How will the future of medicine impact patients, physicians and our health systems? Real World Health Care interviews the researchers on the forefront of medical breakthroughs about how their discoveries could improve health care delivery and quality of life as well as reduce costs. It is also a repository for good news about proven health care solutions. The views of the experts we interview and publish do not necessarily reflect the views of the Real World Health Care staff or its sponsors.
Funded by the HealthWell Foundation, a safety net for underinsured patients that provides access to life-changing medical treatments they otherwise would not be able to afford, the blog publishes weekly (or more frequent) stories created to drive the discussion toward solutions in healthcare delivery.
A nationally recognized charity founded in 2003, HealthWell provides financial assistance to adults and children facing medical hardship resulting from gaps in their insurance that cause out-of-pocket medical expenses to escalate rapidly. HealthWell helps underinsured patients by covering the cost of prescription drug copayments, deductibles, and health insurance premiums.
Since 2004, the HealthWell Foundation has assisted more than 175,000 insured patients with chronic and life-altering illnesses in meeting their cost-sharing obligations for treatment.
