HMC HealthWorks(TM) White Paper Highlights the Human Touch Benefits for Patients' Health and the Bottom Line

JUPITER, Fla., May 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

Medicine should be personal.

Because everyone has a unique medical and family history.

Today, when accessing your healthcare information, it's easy to feel like just a number. It is vital for patients to feel comfortable with and supported by their entire healthcare team, particularly those who may have a mental or behavioral health conditions as well as a chronic condition.

Individuals with BH/SUD conditions bring their own attitudes and beliefs to their conditions and know how they would like to receive help and support. 

HMC HealthWorks advocates bring a human-touch approach to treatment.

It is an approach that can improve outcomes and reduce costs. It is the work of our coaches/nurses to understand the attitudes and beliefs (meeting patients where they are at) to best motivate and develop a path of recovery for every participant.

Physicians and mental health professionals are increasingly embracing a patient-centered approach that affords an increased opportunity for personalized care. But for patients to benefit, they may need better support to stay engaged with their treatment plan. An advocate, like those at HMC HealthWorks are assigned to help every covered individual navigate and successfully access their healthcare benefits.  An advocate can coach and help prepare patients for medical appointments, assist in identifying specialists and making appointments and centralize the transfer of medical information. Studies also show that, "Patient navigators can not only facilitate improved health care access and quality for underserved populations through advocacy and care coordination, but they can also address deep-rooted issues related to distrust in providers and the health system that often lead to avoidance of health problems and non-compliance with treatment recommendations."
