Your Guide to More Informed Hospital Care:
Hospital Consumer Guide Forums a Success

The Executive and Provider Forums held in late January along with February's Train the Trainer Sessions proved to be a huge success.  To date, over 5,100 Guides to More Informed Hospital Care have been distributed.  Gaye Fortner, Vice President of Operations, Healthcare 21 Business Coalition facilitated all five well-attended sessions.  A total of 95 executives and providers attended the Forums, while an overwhelming 110 community liaisons attended the Train the Trainer Sessions.  The liaisons included industrial nurses, human resource/employee benefit representatives, and office managers of local employers.  "We recently distributed the Guides to More Informed Hospital Care to our 1,700 employees.  The guides, presented in a non-bias manner, provide a very valuable resource to our employees and to me, personally," said Dr. Lynn Murphy of Whitfield County Schools.  The guides can be distributed at employee meetings, health fairs, open enrollment, employee orientation, or mailed to an employee's home with a letter.
