Health Literacy and Plain Language Resource Guide

Guide aims to help improve outcomes and lower costs

Many health care providers are becoming increasingly aware of the issue and challenge of low health literacy – their patients cannot read, understand or act on health information and instructions. It is a problem that leads to poor medical outcomes for millions of Americans.

That's why Keystone First, a leader in publicly insured health care, in partnership with Health Literacy Innovations (HLI), a social entrepreneurship company that creates tools in health literacy, developed the nation's first comprehensive guide on health literacy, the Health Literacy & Plain Language Resource Guide (PDF).

Gleaned from hundreds of national and international resources, this new free guide brings together health literacy resources that health providers and educators need.
