Mammogram to Medical Home Program
Increasing Access to Care
Introducing our new program to reach women who need access to care. Designed for women who do not have a doctor, and have noticed something different in their body.
Eliminating Another Barrier to Care
Approximately 1,500 women per year call The Rose seeking a mammogram, but do not have a referring physician. Mammograms cannot be performed without an order. To eliminate that barrier, The Rose created a program, Mammogram to Medical Home, in which a nurse practitioner (NP) provides medical case management to uninsured women without a medical home to increase access to care. The process starts with outreach to medically underserved communities, continues through breast cancer services and ends with the patient enrolled in a medical home.
