RHP12 DSRIP in Action- - Lynn County Hospital District, Tahoka, TX- Patient Care Navigation -Recap

Lynn County Hospital District along with Regional Healthcare Partnership 12 hosted a DSRIP in Action event Friday, June 16, 2017. Twenty six attendees representing 13 different regional provider locations joined us for the event.

Donna Raindl, Controller/Compliance Officer, and Pete Paniagua, Patient Navigator/Financial Assistance presented their Patient Care Navigation project which was implemented to improve Lynn County Hospital District’s (LCHD) ability to reduce non-emergent ER visits and to provide low- income, high risk patients with quality health care at lower cost to patients. To launch this project, LCHD hired a Patient Navigator to oversee the Indigent/Charity Program full time. The patient navigator attempts to reach 100% of the MLIU patients that present thru the ER. The Patient Navigator has established a valuable network with Texas Workforce Commission, Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services, South Plains Community Action, SSI/SSDI Disability Advocates/Attorneys, and other Social Service Agencies which assist him in connecting their patients to the resources needed. Since program inception 733 clients have received services from this program. Currently they have 131 active clients enrolled.
