St. Thomas Health Services Fund is rooted in the loving ministry of Jesus as healer.  The mission of the Fund is to advance the caring ministry and medical excellence of Saint Thomas Health Services by providing funds for research, education and charity programs.  STHS is committed to serving all persons, with special attention to those who are poor and vulnerable.    80% of patients who are referred through MyHealthDirect (approximately 400 out of 500) will report good to excellent satisfaction with the care coordination received through Baptist Hospital and their new Medical Home. The grant requested in this application will be used to fund MyHealthDirect software and services.  80% of patients who are referred through MyHealthDirect (approximately 400 out of 500) report improved access to care and that they continue to go back to their medical home for their medical condition. The Baptist Hospital Emergency Department reports a reduction (approximately 850 encounters that are repeat patients) out of the total of 4,231 non-emergent patient encounters at the ED over 12 months. This reflects former non-emergent patients receiving medical care from MyDirectHealth providers.
