The growing need for self-health advocacy.

In today’s rapidly evolving healthcare landscape, navigating through the digital realm of medical information can be overwhelming. At Patient Better, we are on a mission to empower individuals with the knowledge and skills to take charge of their health and make informed decisions. Through our innovative health consumer learning program, we’re revolutionizing patient-centered education, ensuring people have successful health experiences throughout the health journey and beyond.

Are you a good patient?

Research shows that 80 million Americans unwittingly suffer from healthcare illiteracy. Low health literacy rates are believed to cost the U.S. healthcare system between $106 billion and $238 billion annually, translating to over $2,600.00 per person each year. Over a person's lifetime living with a condition, this accumulates to tens of thousands of dollars spent on avoidable challenges. Are you one of them?
