Link Health’s Mission and Impact
At Link Health we leverage the health sector to connect patients to the ACP and close the digital divide. To date, Link Health has partnered with over 700+ hospitals, clinics, and community health centers. While patients are waiting to see the doctor, our Link Health staff are able to assist in helping eligible patients sign up for the ACP during their doctor’s visit. Since our inception, we have helped over 2,000 people receive their $30 monthly benefit.
Link Health’s groundbreaking work has been featured at the Aspen Institute, NBC, and the New England Journal of Medicine.
Link Health’s vision is backed by its origin within A Healthier Democracy, a 501(c)3 incubator at the intersection of health and civic engagement. ER physician and Harvard Professor, Dr. Alister Martin, founded this organization, embodying our commitment to promoting health equity and civic involvement.
Partnership Opportunity in Houston: Fostering Community Impact
As part of our ongoing efforts, Link Health is excited to introduce our Houston Program. In collaboration with local clinics and healthcare centers, we aim to amplify the reach of the ACP and ensure equitable access to vital resources. This partnership holds the potential to transform the healthcare landscape and ensure that no patient is left behind due to digital barriers.
Link Health will select and enroll five clinics/healthcare centers in Houston in our pilot program.
Each community center partner agrees to allow Link Health staff to directly enroll patients into the ACP during their time in waiting rooms, one day per week during a five-hour shift.
Concurrently, each health center agrees to work with Link Health to send one text message blast about the ACP to patients. Link Health staff will manage ongoing text communications in case of replies so as to not burden health center staff.
Other details of the pilot partners of the program include:
- All costs of materials & resources are covered by Link Health during a four-month pilot program ranging from Aug. 15- Dec. 15th.
- Each participating clinic will receive a $5,000 stipend for their partnership
- In-person & digital ACP enrollment coordinated & delivered by paid Link Health Staff
- Spanish-speaking staff & materials provided by Link Health
