Expert Medical Navigation recognizes that when you are faced with a difficult decision regarding any surgery, medication or other major health concern, deciding what to do and who to trust can be overwhelming and frightening. Online sources are hard to navigate and may not offer the right information tailored to your own medical condition. And despite their best efforts, your family doctor often may not have the ability to comment on a specialist’s recommendation, and may simply say, “you are in good hands.” But are you?
For many health conditions, more than one treatment is medically acceptable. A physician or specialist may recommend one option over another based on their personal preference, individual skill, or relationship with a medical facility, drug or medical device company. That recommendation, however, may not align with your personal preference, values, or family and work situation. Moreover, you may be affected by the misdiagnosis, errors and unnecessary testing that remain a major problem in our healthcare system.
When you turn to EMN for guidance on your medical condition, you receive access to top tier physicians and the most up-to-date evidence based medical practices, clinical research and collaborative decision making techniques. EMN physicians are academically and professionally respected, and have significant experience in the conditions on which they advise. As independent medical advisors, they can help you understand your options and provide unbiased advice on what is best for your needs.
EMN’s physicians are complemented by a robust set of electronic patient decision aids that help you understand your personal preferences and medical situation so that treatment information can be tailored to your specific needs. You can share this with your primary care physician to ensure your care team is fully informed on your preferences and options.
