About Our Health Illiteracy Epidemic
Research shows that at least 80 million Americans unwittingly suffer from healthcare illiteracy. The astounding annual consequence of this $108 to $238 billion epidemic wreaks havoc on our already strained healthcare system. Health illiteracy’s ripple effect has an even more profound impact on fellow patients, families, and essentially everyone else involved in care. It equals up to $7,135 per person in preventable medication misuse, escape from unnecessary inpatient and outpatient care, avoidance of longer hospitalizations, and bypassing superfluous trips to the emergency room.
