Ochsner is committed to a clinically-integrated research program with the ultimate goal of improving the health and wellness of our patients and communities. As the largest academic medical center in Louisiana, we are training the next generation of healthcare professionals to be leaders who can meet evolving healthcare challenges.
The statistically and clinically significant results of the pilot program– one of the first in the country – showed that enrollment in Ochsner Digital Medicine brought nearly half of all out-of-control Hypertension patients under control at only 90 days.
The Men’s Health Fair will offer free healthcare services, medical screenings, and healthcare best practices as well as 30-minute healthcare education sessions about colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, and peripheral artery disease – all healthcare issues common to men.
Ochsner 65 Plus visits are typically longer than traditional primary care visits, allowing patients to schedule physician appointments up to an hour. Patients and their care teams get to know one another, and family and friends are welcome.
The donated windowed masks are being distributed by the schools and school systems to teachers and staff who rely on students seeing their lips to connect to the subject being taught, such as phonics for young children. These specialty areas include pre-kindergarten to second grade teachers, special education teachers and staff, school therapists and foreign language teachers.
If the nation stays on its current course, hospital leaders are increasingly concerned that more healthcare facilities will be overwhelmed as shortages of healthy caregivers make it difficult to handle a rapidly increasing number of patients.
The donation to Son of a Saint will fund critical programmatic staff and enhance the organization’s services to promote the whole person—mind, body and spirit—through healthcare educators, social workers and mental health providers, as well as support and provide opportunities for Ochsner’s male staff to mentor boys in the program.
The goals of the registry are to engage healthcare workers in a research community, understand their experiences and interests through ongoing surveys, and track critical health outcomes associated with caring for patients with COVID-19, such as stress and burnout.
