I’m Trisha Torrey, and since 2004 when I first became immersed in the American healthcare system, its possibilities, and its dysfunction, I have called myself Every Patient’s Advocate.
That was a long time ago! And I’ll admit that for the 54 years of my life before then, it never occurred to me I would become an expert on helping people get the great healthcare they deserve.
But then life happened, my world came crashing down – and here I am to tell the tale. I have spent these last many years using that world-crashing experience as my impetus to help YOU.
You may be here for one of two reasons:
- You are a patient or caregiver who has realized the system isn’t set up to help you, and that you need to take command of your own care and outcomes.
- You are a an independent patient or health advocate / navigator / care or case manager who wishes to help patients find the best from the system, even in the face of daunting hurdles it too easy creates.
If you’re any of those folks, you’ve come to the right place! You’ll find access to my books, articles, blog posts, resume, news, and the many projects I’ve been involved in since 2004.
I welcome you to my site and invite you to roam around to see what you see.
Then, if you have a question, email me and we’ll see what we can accomplish from there.
