How hospitals are using 'street medicine' to treat homeless
from Becker's Hospital Review
Hospitals nationwide continue to look for ways to reduce costs while providing quality care to patients. One tool that has worked for Allentown, Pa.-based Lehigh Valley Health Network is its street medicine program, which provides homeless individuals with basic primary care, according to The Washington Post. The program, led by physician assistant Brett Feldman, treats homeless patients living on the streets or in soup kitchens and shelters. According to the program website, this no-cost treatment includes medications, laboratory tests and diagnostic studies.
