“The transition to patient-centered care, undeniably overdue, starts with a conversation, a fundamentally new conversation,” states Rick Boothman, University of Michigan Health System Chief Risk Officer. “Any skeptics need only watch Michael Skolnik’s story to understand the link between patient safety and a thoughtful conversation that places the patient at the center.”


On October 26th, Transparent Health and SolidLine Media debuted their latest patient safety documentary to an audience of nearly 250 at Children’s Hospital in Denver. The Story of Michael Skolnik, the second film in the internationally acclaimed The Faces of Medical Error…From Tears to Transparency series, shares with viewers how open, honest conversations about the risks, benefits and alternatives to a procedure can indeed change the outcome or save a life. Michael’s story, told poignantly through his parents, David and Patty Skolnik, along with commentary from health care experts, teaches viewers how moving Informed Consent as an event to Shared Decision-Making as a process can improve outcomes and reduce risk to institutions. The documentary will be used to educate caregivers in healthcare systems throughout the world.
