Guided Patient Services provides patient advocacy and navigation to clients of all ages who are facing new or challenging healthcare issues.
Guided Patient Services supports you through your healthcare crisis at whatever level you need us. Whether you’re looking for full support, a one-time consult or anything in between, Guided Patient Services provides direction and understanding to confusing, time-sensitive healthcare decisions.
It’s our honor and privilege to be entrusted with the care of our patients and families. When you choose us, you can depend on us to be:
• Your translator. We understand medical language, and we have experience with complicated diagnoses, procedures, and treatment plans. As your patient advocate, our job is to explain these concepts to you using layman’s terms, as many times as you need us to, so you can make informed decisions.
• Your coordinator. We know that arranging healthcare appointments, surgery, or hospitalizations is time consuming and overwhelming. We will help get your appointments scheduled and make sure you are prepared when the day arrives. If you are unfamiliar with where to go or where to park, we can accompany you there, making sure you are at the right place at the right time, and that all your questions are answered. We’ll stay by your side as long as you need us.
• Your liaison. We provide coordination of care with multiple health care providers, which is especially common if you require surgery or a hospitalization. We ensure your whole health care team is on the same page and working together for your best possible outcome.
• Your representative. We attend inpatient and outpatient medical team conferences on your behalf. We listen, ask questions and relay your input to everyone involved with your care. Then we’ll explain to you what was discussed during the conference, and answer any questions you have. If you desire, we can serve as the communications contact for other family members, so everyone is up to date on your healthcare journey.
We are happy to talk with you about your specific situation. Contact us for a free consultation.
