Catholic Health/Bills Alumni/LHF   "Get on the Ball Health Screening"

What a great turn out and show of community participation event this was.  Catholic Health / Buffalo Bills Alumni / LHF got together for "Get on the Ball" Health Screening. It was very encouraging to see the community participation. Over 100 clients went thru the screening Process.

 

The stats:

·         810 health measurements were taken on 83 individuals. 13 screenings were offered. Overall, 32% of results were abnormal.

·         At least 5 guests were found to have semi-urgent conditions, and 1 was transported to the ER immediately.

·         5 guests without a PCP were referred to HealthConnection physician referral service, and 1 guest made an appointment on the spot.

·         100 guests got autographed photos with the NFL Alumni, and American Cancer Society and NYSDOH made several leads.

·         6 doctors and multiple clinical experts, techs, nurses and volunteers devoted their Saturday to this community event.

 

Participants experienced Catholic Health in one of the most aesthetically refined units in our system, while having a friendly, thorough experience.

 

Next steps: clinical areas will receive copies of patient results this week, and patient profiles and results will be sent to patient primary care physicians to become part of their medical record. All patients left with their results that day for their personal files (exception: PSA).

 

A special thanks to Fred Caso, who made sure we had access, space, materials and everything we needed for this event.
