What is a Patient Advocate?

Patient advocates are professionals who help patients navigate the complex system of health care. They support and promote patients’ rights and work to make sure their clients’ voices are heard by health care providers and administrators. Not all patients who use patient advocates are ill. It is wise to get a jump start on understanding the health care system before an illness ensues and patient advocates, also known as patient care advocates, are there to help.
