Through patient data and Community Health Assessments, Tyson and his team listen to the needs of our patients and neighbors and find creative approaches to close gaps in care.
“It’s not just clinical care, but so many surrounding factors that influence health outcomes. Many people in our communities are making difficult decisions between putting food on the table or filling their medications. If we can address their basic issues around food, housing and education, we can help them live healthier lives.”
One recent example of his team’s work was the mobile vaccination program, which administered hundreds of doses of COVID-19 vaccines directly into our communities. Team members made phone calls, signed people up in carpool lines and visited local production plants.
“We’re data-driven and outcomes oriented. When we identify a need, we analyze how many patients live in a certain high-risk zip code and then engage whole neighborhoods in our local events. By collaborating with nearby churches, clinics, school districts, etc., we make an even bigger impact in ways most meaningful to that community.”
