Patient Navigators Guide Us Through the Medical Maze

Patient Navigators Guide Us Through the Medical Maze


The March 29, 2009 edition of Parade magazine featured an article about the new specialty of patient navigation.  The article highlights some of what navigators can do.  For now, the National Cancer Institute has undertaken several pilot projects to train and deploy navigators in medically underserved areas.   But as the article also correctly points out, patient navigators can help anyone who finds the health care system confusing.  Patient Navigator, LLC, my company, has almost five years of experience  navigating on multiple fronts:  cancer diagnosis, long-term chronic diseases, elder care transitions.  Please visit www.patientnavigator.com  to learn more.  I am happy to answer questions via this blog or through the website.  Here is the parade article:   http://www.parade.com/health/2009/03/patient-navigator.html  As the article concludes, and I agree, “you don’t have to go it alone.”
