Norte de Texas

Supported by HealthTexas Provider Network (HTPN) and Baylor Scott & White Health, the community care program designs, implements and operates innovative strategies that increase access to health services, provide quality care and improve health outcomes for medically underserved populations. The community care strategy includes a network of HTPN-operated or managed primary care clinics and supporting programs which target underserved patients from the community and hospitals following discharge. Today, we operate nine community care clinics across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, including:

Más de 14 médicos equivalentes a tiempo completo (FTE) y profesionales de enfermería proporcionan atención a casi 8,500 pacientes desatendidos en estos lugares. Siete de las nueve clínicas han logrado la Certificación del Comité Nacional para la Aseguramiento de la Calidad como un Hogar Médico Centrado en el Paciente y todas las prácticas de atención comunitaria participan en los esfuerzos de mejora de la calidad de los HTPNs en torno a los servicios preventivos de salud,

By implementing innovative support programs for patients and providers, our community care program achieves quality outcomes and improves care coordination within underserved populations. A team of community care navigators (specially trained community health workers) are located at four hospital campuses and work to ensure patients successfully transition from hospital to medical home. Another group of trained community health workers, known as diabetes health promoters, provide one-on-one diabetes education to uninsured persons with diabetes who have historically had difficulty accessing educational services.
