Crossroads 4 Hope

Crossroads 4 Hope (CR4H)

CR4H seeks to develop a  new "previvor" track and translations of 12 other tracks in MyGo2Support(MG2S), our web-based tool to support individuals through a health crisis. We are working to transform the cancer experience for all those affected by the disease by leveraging our expertise in psychosocial support and patient activation with innovative technology and strong community partnerships. MG2S delivers texts to a mobile device with personalized tips and information specific to a journey and needs. The "previvor" track will be a point of entry for people, particularly those in vulnerable communities, and empower individuals with information about screenings, healthy living, and medical support to address major barriers to care. As determined in our needs assessment, offering translations of our messages in MG2S will encourage entry into our program and increase health outcomes.

IDSA Education and Research Foundation

IDSA Education and Research Foundation

Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) Foundation is upgrading the IDSA Practice Guidelines free application (app) for physicians, clinicians, pharmacists, healthcare professionals, and the public to provide fast, easy access to medical diagnostic treatment including treatment protocols and medication dosages containing IDSA clinical practice guidelines. This free innovative app is available as a healthcare resource that does not require a cellular or Wi-Fi signal to be used for healthcare professionals worldwide with over 100,000 downloads of the app. Many hospitals do not have strong Wi-Fi signals (or any signal). More tools are included within the app to help with treatment dosing. The app downloads new updates each time it connects to a cellular or Wi-Fi signal to stay updated. Current guidelines include COVID-19 treatments & management,

infection prevention, diagnostics for molecular and antigen testing and serology, sepsis, surgical infections, IV catheter, staff & other infectious diseases.

Lindquist Dental Clinic for Children

Lindquist Dental Clinic for Children

Founded in 1936, Lindquist Dental Clinic for Children (LDCC) is a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to fulfilling our mission to "Provide accessible, compassionate, and effective dental care to Puget Sound children in need," ages 0-20. From our organization's start, we have held firmly to the belief that "No child is turned away due to their family's inability to pay."

LDCC seeks increased operational efficiency and improved patient safety. We are transitioning away from traditional wall-mounted X-ray equipment and antiquated inmouth Phosphor Plates.  LDCC is transitioning to hand-held mobile X-ray devices called, "NOMAD Pro 2 Mobile X-ray Systems," which will work with in-mouth Digital Sensors. These cutting-edge technology tools will replace the old wall-mounted X-ray equipment & in-mouth Phosphor Plates. A powerful CPU with a hard drive & USB ports is required in each operatory, w/ an intra-oral digital sensor. Each sensor will connect to a USB port on a CPU. The desired X-ray exam type is selected at the CPU and radiographic images are digitally displayed immediately after acquisition by the operator.

Magic Tooth Bus

Magic Tooth Bus

The mission of Magic Tooth Bus (MTB), a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded in 2017, is to provide accessible dental care and education to low income communities in San Francisco. We envision a world free of dental disease. Our values are centered on equity, accessibility, and community.  MTB works to carry out the mission by providing oral health presentations and workshops; outreach services such as assisting with oral health enrollment and providing resources for care; brushing and flossing demonstrations; and is in the process of commencing mobile oral health screenings and preventative services.  The ITHC grant allocates funds towards creating and building a learning portal for our partners - a Train the Trainers program

Servant Harts

Servant Harts

Through healing, building, and educating, Servant Harts exists to provide high quality care to malnourished babies and pregnant women in and around San Lorenzo, El Tejar Guatemala.  The grant purchased a license for a electronic medical record system along with Ipads, router and internet for our clinic.

Hope Institute for Uganda

Hope Institute for Uganda

A grant to support the implementation of electronic medical records system: buy computers- desk top and lap tops and and put in electronic medical records. The culture of keeping records is not practiced widely in our partner communities.  That means that this project will be transformational because one can now study trends of patient characterizes and symptoms. It will be easier to educate patients and to offer care that meets quality standards and now we can standardize care across sites.  Patients will also be more involved in their care since most people in Africa have a cell phone which has made care easier to offer and it will also make communication easy.

St. Bonaventure Univ DePerro School of Health Professions

DePerro School of Health Professions is in the application of a new and existing healthcare technology to(1) educate a multifaceted array of health professions at St.Bonaventure University, and, (2) to solve the problem of patient access through the education of healthcare professionals. In addition, since this request is for equipment that is by its nature a hands on active learning system, student problem solving sets, content review and examination modalities for medical education is accomplished. In addition, since our programs are Interdisciplinary, students from Physician Assistant Studies,Nursing and Occupational Therapy work together in teams as a component of problem based learning and interdisciplinary team socialization. 

The objective of the grant would be to purchase an additional Anatomage table for our Simulated Cadaver Lab. The AnatomageTable is a technologically advanced anatomy visualization system]. It is both a virtual library of human and animal cadavers, as well as a clinical diagnostic tool which uses visualization of a combination ofMedical CT, CBCT or MRI scan. It replaces the need for human cadavers in medical and health professions education.
