With the numerous and rapid changes in healthcare along with the rising costs of healthcare, it is more important than ever for patients to protect and educate themselves. To assist in helping patients stay in control of their medical treatment and be a ‘virtual patient advocacy tool’ is the new book, “Power To The Patient: Navigating The American Healthcare System”. The book by Dana L. Jacoby, M.B.A., M.H.S., a nationally recognized healthcare expert is now available on Amazon.
As improvements in the medical field continue to grow drastically, there has never been enough information to patients who are seeking for special types of doctor, how to efficiently schedule visits to their doctors, or funding prescribed drugs. Every consumer in the medical system will continuously seek for better patient care as statistics have shown that medical errors, communication errors and hospital inaccuracies would continue to battle the system. For a consumer, this can be strenuous, a waste of time and risky to the patient’s health. POWER TO THE PATIENT is a book that addresses these issues. Written by Dana L. Jacoby, M.B.A., M.H.S., it is served for the purpose of disseminating to the consumers, information about the hospital care system, how it works, steps to take to be in control of your hospital visits and physician schedule. It gives a great deal of insight to the secrets the medical system work on. Dana L. Jacoby, M.B.A., M.H.S., has over 20 years of experience working in the medical field. The idea for POWER TO THE PATIENT came to her during the spring of 2002 while she was visiting her grandparents on the shores of Florida. From medical equipment and pharmaceutical sales to management, physician consultation, Dana has moved through a number of departments in the medical system. Currently, she consults with physicians on urology and oncology dealing mainly with strategic planning, alternative payments models, financial management, operational efficiencies, service line development, and process improvements.
