Welcome to Patient Navigation Program
Jersey City Medical Center innovative, reward program for our
employees and patients
Patients with chronic health conditions benefit from
high-quality, coordinated outpatient care. This coordinated care includes patient-managed tasks and educational
activities that are 'best practices'. Health outcomes from studies
show improved health results including a better quality of life, fewer
complications, less hospitalizations, and lower overall healthcare costs.
How does the Patient Navigation Program program work?
WHO: Patients or employees of Jersey City Medical Center who wish to best
manage their chronic health conditions.
WHAT: The Patient Navigation Program is an innovative reward points program
to empower you as a patient to effectively manage your chronic health
condition as a true partner in your care. This is a free, voluntary program
with tangible rewards to you. You will be assigned a Patient Navigator
who will support you and provide you basic, effective, practical tools
and education to ensure that you can take control of your health.
This program is for individuals to earn points for reaching self-management
goals, which can be 'cashed' in for gift cards or products. Being
part of the Patient Navigation Program club also gets you discounts at
local vendors in your community.
WHEN: As a program participant you will receive a picture ID membership card
which will allow you to get discounts with several vendors throughout
Hudson County with expansion planned. From the moment you join who receive
WHERE: Our current vendors are located within Hudson County with an expanding
vendor participating list.
For primary care, we offer access to JCMC's Inner Circle of physicians
who are located throughout Hudson County and include our partnering Federally
Qualified Health Centers
WHY: We all respond best to rewards that are immediate and can be held in
our hands. Providing you an incentive to pick up your medicine, fill out
a chart, or get your flu shot for example is a smart use of 'healthcare
resources' and can help you live a healthier and happier life.
You earn reward points by:
- Meeting with your dedicated Champion Navigator and gaining awareness about
the cause, common symptoms and complications of your conditions.
