Healthcare reform, patient-centered care, and consumerism are current trends
which are significantly impacting how healthcare is being delivered in the
United States. We, as consumers, are being forced to be more involved in
medical decision-making for ourselves and our families. Enhanced patient
engagement is good, but ever changing health insurance networks, an aging
physician workforce, a segmented care continuum, and changing reimbursement
and insurance coverage rules will necessitate knowing how to appropriately
select physicians and navigate an increasingly complex health system.
It begins with health care literacy and expanding one's knowledge. It then
requires a willingness to participate in the decision-making. Come and
learn the new principals of engagement required to optimize your health
care. Discover how to find safe, decent care and how to communicate with
health care professionals while participating in treatment decisions.
Moreover, learn how to organize your health care and develop strategies to
minimize your care costs.
