With their private patient advocate services, Lamorinda Patient Advocacy provides Bay Area medical patients and their families with the support they need to navigate the complexities of the healthcare and insurance systems during treatment for serious and chronic health conditions.
With the help of a professional patient advocate, clients can better manage medical care for themselves or a loved one. Patient advocates can assist patients and their family members in dealing with a variety of complex conditions including chronic health issues and disabilities, cancer diagnoses, and problems related to aging, including Alzheimer’s or dementia.
Lamorinda Patient Advocacy offers clients many forms of communication, research, and logistical support. This support includes coordinating appointments, recording and reporting important information from doctors and hospital staff, and communicating with providers to answer questions about the patient’s condition.
The company can also research other caregiving options and find new providers using their expert knowledge of these aspects of the healthcare system. A patient advocate can help arrange appointments for second opinions and manage additional support services including caregiver agencies and assisted living facilities. A patient advocate can also help clients resolve issues with insurance billing, payments, and paperwork.
Lamorinda Patient Advocacy was founded by Scott Fraser, who became a board certified patient advocate in 2018 after training at UC Berkeley Extension’s Professional Program in Health Advocacy. He is a current member of national and regional professional organizations including the National Association of Healthcare Advocacy and Bay Area Health Care Advocates.
His experience caring for a family member during a difficult illness inspired him to use his experience to help others and pursue professional patient advocacy as a career.
Company founder Scott Fraser said: “While advocating and caring for my mother in 2015, I learned that people need help addressing the gaps in communication and coordination among healthcare providers and that the danger of missed diagnoses, other mix-ups, delays and medical errors are, unfortunately, far too common in healthcare.”
