Five Rivers Health Center
Five Rivers Health Center in Dayton, Ohio will be implementing a Flu/FOBT project with the assistance of Account Representative, Andrea Anderson. The project will involve distributing FOBT cards when eligible patients visit the centers for their flu shots. Andrea will be serving on the planning committee, and as a technical advisor during implementation of the project this fall. Should the project be successful, the center hopes to sustain for future years to ensure all eligible patients are adequately screening for colorectal cancer.
Our team:
Primary Care Health Services in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania will be partnering with Account Representative, Jason Simonson, to bring Health Card Kits to 13 sites. These kits engage patients in clinical settings to encourage communication between the patient and the provider. The goal is to increase patient knowledge of appropriate screenings and the number of people being screened. Primary Care Health Services plans to implement these kits in their waiting rooms. Jason will assist PCHS in obtaining materials, and serve as a guide for successful integration of the kits at PCHS.
Primary Care Health Services
A Federally Qualified Health Center receives grants from Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act. All FQHCs must serve an underserved area or population, offer a sliding fee scale, and provide comprehensive services. FQHCs are found in both urban and rural communities.
What are populations of focus?
Communities or groups with higher disease incidence and/or mortality rates
Educational attainment
Insurance status
Geographic area
Population-focused healthcare uses a defined population for the organization of preventative action, and allows us to affect the health of an entire community.
What's our territory?
