Friends and colleagues call me Karen the Social Worker. My podcast dives into the follies of navigating the healthcare system. I have 20 years of experience as a medical social worker and close to 10 years as a Certified Health Care Ethicist.

Healthcare beats air travel as the #1, most complex industry in America. Let me offer a partial list of moving forces: hospitals, offices, insurance market, benefits, Affordable Care Act, levels of care, options, networks, FMLA, prescriptions, ancillary services, billing, government regulations, HIPAA, labs, disability, Medicare/Medicaid, treatment options, care plans, tests, rehab, medical records, specialties, equipment, supplies, patient rights, law, et al., — could there be any more parts?

I know the system inside and out (even doctors and nurses consult me). Tune in for information, resources, and tools that will make traversing the system easier. I am your guide through the fog.

Team Patient Podcast will also interest multidisciplinary healthcare workers. Expect to gain useful insight that expands your view from any seat inside the system whirlwind.

Learn the scope and intricacies of healthcare to clear the view and strengthen skills to advocate for patients — Team Patient! 🤗

Karen has a Masters in Social Work (MSW), a graduate certificate in Healthcare Ethics, and a clinical social work license (LCSW).

Note: I’m available for private consultations (hourly fee applies). Email or text me to inquire.
