For Providers

Short visit times add to health literacy barriers. 

Well-informed patients have better health outcomes, but unfortunately this is rarely how patients feel after a 15-minute visit. When your patients cannot understand or use their health information, they lose the ablility to manage their health effectively and make confident decisions about available treatment options.

We asked patients about their education needs

Over 90% of patients we talked to want the option to meet with a kidney coach between their doctor's appointments.
