“We believe our patient education solutions empower doctors and patients to reduce the cost of care delivered.”
Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 03, 2012
Patient Conversation Media, Inc., (PCMi) a leading eHealth media company, announced today its consumer-centric network of brands reached over 10 million unique visitors during January 2012. Patient Conversation’s portfolio of brands span the health spectrum, including dailyRx.com, a consumer health news publisher and 1-800-Therapist.com, a leading behavioral health portal and appointment solutions provider.
“We are very pleased to see so many eHealth consumers visiting our brands, engaging with our news and video content,” said Donald Hackett, PCMi’s CEO. “We believe our patient education solutions empower doctors and patients to reduce the cost of care delivered.”
Patient Conversation is supporting the objectives of The Department of Health and Human Services’ National Action Plan to Improve Health Literacy, which reports only 12% of US patients understand and use health information efficiently. This limited level of health literacy costs the US health care system an estimated $73 billion each year.
Mirroring the Plain Writing Act's federal agency standards to create content written in a "clear, concise, well-organized" manner, Patient Conversation’s national network of physicians, pharmacists, and behavioral health professionals use their real-world experiences to translate health research into easy-to-understand ‘prescribable content.’
With more than 80% of US Internet users turning to the web to search for health-related information and answers, Patient Conversation believes publishing relevant, trusted, and accurate information enables more effective patient-provider conversations.
