SOMC announces Lung Health NavigatorPosted on November 1, 2015

SOMC provides a Lung Health Navigator to meet the needs of our community and lung-patient population, serving as a free resource to combat tobacco addiction, lung disease and provide information about available lung screenings.

The Lung Health Navigator guides the patient through the full continuum of care by:

• Referring high-risk patients for early detection low-dose CT screenings

• Analyzing information and taking action to facilitate patient wellness and healing

• Collaborating with the patient and the patient’s family to ensure they are receiving the best care possible

• Coordinating patient care between specialties • Facilitating physician recommendations for patient care to ensure understanding and compliance

• Helping patients with financial needs find resources for assistance

• Providing educational and emotional support

• Providing facts – not opinions – for treatment advice
