The Patient is U is a Connecticut non-profit organization whose mission to improve the level of compassionate care in the healthcare system, empower caregivers and patients to expect compassionate care & support, improve the patient experience & personalize the patient-provider relationship.
Compassionate care improves patient outcomes by increasing patient satisfaction, fostering better communication & increasing the likelihood of patient adherence to prescribed treatments & medication regimes. Compassion results in better quality care & drives down health care costs as improved outcomes reduce complications. Additionally, a more personal patient-provider relationship decreases the likelihood of medical malpractice claims. TPIU believes that compassionate care is not limited to the patient’s interaction with doctors and nurses, but extends to every interaction in the patient journey, from the initial phone call with the receptionist to the conversation with the outgoing parking lot attendant.
