JOIN THE FIGHT TO ERADICATE HEALTH DISPARITIES
Health Literacy is an important concept in today's healthcare landscape. 85% of patients discharged from the hospital do not understand their discharge instructions. In the general population, only 12% of adults are considered health literate. Nine out of ten adults do not understand their or their loved one's (whom they may care for) health condition. IF A PERSON DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THEIR HEALTH, THEN HOW CAN THEY TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES? We understand that not everyone can know everything, but all of us could know more. Patients NEED to understand their health conditions. By engaging in continual education about their own health, we can increase utilization of preventative services, encourage modifiable lifestyle changes, and decrease existing health disparities so that we can improve the overall health or our communities and live healthiest lives possible. RNovations works to improve the health literacy of the community by hosting local health education events and health fairs. RNovations also provides donation based services for individuals and small groups, contracted corporate and concierge nurse consulting services.
