When you’re sick or require medical attention, you need to be focused. But emotions and physical limitations can impede the ability of a patient or their family to understand and retain important details, such as instructions for surgical prep or aftercare, which can have a significant impact on a patient’s health outcomes. That’s why programs like the Rati-Fi Informed Consent and Patient education platform can have such a beneficial effect — patients and care givers can learn about their treatment options before their appointment and then can review the patient-doctor consult after . . . it takes a lot of the anxiety out of the process because it gives patients the time to absorb important information.
