Abstract

This project is an extension of the Affordable Care Act, in that it identifies individuals who lack access to care- to be screened, risk stratified, and be given tools to link them to services. The aim of this project is to increase the usage of primary prevention services amongst previously uninsured or insured individuals in the urban Los Angeles area. This can also be used as a learning tool so that students, especially in the Healthcare field, are able to create care plans and monitor patients across all aspects of health. The web-based patient registry will primarily serve as a “Patient Health Profile (PHP) for patients screened by Mount Saint Mary’s University nursing students. The care plan provides details on ways to improve upon or maintain health. Data is collected from Family Planning Association’s clinic located in the greater Los Angeles area. Here, Passport to Wellness, wellness plans (using ePSS), and survey tools like (Patient Health Questionnaire, Trauma History Questionnaire, and Hospital Anxiety & Depression Scales) are handed out. Responses is used to beta test the web-based patient registry. It should be able to highlight aspects of an individual’s background that requires attention. For example, the survey tools are able to assess an individual’s access to health care, dental care, financial wellness, physical and psychological state. All of which not only measures all aspects of wellness, but also yields to recommended physical examinations, links to services, and prevention care plans. Based upon the data collected thus far, individuals in the urban Los Angeles area not only lack access to care, but are also unaware of the variety of services that the government has to offer- like Medicare or Medicaid. Many also neglect that primary prevention is an upstream approach that lowers each patient’s risk for complications. Success in this project is measured when patients who attend the clinic are able to be discharged with preventive health care management plans. By making this software more available, especially in low-income communities, the health of the patient population can be promptly evaluated and therefore improved.
