The Healthcare Navigator Program is designed for individuals interested in working in navigation and who have a great deal of empathy for others. The navigation process ensures that the patient is guided through the entire continuum of the healthcare system. The Healthcare Navigator identifies barriers that may prohibit a patient from entering the healthcare system or moving within the healthcare system, and assists the patient in overcoming these barriers. Navigators help patients in a wide variety of ways through highly individualized attention.
Navigators assist patients with
- Understanding treatment and care options
- Finding doctors
- Accompanying patients to medical appointments
- Working with family and care givers
- Accessing resources and managing paperwork
All of which move the patient towards positive outcomes and higher satisfaction.
