Key Points

  • Health literacy is basic to quality, safety, and equity in health care.
  • To improve health literacy, we need to change how people and organizations behave. And we need to embed and spread those changes in the system.
  • This book is laid out according to areas UnityPoint Health found useful in its health literacy work as they relate to the attributes of a health literate health care organization.
  • Use this as a guide, rather than a step-by-step manual. Begin where it makes sense to you and your organization, and move from there.
