An effort to help residents find and utilize a Medical Home as an alternative to ER’s, as well as Quick Care Clinics for medical non-emergencies. Collectively we can reduce non-emergency visits to the ER's, lower healthcare costs, and benefit everyone.
- Getting care from a medical home decreases the costs of your care on average by 500%*• $18,000,000,000 could be saved per year, if a medical home is used instead of ER for care*
- When you have a medical home, care is higher quality and more accessible**
- 102,424 adults in Will County do not have a medical home
To help you spread the word, MAPP has developed a tool kit that contains print and website collateral for partners to use at their offices and on their own website. The toolkit is available for immediate download at willknowwheretogo.org.
