Who We Are
Founded by Terri Ann Parnell DNP, MA, RN, FAAN
Health Literacy Partners, LLC was founded to help organizations navigate the complexity of providing person-centered care and implement sustainable solutions that address health inequities, enhance effective communication, the patient experience, and patient safety. Our breadth of experience includes working with healthcare organizations, academia, industry, government, and advocates. We’ve been fortunate to collaborate on special projects such as Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP), Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH), value-based purchasing, community, and transitional care initiatives, patient education committee consultation, patient material oversight, vendor-related solutions, grants, and research.
How We Can Help
We offer a variety of health literacy and wellness services that are tailored to your organization’s specific needs and goals.
We help you navigate the complexities of health literacy and ensure all stakeholders see the positive impact it will have for staff, patients, and the community.
Wellness Consulting & Presentations
Dr. Parnell launched TAP Wellness Coaching as a complementary consulting service to Health Literacy Partners, to help organizations "care for their clinicians". Because when nurses feel happy, healthy, and satisfied with their jobs, the quality of care they provide improves. TAP was specifically created to address the unique challenges that are inherent to nurses and other healthcare professionals by providing a holistic approach to wellness that will help them thrive both as a healthcare professional and in their personal life.
Clinician well-being can impact many aspects of your healthcare organization. Nurses who report that their worksites support their well-being have improved mental and physical health outcomes. Employee satisfaction and well-being translates into improved patient satisfaction, patient safety and patient outcomes with a downstream impact on your organizations’ financial performance.
What Sets Us Apart
We not only talk the talk, we’ve walked the walk. We’re insiders who get it! We have decades of experience across a variety of roles in the healthcare industry including nursing, management, administration, and senior leadership.
