When was the last time you were in a medical crisis?
When was the last time you had a health scare with a family member and felt you had no one to turn to?
The medical landscape is changing. Healthcare reform, economics, and the modern agrahospital system are clouding basic personal care. We no longer treat patients, we treat communities. We no longer heal our patients, we manage their insurance companies, input their data into impersonal computer systems, and spit them out of the hospital with a nonsensical set of discharge instructions. The doctor who performs your yearly physical is different from the doctor who triages you during an unplanned office visit or who oversees your hospital care.
Frankly, it's not surprising that patients and families with no medical training or experience are floundering under the weight of this awkward system. How could you not?
I proudly announce the upcoming launch of CrisisMD.
Visiting the hospital or doctor's office can feel like entering another country. The terminology is unfamiliar and the process convoluted. CrisisMD will help fill the gap. We provide healthcare coaching, advocacy, and translational services to families in need.
