The Association for Patient Experience is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization established to support health care professionals, patients and their families by improving the patient experience. It is committed to advancing the patient experience and positively impacting the global delivery of patient-centered health care.

A key element of the mission of The Association for Patient Experience is to engage patients. The Association links from the Institute to the front line providers who work every day to improve the delivery of health care for our patients. This relationship helps give patients a direct voice in the national patient experience movement.
