New Website Offers Free Tool Designed to Help Patients Speak Up
Date:9/21/2009

CHICAGO, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- As the country continues to grapple with the future of the health care system, a new website launched today offers a free tool for individuals to improve dialogue with their health care providers and empower those intimidated by medical offices. Help Your Doctor Know You(SM) worksheets were designed for the millions who get anxious when visiting new doctors or undergoing medical tests, or who just don't want to get lost in the shuffle of an increasingly vast, complex health care system.

Many patients have a hard time sharing important personal information with healthcare providers. Stephanie Hammer-Krabbe, a professional Chicago-based marketer inspired by her own communication problems with healthcare providers, invented Help Your Doctor Know You(SM) worksheets as a practical, easy-to-use tool for others like her.

A nervous patient, Hammer-Krabbe was habitually intimidated when speaking with new, unfamiliar doctors, nurses and technicians -- often needing to jot down notes just to remember what she wanted to say. Instead of reinventing the wheel every time she visited a new office, Hammer-Krabbe decided to create a reusable form to help her introduce herself. Based on the positive feedback she received, she set out to develop a standardized version to share with others. Now she is offering a series of worksheets free of charge to improve the lines of communication between patients and healthcare professionals. The worksheets -- including versions for children and caretakers -- are available at '/>"/>
