Metro Community Provider Network Patient Navigators Connected Patients to more than 7,100 Community Resources in 2018
In 2018, Metro Community Provider Network (MCPN) doubled the size of its Patient Navigation program, expanding Cancer Screening Navigation and adding Prenatal Engagement Navigation to target specific populations. In total, Patient Navigators connected MCPN patients with more than 7,100 individual community resources.
“Patient Navigation in the healthcare system can greatly benefit quality outcomes and reduce barriers to care,” said Sophia Alires-Morgan, Director of Consumer Engagement. “For a number of years, MCPN’s Patient Navigation team has partnered with external agencies, such as the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, HealthLeads and the Patient Navigation Training Collaborative to build a Navigation program for our own patients. We are pleased to share the results from this data and are excited to see how the endless efforts of Navigation will provide awareness and education to each patient at MCPN.”
