GUIA: The U.S. healthcare system can be difficult to navigate, even for those with no impediments to access. The people we serve, however, are usually unfamiliar with how the system works, and have additional barriers such as language, transportation, and poor health literacy. Our Guides for Understanding, Information & Access program helps by providing case management for patients who are referred to our collaborative partners for care. This includes appointment setting, accompanying patients to their appointments, and helping them obtain financial assistance. It also encompasses our home health efforts, providing care in the homes of our patients that have uncontrolled diabetes and/or hypertension.

  • Referrals to other health care facilities
  • Navigation (accompaniment) to appointments at other health care facilities
