Currently at Health Network
This week, Health Network associate Damiana Villa is following up with the health department in Orange County, New York to make sure a patient that has Tuberculosis as well being HIV positive continues his medication for HIV. This service is to ensure a patient of Health Network continues treatment and is taking the right medication.
How do you assure continuity of care to a patient who is never sure where or when the next move is going to happen?
Health Network has the answer...
Health Network assures continuity of care and treatment completion by providing comprehensive case management, medical records transfer and follow up services for mobile patients. As rapid travel and ease of mobility make it possible to arrive anywhere in the world in a matter of hours and as shifting economic conditions require individuals and families to move in order to stay employed, Health Network has proven to be an easily modifiable patient navigation system with application in disease surveillance and treatment management for any number of injuries, illnesses or care needs among mobile populations.
“Health Network is a must for all of our diabetic patients, people with tuberculosis, our prenatal patients and anyone we screen for
cancer. In the past we would have put off doing a mammogram for a woman we knew would be traveling soon, but since the advent of Health Network we know that we will be able to find the patient and get her in care if necessary.” -- Carolyn Davis, Beaufort Jasper Hampton Comprehensive Health Services, Inc. in South Carolina
“…the help from Health Network was all I had, I don’t know honestly what I would have done without it” -- Health Network prenatal patient

That’s it…we will take it from there. If your patient moves, Health Network staff will contact the patient to assist him or her with locating a health center in his/her new area, and, if necessary, assist with scheduling an appointment for the patient. Medical records will be transferred, gathered as a result of that follow-up, and forwarded back to the enrolling clinic. Health Network is also a great tool for establishing a patient-centered medical home.
