About Health Literacy In the U.S., an individual's ability to understand and act on medical instructions and information - "health literacy" is a stronger predictor of health status than age, income, employment, education, race, or ethnicity. Studies reveal gaps between the way health information is presented and the ability of most Americans to understand and act on their health care. Low health literacy puts consumers at risk: people with poor health literacy remain in the hospital more days per admission, have increased ER and more doctor visits, and even earlier deaths.
About HLI Knowing that "literacy" is the single most important indicator of a health outcome, Health Literacy Innovations (HLI), creates tools to help eliminate medical mistakes and confusion due to low health literacy. HLI's flagship product, the Health Literacy Advisor (HLA), is the nation's only interactive health literacy software tool. A simple add-in to Microsoft Word, the HLA is revolutionizing a labor-intensive review process to help communicators evaluate, standardize, and produce clear health information. Built with readability indices in both English and Spanish, an interactive search-and-replace function that offers plain language options for difficult-to-understand terms, the REDA, a usability tool, and other features, the HLA is the most comprehensive health literacy tool on the market today.
