ACCESS II Medical Case Management and Care Coordination Program

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene launched their Ryan White Care Coordination programs in December 2009. Argus Community Inc. /ACCESS II Care Coordination Program provides an expanded form of HIV medical care coordination services for people living with HIV/AIDS. When you enroll in Care Coordination, you will have a whole team to provide support. A Care Coordinator will help you with your clinical needs and a Patient Navigator will help you in the community. The team will:

  • Help you learn to live better with HIV/AIDS
  • Help you with medical appointments
  • Help you manage your medications
  • Ensure that you are linked to care in a timely manner
  • Develop a patient-centered care plan that emphasizes continuous adherence to care and antiretroviral treatment
  • Coach (a form of active health promotion and counseling) you to become self-sufficient so that you can manage medical and social needs autonomously
