Plain Language Resources and Examples
We create original communications using Plain Language and Health Literacy writing or we can modify your existing documents so that they are easy-to-read and present complex ideas in a clear way. In addition, we do readability and usability testing.
Our clients in the health care industry must provide their members with communications that are written in Plain Language and meet Medicaid and Medicare reading level requirements. Often our clients do not have the in-house resources or Health Literacy expertise to meet these goals.
From disease management to general health awareness campaigns — whether for print, audio or web-based usage — we deliver efficient, effective, high quality results, so you can deliver exceptional patient outcomes.
