Mobile Health Collaborative
The Mobile Health Collaborative held its second event on October 20 at Whitney Park. More than 200 families were provided with services that included primary care, behavioral health and addiction information, immunizations, dental and vision screenings, Medicaid enrollment assistance, and housing information. Partners included Health Plan of Nevada, Touro University, Three Square, UNLV, Mexican Consulate/Ventanillas de Salud, and Dignity Health.
The Collaborative is a direct result of the Community Health Improvement Plan’s Access to Healthcare priority group, a key piece of the accreditation process. Its goal is to link clients to a cross-section of public services. The Collaborative’s first event was held in March and connected 156 families with services. This type of direct interaction provides clients with real-time assistance as well as follow-up services after the event.
