00:00
can you just explain to me a little bit
00:01
about what is a healthcare navigator and
00:04
what brought you to this point in your
00:05
career sure absolutely
00:07
so a healthcare navigator is much more
00:10
than just GPS Inge we’re educators and
00:14
we’re also advocates as well what we try
00:16
to do is help people coordinate services
00:19
as you alluded to going from Doctor to
00:22
doctor and that can be very very complex
00:25
the way our system is right now it’s
00:27
very siloed so for every part of your
00:30
body you go to see a different type of
00:32
doctor absolutely and unfortunately
00:41
those doctors don’t talk to each other
00:43
so it really is a puzzle as you said to
00:47
keep those pieces together and a lot of
00:49
it comes down to education as well and
00:51
unfortunately doctors and nurses don’t
00:53
have the time to sit down and really
00:55
educate their their patients they just
00:58
don’t they’re stretched to the limit so
01:00
that’s where we can be helpful and then
01:02
sometimes we also advocate on our
01:04
patient’s behalf if if necessary but we
01:07
do it you know very politely and
01:09
professionally but sometimes it is
01:11
needed
