Will Consumers Understand Health Exchanges? Health Literacy Innovations Discounts Its Health Literacy Software to Help

Bethesda, Maryland (PRWEB) June 21, 2013

With no federal mandate for a specific reading level for consumer health information, health exchanges and contracting providers will be able to market and communicate this information at any reading level, including a college grade reading level. Research, however, reveals that many Americans can only read at a 6th grade reading level, which may make the new exchanges and their information, difficult, if not impossible, to use, understand, and act on.

To help ensure that consumers can understand exchange information, Health Literacy Innovations (HLI), a company that creates tools to eliminate confusion from low health literacy, today announces a Health Exchange Sale of its flagship product, the Health Literacy Advisor (HLA). Until October 1st, the HLA will be available to health exchanges and their contracting providers (new HLA users) at a discounted price.

We recognize that many Americans new to the health care system will rely on the exchanges and providers to explain consumer health information, says Aracely Rosales, chief content expert and multi-language director, Health Literacy Innovations. As a simple tool to help streamline this process explain health exchange informationwhat they are, what they offer, how they work we know the HLA will be a great asset in the health exchange roll-out and to help consumers engage in their health care, says Rosales.
