Patient Education and Your Bottom Line

Not only does patient education work, it affects your program’s bottom line through patient satisfaction. And with the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations looking at patient education programs with its "accrediting microscope," you can’t afford not to subscribe to Patient Education Management.

Patient Education Management, a monthly newsletter from American Health Consultants, publisher of Women’s Health Center Management, is the only source for concrete "how-to," hands-on management information for patient education professionals. Each month you’ll receive useful tips from patient education managers across the country detailing how they created and implemented successful education programs — and detailing their mistakes to avoid, so you don’t have to learn the hard way. With every issue, you’ll receive a sample patient education protocol, policy, checklist, or other valuable document that you can tailor to your program without reinventing the wheel.
