Financial Toxicity is compromising the delivery of quality health care!
In a recent study, “16% of patients reported high or overwhelming financial distress, and 27% reported medication non-adherence because of financial concerns…
Patients who experienced higher-than-expected financial burden were especially likely to be non-adherent.”*
We are looking for health care experts open to looking at this pressing issue from a new perspective.
Please join us for a lecture and discussion on “Proactive Financial Navigation”
This new model is helping both patients and the institutions that serve them.
