Home Visitation Program - Ben Archer Health Center

Program Location: 
Las Cruces, NM
Payer Type: 

The Ben Archer Health Center in southern New Mexico is receiving a CMS Health Care Innovation Award to implement an innovative home visitation program for individuals diagnosed with chronic disease, persons at risk of developing diabetes, vulnerable seniors, and homebound individuals, as well as young children and hard to reach county residents. Ben Archer provides primary health and dental care to rural Dona Ana County, a medically underserved area and health professional shortage area. The program will use nurse health educators and community health workers to bridge the gap between patients and medical providers, aid patient navigation of the health care system, and offer services including case management, medication management, chronic disease management, preventive care, home safety assessments, and health education, thereby preventing the onset and progression of diseases and reducing complications.
