Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
As founder of Medical Advocacy Plus, Angie Galatas’ vision of becoming a patient advocate began following 30 years of observing patients and family members struggle to navigate through the health care system.
In her career as a speech language pathologist, she noticed a disconnection to patient care. Some patients and families didn’t feel they were able to actively participate in decisions because they were unfamiliar with medical terminology, lab-testing results, medical coding and insurance billing. Once receiving medical information during their appointment, they often forgot the information or left to interpret the data to decide independently. This led the patient to frustration, anxiety and at a loss. To better understand the intricate details of patient care and provide appropriate counseling, she felt compelled to understand these areas and the clinical pathways determined by the medical team which led her to patient advocacy.
