SPRINGFIELD, MO – The Missouri Hospital Association (MHA) announced the appointment of Myleah Shrimpton, Director of Claims for Ollis/Akers/Arney Insurance & Business Advisors, to The MHA Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC). Formed in 2017, and one of only a handful of state-level councils in the nation, the Missouri Patient and Family Advisory Council focuses on increasing the role of patients and family members to improve health care delivery, health outcomes and reignite joy in work through improved patient-provider relationships.
Missouri Hospital Association’s statewide PFAC, based out of Jefferson City, serves to provide leadership and support to promote sustainable integration of patient and family engagement across the different layers of care provided by Missouri hospitals. MHA’s Statewide PFAC challenges every hospital in the state of Missouri to appoint at least one nonemployee patient or family member serving on at least one committee within the organization by July 2020.
“I am excited to be at the forefront of the guidance process in patient and healthcare initiatives which could ultimately impact the local level,” stated Myleah Shrimpton.
Myleah Shrimpton has been an employee-owner of Ollis/Akers/Arney Insurance and Business Advisors since 2010 and is the Lead Claims Manager for the agency. Myleah is a graduate of Drury University and holds licenses in Property and Casualty, Life and Health Insurance.
