2019 Project YOU&I

Vision Screening Devices

Currently, most insurances will not reimburse for better forms of vision screenings for younger children. In IMG clinics, vision screenings with eye charts are provided reliably for kids ages 4 years and older. This project will provide access to photo-screening devices in each IMG family care and pediatric clinic to accurately test our youngest pediatric patients for vision disorders.

Impact: 1,000s of children

Arcadia Trails

Care Coordination

Community Care Coordination
This fund will allow the community care team to assist underserved South OKC patients by providing access to transportation, medication, basic living necessities and equipment to help these patients build a healthier lifestyle.

Impact: 120 patients / yr

Edmond

TeleSitters
When high, fall-risk patients need 24/7 monitoring, a family member or caregiver must be present 100% of the time. To improve these patients’ safety, this project will fund two mobile TeleSitters that provide state-of-the-art, remote bedside monitoring.

Impact: 300 patients / yr

Impact: 4,000+ kids & families / yr

Stroke

Indigent Stroke Care
