What is “health literacy”?
Health literacy is a person’s ability to access vital health information, process and understand it. Ultimately they apply that information to making informed, positive health decisions. It’s so vital that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has published a Health Literacy Quick Guide Fact Sheet.
Health literacy includes:
Understanding preventative services covered by your health plan.
Knowing how – and why – to eat a balanced diet.
Learning about ways to improve sleep.
Being aware of work/life balance.
Discerning how to get enough exercise.
Realizing the importance of managing stress.
Only 12% of Americans have “proficient” health literacy skills. This includes understanding a table, or figuring out how much of their healthcare premiums they’re responsible for. The vast majority of Americans – 53% – only have intermediate skills. These are skills required to read a prescription bottle and figure out when to take a medication. Sadly, 21% just have basic skills required to read a pamphlet.
A large percentage of the population struggles with medical issues. This could be improved by better health literacy. For instance, many Americans:
Do not understand medical terms.
Don’t know how to measure risks to make positive health care choices.
Are trying to manage complicated diseases and don’t understand self-care.
Feel overwhelmed by conflicting information online.
Get confused by piles of paperwork from their health insurers.
Poor health literacy leads to poor health
Research shows poor health literacy leads to poor health. When you don’t understand healthcare available, which healthy behaviors to adopt, or how to take care of yourself, your health pays the price. People with poor health literacy are likely to:
- Experience chronic medical conditions — and have less understanding of how to manage them.
- Use emergency services and make preventable hospital visits, resulting in high healthcare costs.
- Skip annual exams, flu shots, and preventative care.
- Visit the doctor only after an illness or issue has progressed, resulting in a condition that’s advanced.
- Believe they’re less healthy than others, and feel embarrassed about their lack of health knowledge.
- Feel intimidated about seeking medical help.
The annual cost of low health literacy is estimated to be between $106 billion and $238 billion. A critical step in improving health literacy is providing clear information about health, wellness, and medical care. Better health communication improves wellness. It increases quality of healthcare. And reduces costs.
