Waltham, MA -- Geisinger Health System President and CEO David T. Feinberg, M.D., MBA, will share his vision for patient experience at the Massachusetts Medical Society’s (MMS) 16th Annual State of the State’s Health Care Leadership Forum on Thursday, Oct. 22.

Dr. Feinberg will present “Proven Experience: One Patient at a Time” on Thursday morning at the MMS Headquarters in Waltham, Mass.

“Really what people want is care that’s accessible, understandable, dignified and culturally sensitive. To me, patient experience is about the same quality of care I want for my own family,” Dr. Feinberg said. “And from a leadership standpoint, I consider every patient to be one of my patients and I want to provide them that same high quality care.”

Named to the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare as well as the 50 Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders by Modern Healthcare, Dr. Feinberg is one of the nation’s leading speakers on the patient experience.

Other presenters at the forum will include Maura Healey, Massachusetts Attorney General; Monica Bharel, M.D., Massachusetts Commissioner of Public Health; and Troyen A . Brennan, M.D., executive vice president and chief medical officer of CVS Health.

The forum is hosted by Dennis M. Dimitri, M.D., president of the Massachusetts Medical Society and moderated by Jim Braude, host of WGBH-TV’s Greater Boston and co-host of WGBH’s Boston Public Radio, and Margery Egan, co-host of WGBH’s Boston Public Radio and columnist for the Boston Globe.
