We all depend on healthcare throughout our lifetimes, for ourselves, and our families and friends, but it is notoriously difficult to navigate and understand. As an industry that comprises 20% of the US economy we think healthcare should work better for all of us. At Collective Health we believe it’s time for a new day in healthcare where as members we are informed and empowered to make the right care choices when the decisions are urgent and critical.

At Collective Health, Care Navigation is crucial in helping people get the right support at the right time across a wide range of complex health needs. Care Navigation is a comprehensive care management program comprising our team of pharmacists, social workers, nurses, dietitians, and care coordinators who support people dealing with chronic or serious illnesses by guiding them on their journey to help them understand and navigate the disjointed U.S. healthcare system.
