Please take a look at the message below from Helene Epstein, a member of SIDM’s Patient Engagement Committee. A subgroup of that Committee has been working on and submitted suggestions to HHS for revisions to the definition of health literacy. 

Health literacy is a critical factor in improving diagnosis as well as improving HEALTH! You can play a role in this by suggesting a definition of health literacy that improves on the current one which has been used in Healthy People 2010 and Healthy People 2020: “Health literacy is the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information needed to make appropriate health decisions.”

Take a stab at it. Remember DEADLINE FOR COMMENTS IS TODAY! (Sorry for the late notice.)

It's essential to have one that promotes patient-centered care since the result will impact the future direction of healthcare. A sub-committee of the Patient Engagement Committee of SIDM (Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine) met to revise the HHS working definition since we felt it was insufficient. We're doing this as individual patient advocates, not as official spokespeople for SIDM.
