31 Jan Medical Care Navigation
Patient Advocates play an integral role in helping patients and families achieve better health outcomes.
One of the primary services provided by Patient Advocates is Medical Care Navigation. This encompasses communicating with healthcare providers, advocating for patient rights, identifying and applying for health resources. Patient Advocates work one-on-one with clients to encourage continued commitment and adherence to medical treatment, access to social services, improved communication, and prompt re-engagement in care.
Additionally, services such as preparing patients for their medical appointments, coordinating care between specialists, and clarifying medical diagnoses. They will even attend medical appointments if within a geographical area. No need to go it alone. Perhaps a Patient Advocate is right for you.
