HealthEast Clinics Patient Care Guides
How proceeds will be used
Every day, patients are faced with navigating a health care delivery system that may be confusing and overwhelming. Health concerns for oneself or loved ones, combined with financial uncertainty, can lead to stress that is proven to block compliance to doctor’s orders.
Patient-centered care, as demonstrated by Patient Care Guides, means treating patients as partners, involving them in planning their health care and encouraging them to take responsibility for their own health is an important aspect of quality, fiscally responsible care.
Funding from Festival of Trees will allow Clinics to fund development of programs to advance Patient Care Guides in Clinics, including:
- Creating patient education literatures
- Establishing Patient and Family Councils to partner with us as we develop new ways to structure care in the midst of health reform
- Securing employee development and education opportunities
