According to the National Patient Safety Council, no other single issue has a greater impact on health status than health literacy. Nearly nine out of 10 adults have trouble applying everyday health information. People with low health literacy have a difficult time reading, understanding and acting on basic medical instructions and information. Low health literacy is a leading cause of health disparities. People over age 65 and communities of color are most at risk.
Health literacy includes a person’s needs based on social, cultural and educational factors intersecting with the demands of the health care system. Improved communication with all patients is critical within the CCO and Affordable Care Act environments.
National and local experts will share research and evidence-based practices that will help increase health literacy and improve quality, safety and outcomes for all.
