Patient Navigation - Financial Navigation


Patient Navigation
Patient navigation was founded and pioneered by Harold P. Freeman in 1990 for the purpose of eliminating barriers to timely cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment, and supportive care. Patient navigation has shown efficacy as a strategy to reduce cancer mortality and is currently being applied to reduce mortality in other chronic diseases.

Patient navigators provide one-on-one guidance to patients as they move through the health care system.
