The number of patients registered at the Orange County Free Clinic has risen from 86 at the end of 2007 to currently more than 2,300. New patients are being registered each week. The majority of patients seen by our nurse practitioner live in households at or below 200% of the federal poverty level – leaving them with few options for affordable access to medical care. Therefore, the role of the Orange County Free Clinic as a health safety net is important.
The two most diagnosed conditions at the Orange County Free Clinic are hypertension and diabetes. Many of our patients have a medical condition(s) existing simultaneously with another condition. A number of our chronically ill patients are on five or more mediations, and therefore require proper poly pharmaceutical management. Only through our Chronic Patient Care Management Program can we provide the level of service needed to improve outcomes, support wellness, and enhance quality of life among these patients. Careful attention to avoiding drug interactions, limiting unnecessary medications and providing the most appropriate treatment plan will lead to optimal outcomes for our patients, but this all requires adequate funding.
