Columbia, MD (PRWEB) June 12, 2006
PatientSchool.net has added yet another twist to empowering patients to partner in their health care to optimize their care while they lower their medical costs. Beginning on June 26, 2006, PatientSchool.net will begin hosting free live 30 minute health empowerment teleseminars led by an experience board-certified physician and author of consumer health literature who has spent over 12 years perfecting ways to empower patients to partner in their health care to improve their own health outcomes. See http://patientschool.net
The specific health empowerment skills taught in these teleseminars will vary over time, but the key focus will remain the same - empowering lay people to play a powerful role in their own health care in order to improve their short-term and long-term outcomes and minimize financial waste and hardship. At the end of the presentation participants will have the opportunity to ask the doctor questions related to the subject at hand.
For those who would like to continue to improve their patient skills over a longer period of time, PatientSchool.net offers an online Private School, also led by an experienced physician. This school features skill-building exercises, online assignments and quizzes to help the lay person hone his skills and boost his confidence when dealing with health care professionals in the future.
In addition to the teleseminars, PatientSchool.net now offers a free chat room where visitors can chat online about their health issues 24 hrs a day. The new Patient Blog page is yet another new offering to enrich the experience of visitors and help them build new relationships with others facing similar health issues. Visitors to the site can also sign up for free monthly doctor’s e-mail tips which will help them save time, save money, and in an emergency, perhaps even their own life.
PatientSchool.net also provides links to hundreds of valuable health resources, RSS news feeds of the latest health news, resources for the uninsured, and much more. The site even offers a unique line of health reminders cleverly packaged as greeting cards, their Cards-4-Life. Whether funny or ‘pleasantly’ serious, these cards prompt the recipient to take an action that has the potential to save his life. Visit http://patientschool.net for more information.
