Northern Nevada HOPES
HOPES Breast Health Program
Each year, about 300 HOPES clients are unable to receive financial assistance for breast cancer screenings and/or diagnostic testing. These women are at risk of being diagnosed with late-stage breast cancer. The target population is uninsured/underinsured women ineligible for other assistance programs. The program’s goal is to increase breast cancer screening rates in our community. To do this, HOPES will identify clients in need of screenings and give them reminder calls/postcards. When a patient needing a screening has a clinic appointment, staff will provide them with a screening referral, and conduct care coordination to ensure referral completion. This includes appointment scheduling, reminder calls, transportation, and resource linkage. Some of the ways HOPES will measure success is obtaining a 75% referral completion rate, linking 100% of those with a breast cancer diagnosis to financial treatment options, and providing care coordination to 100% of participants.

Community Health Alliance
Hispanic Breast Health Program
The purpose of CHA’s Hispanic Breast Health Program is to improve access and provide outreach, one-on-one education, breast cancer screening, diagnostic services and treatment support in Washoe County to 300 unduplicated, low-income, uninsured or underinsured patients, the majority of whom are Hispanic. CHA will select patients for services who have no other source of care. The 2017 Uniform Data System report for CHA shows that 59% of our patients are of Hispanic/Latino ethnicity. By removing cost barriers through the use of a navigator, CHA expects to see fewer cases of later-stage diagnoses of breast cancer. Therefore, we expect to support the goal of fewer deaths due to breast cancer. CHA will provide breast cancer education, screening and diagnostic services, and patient navigation to 300 patients, 60% of whom will be Hispanic. We will track later-stage breast cancer rates using public data.
