Allison Draper: A Patient’s Perspective on Healthcare

Allison Draper provides a patient’s perspective on healthcare during this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare podcast with Rob Oliver. She is located in North Carolina and shares her experiences about the birth of her two children. This interview with Allison Draper is #53 in the Guinness World Record Setting patient interview marathon. Just to give you context, the marathon started at 7:30 a.m. and by the time this interview took place, it was around 9:45 PM and I had been going for over 14 hours straight, without a break.

Here are 3 things that stood out as Allison Draper shared a patient’s perspective on healthcare:

  • Sometimes, people can make all the difference. Alison’s experience during the delivery of her two children was vastly different. One of the differences was a nurse named Michelle who provided comfort and exceptional care.
  • Empathy can go a long way towards building trust and relationships between practitioners and patients.
  • There needs to be an emphasis on the patient’s needs and rights over insurance company guidelines and regulations when it comes to determining a course of treatment.
