Introducing iHOMES: Improving Health Outcomes and Medical Education for Sickle Cell - 443 717 2198 (ask for the Project Coordinator).
iHOMES, a federally sponsored grant program, aims to improve primary care access for patients with sickle cell disease. We are specifically targeting the following patients with sickle cell disease:
Adolescent pediatric patients who are ready or are getting ready to transition to an adult provider Patients (children or adults) who had a PCP at one time but have been lost to follow-up Patients who only follow up with a hematologist and do not have a PCP
Any patient with sickle cell who wants a new PCP
Our organization will help find primary care physicians for your patients with sickle cell disease. We have a project coordinator, Charlene Davis, who will work with your patients one-on-one. We also have community health workers who will work with the patients as well.
It's easy to find your patient a PCP for your patient with SCD. Just call 443-717-2198. The phone is on 24-hours a day, and she will answer during regular business hours. Please leave contact information for your patient. If you want her to let you know when she has scheduled the patient, then please leave your contact information as well.
We look forward to providing this service to your patients with sickle cell. Please call if you have any questions.
