Allison Dennison: A Patient’s Perspective on Healthcare

We get a patient’s perspective on healthcare from Allison Dennison on this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare podcast with Rob Oliver. Allison lives in Michigan but is originally from Arizona. She is a member of the Millennial Generation (Generation Y) and shares her experiences in healthcare, including the birth of her child. This interview comes from the Guinness World Record Setting patient interview marathon. It is interview 51, and as you will hear during the conversation takes place after 14 straight hours of interviews. I do a little multitasking during the interview because the next guest is having audio problems, please be gracious.

Here are 3 things that stood out as Alli Dennison presented a patient’s perspective on healthcare:

  • It is essential to treat each patient with dignity and respect. Medical professionals need to understand that patients are often in unfamiliar circumstances.
  • Allison’s Healthcare Heroes were the nurses and resident doctor during her childbirth experience. Their composure and critical decision-making had a calming influence during a very difficult time.
  • Quality healthcare is more than clinical expertise. It’s about treating patients as individuals, building relationships and being aware of patient’s unique needs and experiences.
