Rachel Bardgett.Good Samaritan Health Services is a mobile medical unit that has been in operation for 20 years. The standard staff members include paid positions for a nurse, driver, and 2 providers for the daytime clinics with volunteer providers for our evening and weekend clinics. The sharp increase in the growth of our clinics and of more complex, complicated patients made clinic more challenging with only one nurse to handle everything from triage to order processing, and patient education. We have implemented a RN Case Management position to assist in increase in compliance, chronic disease management, and statics tracking.
Stephanie Garris.This session will describe how one charitable clinic that is overwhelmingly staffed by volunteer providers undertook an extensive quality improvement process for clinical care and improved rates of vaccinations and cancer screenings.

Many may not realize that there are approximately 1,300 free and charitable clinics across the country that help fill in the gaps for those who “fall through the cracks” of our current healthcare system. This session will present results from a recent national census survey of free and charitable clinics. The session will portray the free and charitable sector as a whole, describe trends over the past decade, compare free clinics and charitable clinics, and examine clinics in Medicaid expansion states and non-expansion states.
