Real World Health Care Blog

About Us

Real World Health Care (RWHC) is sponsored by the HealthWell Foundation, a leading nonprofit that provides financial assistance to help underinsured patients living with chronic or life-altering conditions afford their medical treatments.  Since 2004, HealthWell has awarded more than $1 billion in copay assistance to over 400,000 insured Americans and currently operates more than 65 funds.

Since 2013, RWHC has featured compelling content on health care issues affecting Americans. From features on the people, programs and products changing the way health care is delivered, to interviews with leading researchers and clinicians, to profiles of patient advocacy organizations, RWHC has provided valuable insights and information to those interested in both the current state and the future of health care.

New Blog Series.  Real World Health Care will continue to support HealthWell’s mission in 2019 with a focus on two issues of concern to Americans: the increasingly common liver disease, Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH), and the special needs of family-and-friend caregivers taking care of loved ones with chronic diseases such as cancer, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s, heart failure and migraines. We’ll offer insights on programs and initiatives from individuals and organizations dedicated to supporting patients and their caregivers and to improving health outcomes.

Our new series follows on the heels of recent series topics including:

  • Multiple Myeloma
  • Pain Management
  • Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
  • Melanoma
