Communication is key to healthy outcomes Navigating the health care system can be challenging. The terminology used to describe medical benefits and services is confusing to many of us. And even those with a good understanding of how the system works can run into unexpected hurdles when accessing care. Health literacy refers to our ability to receive, understand and communicate basic health information and services. These are all key ingredients to finding the right health care services, interacting with doctors and following their treatment recommendations. Only about 10 percent of U.S. adults have the skills needed to fully manage their health, prevent disease and fully understand and use our health care system. If people can't understand health information, they can't make appropriate health decisions. They may be less likely to receive timely, preventive care and more likely to require more costly hospital or emergency care as a result. Low health literacy is associated with: Increased hospitalization rates Longer hospital stays Higher readmission rates Increased emergency room use Medication errors Poor adherence with treatment plans Factors that may affect our personal health literacy include our age, education, cultural background and overall communication skills. And if we are sick or stressed, we might have a harder time understanding a doctor’s advice than if we’re healthy and feeling well. That’s why it’s so important to help everyone understand their health care options using clear language and simple examples, while stressing the importance of asking questions and talking openly with health care providers. Here are links to resources we’ve selected to help you spread the word about health literacy. We've chosen UnitedHealth Group’s Just Plain Clear glossary of health care terminology, health literacy information from the Health Resources and Services Administration, tips for patients on how to be more engaged in health care, and a video on asking questions for better communication with your doctor. Plus, we’ve picked healthy recipes for Vegetable Calzones, Baked Apples with Cherries and Almonds, and a 5 A Day Salad.

Cancer screenings still vital early diagnosis The COVID-19 pandemic caused many Americans to put off in-office doctor visits for routine and preventive health care services this past year. This was a vital safety measure to help avoid contracting or spreading the coronavirus, but experts say it is important to receive recommended screenings when and where they can be done safely. Delaying recommended cancer screenings, even for a matter of months, comes with its own risks. Screenings are meant to find cancer in its earliest stages, before it causes symptoms and when treatments may be more effective. Now cancers that may otherwise have been detected last year may be more advanced and more difficult to treat. Cases of COVID-19 are still present in our communities, despite the recent rise in vaccinations, but health care providers have worked diligently to reduce the risk of in-person office visits. For those who have put off or are due to receive a recommended cancer screening, such as a mammogram, colorectal screening, PAP test or prostate exam, it might be time to speak with your doctor and see if it is safe to do so. For some cancers, there may even be screening options that can be done at home or virtually. Depending on the type of test and your risk factors, short delays may be OK. But for those with a history of cancer, any delay may be significant. So start by asking your doctor what options are available and what screening schedule may be right for you. In meantime, here are some additional tips we can take to reduce our personal risk for cancer: Quit tobacco in all its forms and limit alcohol use to two drinks a day for men or one drink a day for women Maintain a healthy weight by staying physically active and eating a healthy diet of plant-based foods Use sunscreen and avoid direct contact with the sun’s ultraviolet rays, the leading cause of skin cancer When it’s safe to do so, get vaccinated against the human papillomavirus (HPV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV), which are linked to cancer in humans Here are links to resources we’ve selected to help you spread the word about cancer screenings and prevention. We've chosen information on how to prevent cancer or find it early, cancer facts and tips on prevention, diet and fitness guidelines to prevent cancer, and 7 steps to prevent cancer. Plus, we’ve picked healthy recipes for eggplant delight, ravioli tomatoes, snapper on white beans, and tomato and basil frittata. Consider sharing these links with your employees as part of your health promotion activities this month.
