Patient Navigation Program

Dedicated Patient Care from Thibodaux Regional Cancer Institute

When faced with a cancer diagnosis you may have many questions and concerns about your health. You also may need help getting the care you need. Our Patient Navigation Program is a patient support service in which patients are guided through the cancer care system. Often, patients face gaps in service as well as fragmented care. At Thibodaux Regional Cancer Institute, the Patient Navigator works to get rid of those barriers to help patients get the care they need. The Navigator works to make sure that all patients with positive pathology receive information and assistance to help them obtain a timely diagnosis, treatment (if necessary), and follow-up care.

The Patient Navigator can guide you through the health care system, help you find ways to assist with payment for medications, direct you to health care services for further diagnosis and treatment, direct you to local resources and support, help you keep track of and find ways to get to your appointments, help you get your questions answered, and help you find more information on health care.

The Patient Navigation Program will benefit you through improved and timely access to health care services and information, fewer delayed and missed appointments, and increased satisfaction with your healthcare experience.
