The world is dealing with COVID-19 uniquely, but the most common initiatives include over 550,000 individuals are experiencing homelessness in the U.S. Unfortunately, many people who are homeless need medical treatment and never receive medical care due to barriers like lack of access to transportation and/or fear of formal medical facilities. A street medicine program in L.A. is on a mission to make a difference.
Street Medicine Programs, Nonprofits, Health Organizations
In order to efficiently, effectively and securely administer healthcare to select homeless communities, maintain communication with patients who are homeless and treat patients who cannot go to a physical location, street medicine programs need affordable, durable and manageable devices to distribute to approved street medicine program participants.
So far, this specific street medicine program has deployed around 60 out of 100 total devices to select patients who are homeless. The program is seeing increased treatment plan follow-through, patient trust and follow-up opportunities. The program plans to deploy over 500 devices by the end of the year.
