Thank you SFCCC partner Care Teams

As SFCCC celebrates its 30th Anniversary, we want to extend a big thank you to the people that have made this anniversary possible. Specifically we want to thank the SFCCC partner organization Care Teams that are building around the city providing high quality culturally sensitive patient centered health care to all the people they serve.

Here’s to the front office staff presenting the first point of contact for patients, in a friendly and caring manner, and managing issues such as scheduling, eligibility and in some cases even preventive care reminder calls.

Shout out to the Medical Assistants, Patient Care Coordinators, Chronic Care Coordinators, Panel Managers, and Health Coaches, supporting patients as they perform pre-visit agenda setting, post visit closing the loop, health education, chronic disease care outreach, and of course coaching patients in learning to take better care of themselves..

Kudos to the incredibly talented Nurses, providing health education, medication reconciliation, and chronic care management, such as working with patients to manage their conditions  using protocol driven medication adjustments.

Congratulations to the providers, for delivering top-notch medical care to complex populations and learning to do so as partners on effective teams (not something that we providers were trained to do).

And of course thank you, muchas gracias, 谢谢, and maraming salamat to the members of the extended team: the behaviorists, the pharmacists, the social workers, the promotoras, the volunteers and many others.

SFCCC thanks you all for elevating the health and health care of vulnerable populations throughout our city, as well as that of other community residents in your neighborhoods.
