Bethlehem, PA (PRWEB) September 13, 2007
DJ Iber Publishing's leading author, Dr. Ruthann Russo, has launched a new podcast entitled, Happy Times in Healthcare, to help healthcare consumers become better educated in order to receive the best possible healthcare available to them. This new podcast series covers a wide variety of topics including paying for healthcare - when you are insured and when you are not insured, selecting a new physician , using healthcare quality rating tools, and understanding your medical record.
"I had never considered myself to be much of a consumer of healthcare until my family faced a major healthcare event and we had significant challenges working our way through the system," Said Dr. Russo. "I realized that if I had difficulty navigating the healthcare system after spending 20 years working in healthcare, it must be much more difficult for the average healthcare consumer. That was my inspiration for creating this podcast."
Upcoming episodes will address the following topics:
- What is a medical mentor and why is it important?
- Selecting a primary care physician
- Your medical record: A communication tool for your healthcare professionals
- How your contributions to your history & physical make a difference in your care
This groundbreaking new podcast will be available immediately through Apple's iTunes service or via the website http://www.HappyTimesInHealthCare.com.
