How does it work?
JKPPA will either match you with a patient who needs your help or act as a resource to you and your loved one who you are already assisting with health care.
The worst time for a patient to have to make health care and life decisions is during the emotional throes of a health concern. By becoming a volunteer partner with JKPPA, you can assist your loved one or a patient we match with you in staying clearheaded and focused on asking the right questions and seeking out the right solutions. Your advocacy will bring much comfort and support to them at a vulnerable time in their lives. Volunteer as little or as much time as you can and feel the gratitude of helping someone in need.
At a time when corporate health care systems have taken over smaller practices and hospitals and established new methods for the delivery of health care, and with financial and insurance limitations on care, the need for individual patient advocacy is at an all-time high. We are finding ourselves interacting with health care providers who have limited time to get to know their patients and each of their medical needs. Corporate medicine is placing less qualified providers with less time per recipient on the front lines of patient care. The electronic medical records (EMR) populated from a past experience or selected from an inapplicable drop down menu may contain outdated or inaccurate information that hinders receipt of necessary care. Having a JKPPA volunteer partner to assist patients with a health care related issue can ensure that unique individual concerns and needs do not fall through the cracks.
JKPPA and its hero volunteer partners can increase patients’ access to care and point them in the right direction, making them less vulnerable.
