Health Literacy Advisor

Most patients would like to follow their healthcare instructions...if only they could understand them. Introducing the nation's first interactive health literacy software tool. A simple add-in to Microsoft Word, The Health Literacy Advisor is revolutionizing a traditionally antiquated, and labor intensive literacy review process with a powerful new software tool to help communicators evaluate, standardize, and produce clear health information. It is the nation's only and most powerful health literacy software tool.

As a "health literacy checker," The Health Literacy Advisor streamlines the review and simplification process by allowing users to assess the health of their documents and then fix it using plain language principles.
