Adult Health Care Coordination connect our Community Care Coordinators (Community Health Workers) with patients from primary care practices and others who are referred from Medicaid health plans. The Coordinators complete a social and medical access assessment to identify the needs of patients in meeting chronic disease self-management goals as well as finding resources to eliminate barriers to regular and timely medical care. Barriers include unstable housing, transportation for medical and other routine appointments; reviewing medications to ensure clients are following their doctor’s current medication plan. We work closely with doctors, practice managers and clinical care coordinators. Connecting clients to mental health services has become even more important. HCAN maintains an active network and connections with community services to ensure that clients will not experience delays in getting appropriate care.
HCAN’s goal is to ensure that every woman who enrolls with our network of community providers will have a healthy pregnancy, delivery and continues access to ongoing medical care. The Pregnancy Care Coordination service enrolls women referred by Medicaid health plans, physicians, United Way 211 and self-referrals. Each woman is connected with a Community Care Coordinator (Community Health Worker) who provides important education about breastfeeding, safe sleep and assists with smoking cessation resources. Referrals for follow-up and treatment of maternal depression are also addressed. Our goal is to connect with women during their first trimester to be sure they receive as much prenatal care as possible. Our particular focus is to connect with as many African American women as possible to prevent infant deaths during the first year of life.
