I don’t know HOW I would have gotten through this without your guidance
Advocacy Care Connection’s team is privileged to have served as the compassionate, personal healthcare advocate for the following select clients:
Brought in by a concerned family member, Advocacy Care Connection navigated the healthcare system for a 35 year old male who went un-diagnosed for almost a year and struggled to meet activities of daily living. We coordinated his trip to the Cleveland Clinic where he was finally diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy. We were able to coordinate his follow up care and educate the patient and his family on this condition and its treatment.
Received an emergency phone call from a physician and his wife needing assistance with their 83 year old father. Client was evaluated and taken to ER where he was diagnosed with urosepsis and admitted for IV antibiotics and fluids. The patients family was 1 ½ hours away and unable to get to the patient. The client’s medical condition, labs, and medications were evaluated for appropriateness. The family was immediately notified of results.
