Help & FAQ

General Question

Patient or Health Advocates are people who support, guide, and help other people improve their health related concerns. An independent Health/Patient Advocate is a professional who has intense knowledge of the healthcare system and practice solely to help patients achieve better outcomes.

No. There are several titles used to describe Independent Advocates, some of which include Patient Advocate, Health Advocates, Health Navigators.

As the healthcare system becomes more complex, you will  need an independent, professional, and knowledgeable health advocate in your corner for safety, peace of mind, and better health outcomes. Providers are spending less time with patients, health insurers are denying prescribed treatments due to cost, providers are not talking to each other, and lack of understanding of medical diagnosis or treatment plan are some of the issues within the healthcare system that can cost patients their health, finances, and life. In addition if you or your loved ones don’t know what questions to ask, how will you know the answers you need? An Independent Health Advocate can help patients achieve better outcome through care coordination, healthcare system navigation, implementation of safety measures to prevent medical errors in the community or during hospital stay, and many more.

No. It will be difficult for Independent Health Advocates to maintain their loyalty to their clients if someone other than the client or their loved one. For example, hospital or insurer employed Patient Advocates have their primary allegiance to their employers. They can help reduce hospital or insurance company spending by preventing readmission, not necessarily because that’s the best thing for you. Independent Health Advocates put You first.
