HI&PAA Services

Patient Advocacy

Advocates support and promote the rights of the patient in the health care arena, help build capacity to improve community health and enhance health policy initiatives focused on available, safe and quality care.


Health advocates are best suited to address the challenge of patient-centered care in our complex healthcare system.

Health Information Management

Health information management professionals plan information systems, develop health policy, and identify current and future information needs.


In addition, they may apply the science of informatics to the collection, storage, analysis, use, and transmission of information to meet legal, professional, ethical and administrative records-keeping requirements of health care delivery.


They work with clinical, epidemiological, demographic, financial, reference, and coded healthcare data.

Elaine has helped immeasurably when it comes to knowing the score in our healthcare.
We had so many questions about what we would need to do for our elderly mother. Elaine helped us to sort out the right treatment and ensure that the records were available and accurate.
