Be MY patient advocate
Increasingly complex medical treatments and pressure on hospital budgets mean case management suffers.  People can literally die in hospital waiting for the right treatment.  Medication errors are causing harm and death. Patients (particular older patients) need help to make good decisions about their treatment and to keep doctors and medical staff accountable.  They need medically qualified advocates, trained in health advocacy, whose loyalty is to them and not to the hospital.  Evidence points to improved health outcomes and less costs to the health budget. With an aging population and more single people this idea has come of age.

An eye-drop that improves close range vision
An eye drop that improves close-range vision could make misplaced reading glasses less of an inconvenience. Vuity, which has became available by prescription, is a once-a-day treatment that can help users see up close without affecting their long-range vision.Vuity’s benefit over reading glasses is that it does not impair distance vision as reading glasses do. Usually, when a person stops reading to do something else, they need to remove their reading glasses to see around them properly.https://inkl.com/a/ZYvJaVTwlE
