2014AnnualReportOperationAccess

  1. 1. 2014 ANNUAL REPORT With support from the community, we bring together medical professionals and hospitals to provide donated surgical and specialty care for the uninsured and underserved.
  2. 2. Operation Access was founded in 1993 as a coalition of partners, led by surgical professionals, dedicated to addressing barriers confronting low income, uninsured patients who needed ambulatory surgical services.To date, these services provided by thousands of clinical volunteers to over 10,000 patients are valued at greater than $120 million. With the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, this core commitment continues to energize and sustain our efforts. 2014 brought changes in the healthcare landscape as Medicaid expansion provided coverage to additional people living at the poverty level and Covered California delivered a marketplace for subsidized care. Despite the advances in insurance coverage, access to care is a work in progress for the remaining uninsured and underserved. For too many, insurance is still unaffordable, access issues persist despite expanded Medi-Cal coverage, and high- deductible plans often do not provide affordable coverage when surgical services are needed. Most significantly for Operation Access, several million low-income people statewide are excluded from Medi-Cal or affordable Covered California plans because of their immigration status. A variety of national, state, and local initiatives are being proposed to address these challenges. Operation Access works to bridge the healthcare gap by engaging our community of compassionate providers who have the skills and desire to donate essential care to those who lack other options. Community clinics depend on Operation Access and our coalition of hospitals, ambulatory care centers, and medical volunteers to fulfill this vital safety net role. In 2014, our work grew beyond our six county service area. In Napa County, a coalition that includes representation from the entire community of hospitals, physicians, community clinics, and other healthcare stakeholders worked tirelessly to bring Operation Access to their residents in 2014.This coming year, we will pilot programs in Santa Clara and Solano counties as well as an oral surgery program. In addition, we will continue to provide consultation nationwide to share our expertise and aid other organizations developing programs in their own communities. We take this opportunity to thank the entire coalition of stakeholders that makes our work possible and incredibly rewarding. With our deepest gratitude and respect, Message from the OA Board Chairman and CEOBoard of Directors Jonah Frohlich Managing Director Manatt Health Solutions Alvaro Fuentes Executive Director Community Clinic Consortium, Contra Costa & Solano Counties David Goldstein, MD Chief Medical Officer Contra Costa Regional Medical Center and Health Centers Doug Grey, MD, FACS Vascular Surgeon, Retired The Permanente Medical Group Alden Harken, MD, FACS Chair, UCSF-East Bay Dept. of Surgery Alameda Health System Paul Hofmann, Dr.P.H., Chair President Hofmann Healthcare Group Walter Kopp, Secretary President & CEO Medical Management Services Kristen Miranda Senior Vice President Blue Shield of California Faye Potts Principal Alliance for Healthcare Consulting Lorne Rosenfield, MD, FACS Surgeon, Director Peninsula Plastic Surgery Center Gregg Sass,Treasurer Health Care Finance Executive, Retired Steven Webster, MD, FACS, Vice Chair General Surgeon, Retired The Permanente Medical Group Ronald Wyatt,MD Orthopedic Surgeon The Permanente Medical Group, Diablo Service Area Monique Zmuda County Finance Executive, Retired Jason Beers (ex officio) President & CEO Operation Access Paul Hofmann, Dr. P.H.

  3. 3. Luis, a construction worker from Mexico, came to the US to find a better life for himself and his family. He found steady contract work installing windows and doing custom glass work. Within a short time, he became an active member in his community, volunteering at LifeLong Brookside Community Health Center as a health advocate. Despite a successful start, in 2011 Luis’s world began to crumble. As the economy worsened, his steady contract jobs became scarce. At the same time Luis noticed he struggled to see things clearly.The few jobs he secured over the following two years were increasingly difficult to perform because his vision continued to deteriorate. His vision loss became so severe that he cut his hands while working, could no longer drive, and had to rely on his wife to provide transportation. Eventually, he could no longer work and provide for his family. Relying solely on his wife’s income, they could not afford the rent for their apartment and had to rent a room in a crowded apartment with another family. Luis vividly remembers the day he lost all hope that things would get better. Luis was on a contract job at sunset. He climbed a ladder to install a window as In 2014 OA and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery Foundation’s Operation Sight program partnered to provide 23 cataract surgeries to patients in need. He OnceWas Blind he had done many times before, but this time when he looked down he saw only darkness. Suddenly he felt helpless and terrified he would fall and really hurt himself. Luis sought out help in September of 2013 and his life took a turn for the better. A nurse at LifeLong Brookside Community Health Center in San Pablo reviewed his case and informed him that he was being referred to Operation Access for surgery. When Luis learned about the donated services provided through Operation Access, he couldn’t believe his ears. “No way could an organization like this exist,” he told his nurse in disbelief. Luis was referred to OA in October 2013 with extremely advanced cataracts and diabetic retinopathy in both eyes. Once a confident, cheerful, and healthy man, Luis had become increasingly insecure and depressed as his vision deteriorated. OA coordinated medical volunteers at Kaiser Permanente’s Fremont, Redwood City, and Union City facilities to provide the two cataract procedures that Luis desperately needed. Dr. Lydia Hsu and a team of anesthesiologists, nurses, techs, and environmental services staff from Kaiser Permanente Redwood City donated the first procedure in May 2014. A few months later, during a monthly Eye Clinic at Kaiser Permanente Union City, Dr. Jeffrey Lehmer provided Luis with the necessary laser treatment to treat his diabetic retinopathy and cleared him for his second cataract surgery.That same day, Dr. StephenTanaka evaluated Luis’s remaining cataract and scheduled him for surgery with the team of volunteers at Kaiser Permanente Fremont in October. Today, Luis is happy and healthy.The two cataract procedures were a great success! He takes pride in sharing that he works and drives again thanks to Operation Access and the team of medical volunteers who came together in his time of need. Luis went from nearly legally blind to almost perfect vision (20/25 on his left eye and 20/20 on his right) thanks to our amazing medical volunteers. PhotobyAntoinedeFridman
