The Troup Cares Free Clinic provides a large range of services to our patients. Many are listed below however our degree of dedication and range of services change on what appears to be a daily basis.
- Medical Home --- Each of our patients now have what they have never previously had; a Medical Home. This is something that we at the clinic are most proud. Our patients now come to the Troup Cares Free Clinic at the onset of medical issues and are able in most cases to correct them at that time. This eliminates costly trips to the Emergency Room and potential hospital admissions. Our patients know that we care for their well being.
- Care Management / Patient Education --- The Troup Cares Free Clinic Care Management program is outstanding. Our full time Care Manager / Registered Nurse is able to work with each patient and outline an individual program of care for each. What a wonderful product to have in place for our patient population. The Care Management Program covers everything from proper diet, proper prescription drug usage, how to refill prescriptions at the proper time along with a never ending list of daily issues that never seem to stop. We have also established a Patient / Clinic Responsibility document for review with each new patient as they arrive at the clinic for their initial visit. Our nurse practitioner is available each day to see patients and work within the care management framework thus providing the best medical care and management possible.
- Prescription Assistance Plan (PAP) --- We at the Troup Cares Free Clinic have in place solid assistance within this arena. Our Care Manager (s) work with each patient where necessary to help them obtain much needed and in many cases expensive pharmaceutical drugs from the various suppliers and governmental agencies. Our team monitors prescription drug usage and timing for resupply to make sure that our patients have adequate medication on an ongoing basis.
- Specialists for Appropriate Medical Referrals --- What a wonderful opportunity we have for our patients. Our33 volunteer referral practitioners provide specialty referral services on an ongoing basis. We are truly blessed to have the opportunity to call on this group on an as needed basis. Our specialist group includes:
- Oral Surgery
- Primary Care
- Physical Therapy
Standard Social Services --- Our staff has access to many Social Services that are not necessarily in the normal flow of clinic operations. We are more than happy and willing to direct our patients to areas for additional assistance in areas of non-medical programming.
