Putting Patients First
Putting Patients First was an innovative and informative project from the National Health Council to connect people living with chronic diseases to the resources and organizations that are focused on and committed to their particular needs. The aim was to create a friendly and responsive website where anyone could easily explore and learn about their health care options.
Estimate My Costs
The "Estimate My Costs" interactive tool allows the viewer to input their annual predicted medical needs. Their specific information generates a customized cost report that explains how much coverage each health care plan would offer.
Explore My Options
This section provides six patient profiles and their respective considerations that impact the selection of a health insurance plan. The viewer can see examples of how different events affect out of pocket costs depending on health care coverage.
Share My Story
The site includes a form that visitors use to share the details of their experience with the health care marketplace. This functionality provides a simple way of capturing first-hand patient accounts in regards to health care coverage decisions.
