Mammogram Assistance: Patient Navigation

This program helps women who don't get good mammogram results and need more testing.

In 2011, we started a patient navigation program. Our patient navigator contacts these women to:

  • See if they understand what they should do next
  • Help them get mammogram films from another time
  • Schedule a visit to see a doctor at Fox Chase
  • Solve other issues
