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.
