Patient advocacy is a service that helps patients make informed decisions regarding their health. This service is needed because there continues to be tremendous injustice in our healthcare system. These injustices can impair your ability to access crucial services needed to maintain and improve your healthcare outcome.
Because of our complicated healthcare system, many patients may not know what resources are available to them, or what questions to ask when it relates to improving their healthcare outcome.
Navigating the healthcare system can be confusing and overwhelming, leading many patients to give up on the most serious aspect of their lives.
A Patient Advocate can assist with undoing that confusion allowing patients to focus on themselves and their healing.
Currently, doctors are limited in the time they spend with their patients, leaving many people feeling overwhelmed and confused about their medical condition or treatment plan. This is where Monarch Patient Advocates becomes beneficial. We can do extensive research into your medical condition and/or treatment plan by supplementing the information your doctor provides so that you have a better understanding of the doctor’s prognosis and/or treatment recommendations.
Lastly, Patient Advocates work to decrease medical errors that continue to cause harm or death to patients. Having someone advocate on your behalf or providing you with the necessary knowledge to remain safe in or outside of a hospital setting is a vital tool to have.
