Patient Navigation

Significant barriers are a major cause of low cancer screening rates and follow up on abnormal results among medically underserved Asian Americans. In response to this critical community need, CAH developed and implemented a patient navigation assistance program that helps undeserved and uninsured patients access to a spectrum of cancer care process and procedures from cancer prevention, screening, abnormality follow up diagnosis tests and treatment. The patient navigation assistance program has been beneficial to patients with suspicious findings accessing into the healthcare system and overcoming barriers to get timely care.

To date, CAH has provided navigation assistance to 6050 Asian community participants in our various intervention programs.
