In this episode we highlight why we are all here in the Business of Healthcare. To provide access to care for the patient population. It doesn’t matter what our role is, we have an obligation to fight for the patient so they can get what they need to improve their quality of life and in many cases save their life.
I had the privilege of speaking with two Healthcare Advocates and I am sharing that conversation with you all. Elizabeth Johnson and Melissa Paige join me today to talk about how they became Patient and Healthcare Advocates and how Healthcare Advocate Summit came about.
