At age 28, Michael O’Neil underwent aggressive surgery and chemotherapy for non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. While his clinical treatment was excellent, he often felt that his care was being done to him rather than with him. Michael spent a lot of time waiting and wondering, a state that fueled his desire to change the status quo. After his recovery, he made it his mission to help people feel more connected to their care.
Today, that mission is our mission at Get Well.

Translating patient engagement theory into practice
The O’Neil Center for Patient Engagement Research is the industry’s first think tank for studying and advancing the science of patient and family engagement. It focuses on informing more effective healthcare management.
Whether that means leveraging empirical evidence to demonstrate the outcomes associated with patient engagement, or developing evidence-based tools and processes to help healthcare organizations with on-the-ground strategy and change management, the O’Neil Center works in partnership with Get Well’s clients to connect the art and science of patient engagement.
Get Involved Now, Get Well’s 501(c)(3) charity, works to meet the personal and emotional needs of cancer and pediatric patients, high-risk pregnancy patients, and U.S. Veterans during life-defining healthcare moments.
Through fundraising, community events, and donations, the Get Involved Now grant program helps hospitals support the non-healthcare needs of patients nationwide during their healthcare journeys.
