Health Network ensures 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. Independent research on tuberculosis treatment has found that Health Network is highly cost effective.
Enrollment is free and must be initiated by the clinic. Patients cannot enroll themselves.
The 3 things required for enrollment are:
CONSENT FOR RELEASE OF MEDICAL INFORMATION section (signed and dated)
PARTICIPANT INFORMATION SHEET section (including the patient’s working phone number(s) and intended address)
Medical records and/or summary of next steps
Once we receive this paperwork, we will verify the information and initiate case management. It is critical that you fill this enrollment packet out as completely as possible so that MCN staff can provide the best possible service to you and your patients. We recommend enrolling patients in anticipation of their departure; having a patient enrolled ahead of time will enable us to direct that patient to their next clinic before the patient leaves your area. Only patients enrolled will be followed. Health Network has been designed to facilitate the continuity of care for these mobile patients, not only in the U.S., but around the world.
