ICSI provides a collaborative environment where patients, providers and other health care organizations come together to address difficult issues. The Patient Advisory Council (PAC) is a group of volunteer patients with varying backgrounds from across Minnesota who offer their recommendations on our clinical guidelines, health initiatives and materials designed for patients.
That’s what health care needs - patients willing to share their personal stories and work together with providers and health care organizations to improve the experience, outcomes and cost of care - the “Triple Aim.”
ICSI is looking for people who want to share their patient experiences. If you’re passionate about changing health care, that’s even better. PAC members should be comfortable speaking their opinions in groups, respect other points of view, and be able to seek solutions and connect with other patients to gather broader perspectives.
As a member of the council, you will use your experiences and preferences to help us learn:
A two-year commitment is required. Participation includes bimonthly meetings (up to three hours long) held at the ICSI offices in Bloomington, MN.
The Council wishes to reflect the cultural diversity of families that live in Minnesota, including a variety of ages, ethnicities, and urban/rural communities.
