A Patient Advocate acts as a mediator between healthcare provider(s) and their patients to help them understand vital information about their overall health and physical well-being that will enable them to make informed medical decisions concerning their health. A Patient Advocate can be a medical professional, a family member, or a friend who collaborates directly with their clients (or with their legal representatives) to ensure that you have a voice concerning your care, treatment options, and available resources.
All About You Healthcare Advocates is a nonprofit organization whose team of patient advocates work closely with our clients and at times may need to collaborate with your healthcare provider(s) to help you formulate a plan of care and bridge any gaps concerning your care that will best suit your needs and improve your quality of life.
Our team of advocates provide one-on-one advocacy and community outreach services (within the scope of our client advocacy program) and may include assisting you with setting-up appointments for doctor(s) visits and/or medical tests, helping you obtain and review your medical records, and helping you gain access to available medical and community resources. We may at times go with you to doctor visits and/or visit you in the hospital setting, aiding with health insurance discrepancies, and helping you with seeking social support.
We provide services for individuals 18 years of age and older.
