Knowledge is power. We’re here to support the patient journey
Empowering patients is critical
Patients who are engaged in their own health and treatment tend to have better outcomes, so it is critical to help ensure that patients are educated and feel in control of their disease. Whether you are looking to help patients understand the benefits of joining a trial or evaluate the value of a therapy, education is key to fostering positive health behaviors that leads to better patient outcomes.
How we can help
Amplity Health offers various roles to aid in patient education and adherence. Clinical Health Educators (CHEs) is an umbrella for a number of customized programs: from nurse navigators to patient advocates to clinical nurse educators. CHEs provide disease-state and product-specific education and support to patients, caregivers, and physicians. We understand the differences between educating and motivating patients and are able to help patients with both. We will work with you to:
- Identify the challenges that you are facing and the goals that you want to achieve
- Partner to create tailored programs that will help you reach your goals—and ultimately help your patients reach their goals
- Design a patient support program that enables the patient to receive education regarding why and how to take or self-administer their medicine and remain motivated over time with the right ongoing coaching and touchpoints
Are you concerned about patient adherence?
Patients often feel overwhelmed and may not be able to get the time needed to help them truly understand why they are prescribed medication or how they should take it. One core problem is that they either do not take their medications correctly or they completely stop taking them over time.
Health educators work to optimize health outcomes by facilitating patients’ adherence and retention to drug therapies and other healthcare regimens. When you get this right, it will lead to better outcomes for patients, providers, and the wider healthcare system.
