Promoting Patient Advocacy
The patients who need help the most are suffering while the nation remains
in the dark about the lifesaving benefits of Patient Advocacy.
The nation is in the dark so spreading the word about the life-saving benefits of Patient Advocacy is an essential part of our mission.
When a healthcare crisis strikes, having a reliable advocate in your corner is essential; A personal representative to oversee the situation and help limit potential mistakes and improve the overall experience. Our mission includes spreading the word and shining a bright light on this profession.

Unfortunately, Patient Advocacy is largely invisible to the general population.  Most people have never heard of a Patient Advocate and the public has no idea how Patient Advocates can help guide and protect patients and loved ones in the midst of a medical crisis. This is where we come in...

Greater National Advocates is committed to promoting Patient Advocacy on a national level. Our goal is to make this important, yet nearly invisible field, commonly known throughout every household in America. 

Our mission to improve the patient experience is contingent on informing and educating Americans about the dangers of the current healthcare environment and the invaluable benefits of hiring a Patient Advocate. Until the general population is in the know, medical error and other healthcare system failures will continue to rise.
