AHIMA HI Pitch

How You Can Improve Health Literacy

Episode Summary

On this episode of the HI Pitch podcast, Grace Cordovano, PhD, BCPA, takes up a topic she discussed at the AHIMA21 Virtual Conference on the panel “HI Professionals: Champions for Patients”: how health information might be taken bedside, to ease the health literacy challenges that patients and caregivers often face in navigating an illness. A noted patient advocate and the founder of Unblock Health, Cordovano asks what it would be like if “health experience literacy” that explains and demystifies the entire patient experience were taught in schools.
