About MHV


The MHV vision is of a healthcare system where physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals along with patients and family caregivers work together as partners. And, through shared knowledge and decision making, co-create better medical outcomes and better experiences of health and healthcare for all.

Patients are empowered and equipped to take active and appropriate responsibility for their health and healthcare. They are confident and open to learn about their disease and treatment, as well as ask questions and challenge opinion towards achieving their health and life goals.

Family caregivers are honored as an equal team member who brings intimate knowledge and experience of the patient to the table.

Physicians and other healthcare professionals are engaged and have an equal, balanced partnership with their patient towards mutual aims. They are emboldened to work with patients and families, thereby maximizing contributions to the care team and satisfaction as a healthcare professional.
