GALVESTON, Texas, April 15, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The 2021 Healthcare Advocate Summit, presented by the National Association of Medication Access & Patient Advocacy (NAMAPA), announced today its inaugural summit is taking place on September 8-10, 2021. The three-day summit will be held at the Galveston Island Convention Center at The San Luis Resort, Galveston Island, Texas. "Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our guests and feedback from the advocate community, we postponed the event from May to September", said NAMAPA executive director Eric Hoffend.
The Healthcare Advocate Summit was created by Advocates, for Advocates and is the premier event for anyone involved in patient access, navigation, and reimbursement. The event anticipates drawing over 300 advocates and healthcare leaders attending, along with over 100 leading industry experts.
Healthcare advocates working on behalf of the patient may not be aware of all the resources available or may not be trained on how to effectively navigate the complex healthcare landscape. This lack of actionable knowledge can negate or delay treatment, and can severely impact patient care. The goal is to educate healthcare advocates on the available pathways to resources, solutions to barriers that streamline the patient journey, that all can be leveraged to dramatically improve patient care.
