deliver the best healthcare experience.

Here's what past summit attendees are saying…

  The speakers were all fabulous, energized, educated and passionate.
  This event was worth every second of my time. The speakers were great and really validated the purpose of every one in attendance trying to improve patient experience in our daily roles.
  One of my favorite aspects of the summit was the opportunity to network across other disciplines within the patient experience. 
  Loved the use of the patient stories to guide the learning and the team approach.
  The overall content was excellent; a nice blend of inspirational, aspirational and tactical. I particularly enjoyed the speakers that are challenging the status quo.
