EDUCATION AND SUPPORT FOR CHRONIC CONDITIONS

HealthFinders Collaborative aims to provide culturally appropriate education and support for adults and children who meet program guidelines and have chronic conditions — i.e. diabetes, hypertension, asthma. Through proper education, individuals can learn to manage their health condition and keep themselves in a good state of health, thereby avoiding complications resulting from poor management and avoiding hospitalizations.

Diabetes Program:
For more than two years, our Diabetic Program has provided monthly support, education, diabetic supplies and medications to diabetic patients. Participants must agree to attend monthly education sessions and track their blood sugar levels. Currently around 60 individuals receive necessary syringes, test-strips, glucometers, medication, lancets, and educational support through the diabetes program.

MEDICATION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

HealthFinders manages a prescription drug fund in partnership with local pharmacists, medical personnel, and public health officials to provide prescriptions to low-income, uninsured community members. The program uses a specific list of medications (formulary) from which physicians can prescribe; patients can obtain prescribed medications at one of the participating pharmacies in the Northfield, Faribault and Lonsdale communities.

The fund supports prescription medication for HealthFinders Clinic patients, as well as patients at area clinics and emergency departments who meet program guidelines. Physicians at primary care clinics in the area, as well as Faribault and Northfield hospital emergency departments, can access the program for patients in need.

Mission:
The mission of HealthFinders is to provide quality, accessible and culturally sensitive healthcare services at no cost, to low-income and uninsured residents of greater Rice County.
Results:
HealthFinders has served over 2,500 patients since 2005.

There are far too many people who don't have access to health care and HealthFinders helps remedy this, providing free health services to the uninsured and under-insured. HealthFinders has great outreach to deprived communities, even those that don't always speak English well, but that doesn't ... more »

My name is Rae and I volunteer as a nurse at the HealthFinders Clinic evenings. One particular evening a boy about 12 years old came in with his mother, for an athletic physical, required so he could be on a community soccer team. I enjoy joking with the children we see and this young man and I did ... more »
