HEALTHTANK

IMPROVING OUTCOMES THROUGH EDUCATION

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HealthTank creates engaging learning tools to promote informed health choices. 

We produce health-related card decks that address a range of conditions and can be customized

to address the needs of your target audience. Our decks are available for organizational initiatives,

retail sales, and educational outreach events.

 

WHY IS EDUCATION USEFUL IN THE CONTEXT OF HEALTH?

Informed Patients Ask More Questions

67% of patients who feel informed about their health say they are more comfortable asking their provider questions. Among those who are less informed, comfort asking questions drops by half, to 33%.*

Informed Patients Make Better Decisions

Nearly 7 in 10 of those who feel very informed were comfortable making decisions about their health. Strong confidence in this regard falls to 44% among patients that feel less than well-informed.*

Informed Patients Are More Involved

Involvement in care is 19 points higher among those who feel confident in making healthcare decisions, than among those who feel less confidence; 81 percent vs. 62 percent.*
