“Health care is delivered in an extremely complex system that is often unpredictable and bewildering, especially for the uninitiated. Smarter Medical Care is an essential centralized educational resource for patients, families, and friends. Smarter Medical Care helps the anxious patient, under-informed family member and well-intentioned friend to prepare for, confront and cope with the many challenges associated with serious illness. Smarter Medical Care delivers the guidance that the clinician might defer at the hospital bedside or office appointment due to constraints of time. In a stressful situation like an episode of illness, experience alone can be a harsh teacher. For patients and those whom they love, Smarter Medical Care is a compassionate teacher, counselor, and coach, available on demand, to make the journey less of a jostle.”
