The Health Experiences Research Network aims to share patients’ stories in ways that are actionable and useful to a wide range of audiences. Our website was created to make it as easy as possible for the public to access rigorously collected patient narratives, representative of diverse experiences of people across the country about their experiences with an array of health conditions. First and foremost, we want patients, family members, caregivers, and others to be able to come to our website and listen to experiences in whatever ways they find useful to guide them in their own journey.
In addition, we want health care professionals, researchers, advocates, community health and public health workers, individuals working in quality improvement spaces, and others to use our data. Catalyst films provide an additional way to share patient experiences narratives and we are pleased to share this work on the site.
