Diane Stollenwerk, executive director of Patients’ View Institute, brings the patient perspective to FMAHealth having served for two decades as a patient advocate.
In addition to running Patient’s View Institute, a nonprofit that amplifies patients’ voices using evidence-based data culled from more than 1,000 stories told by patients and their loved ones, Diane leads a consulting practice working in patient engagement, population health, measurement, and transparency, while applying skills in public affairs, planning, facilitation, and marketing.
She serves on the Maryland Health Care Commission, which oversees system planning, measurement, and public reporting. Diane is also on the board of FreeState Justice, providing legal and support services for the LGBTQ community.
In 2010, she moved to Washington D.C. to join the National Quality Forum, to be their first vice president of stakeholder engagement. Prior to that, she lived in Seattle for 20 years, where she helped found the Washington Health Alliance, a business-led multi-stakeholder group focused on improving healthcare quality and affordability.
