What is the patient advisory council?

The patient advisory council (PAC) is a diverse group of patients who meet regularly with clinic staff to give input on how ICHS can provide better patient-centered care. This means treating a person receiving health care with dignity and respect and involving them in all decisions about their health. The PAC is instrumental in helping ICHS work toward its goal of becoming the health care choice for our community.

The patient advisory council builds and supports patient-centered values throughout ICHS by promoting respectful, effective partnerships with patients and ICHS staff. This partnership will help increase understanding and cooperation, leading to higher overall satisfaction for our patients.

Who can join?

PAC members must be:

  • current ICHS patients
  • over age 18
  • interested in improving the quality of care at ICHS

  • commit to serving a two-year term
  • attend meetings two times a year or as needed
