Patient Advocates

A Patient Advocate acts as a support structure and if legally contracted to do so may act as a liaison between a patient and their Health Care Provider(s). Most health care professionals see themselves as advocates for their patients, however their time and scope are limited by their job function. The Independent Patient Advocate is a vital instrument for both patient and healthcare providers in the optimal delivery of health care.
