Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What we seek to accomplish is to reach more people who are in desperate need of healthcare.
We serve the uninsured and low income of Collier County. As of July, 2019, we treated 2500 walk-in patients, 500 of which were treated for free, because they had no means to pay. In this wealthy county of 370,000 people, about 48,000 are below the poverty line, and almost 70,000 are without health insurance. Because of funding, there is a lack of awareness of PANIRA in the community and health care access for the under-served. Detailed information on Naples and the County population that we serve is provided below, broken down by ethnicity.

NAPLES -Population (approx) 21,000 *

*2017-census-5 yr survey

According to the County Health Department, 66,835 people did not see a doctor due to cost, and 102,000 never received a checkup. Donations will enable PANIRA to:
1. Reach out to more patients.
2. Expand services to include x-ray services, mental health support services, and specialty medical services.












A.2 - GOALS (Administrative)

1) Improve
new patient enrollment by 20% each year. 2) Financially
break-even by 12 months of operation. 3) Nurture
and develop a positive work environment.

1) As in any business, it is
imperative to off-set expenditures with revenues from the business, donations,
and philanthropic grants. The current patient profile includes cash for
services, Medicare, Tricare and some insurances. We anticipate to be credentialed with Medicaid and additional private insurances. An integral part of PANIRA Clinic’s strategic plan is to
apply for government grants to help subsidize the medical care provided to the
under privileged in our community. 

2) Marketing plays a major role to accomplish our mission and vision including the goals. PANIRA Clinic is patient driven clinic. Our goals are to create a marketing environment to bring the patients in clinic in order to keep our community healthy. Through our marketing system, we are targeting:

Patients
of all ages and all socioeconomic status with health insurance in order to sustain financially.Patients
who are enrolled in Medicaid, Medicare, Workman’s Compensation.Patients
who are uninsured and of low income with barriers to access so that the can access to the sliding fee programs and free clinics to reduce mortality rate.Healthcare
providers for collaboration and networking: endocrinologist, dentist,
ophthalmologist, cardiologist, orthopedist, pediatrician, internist, other
physicians and clinicians (e.g., social worker, therapist, psychologist, etc.)Volunteers
of all professions, vocations and compassion to help the under served.Healthcare
institutions, charitable institutions, church leaders, department of health,
fitness companies, schools, colleges and universities for collaboration and
partnership.Business
leaders, wealthy individuals, philanthropic institutions for sponsorship and
donationsOther
non-profit CEOs and ExecutivesCelebrities
who have a passion to serve the under privileged STRATEGIES   a) Media Relations: Spread the story
of the founding of the clinic and testimonials about how PANIRA Healthcare
Clinic helps families and individuals, creating favorable word-of-mouth
referrals, and generating third party endorsement that comes from editorial
placement.    b) Networking – Expand our membership in the Chambers
of Commerce in Naples. Outreach to all
fraternal organizations and women’s groups– Kiwanis, American
Business Women’s Association, Women’s Network of Collier County, Collier
Medical Society and others. c) Broadcasting – Create video
testimonials and other visuals that can be utilized on the website, in
broadcast ads, posted to YouTube and sent as e-blasts. An advertising campaign
targeting the specific audiences will be developed for cable television
advertising. Public service
announcements will be pursued.  c) Directory Listings – Conduct a
comprehensive search of all viable listing opportunities ensuring PANIRA
Healthcare Clinic is included. Also identify any listings that require payment.

















 

d) Social Media – gofundme.com and more social media sites in order to spread the word
about the need and raise funds. Engage audiences of all ages with educational
and informative articles that answer questions and concerns about caring for
the poor. We can support your social media platforms with content.  e) Trade Show Exhibits - Participate in
local health fairs, fundraisers, senior expos, national industry trade shows,
etc. to share best practices and identify like-minded contacts that can support
PANIRA Healthcare Clinic’s efforts.  f) Special Events –Fundraisers, health fairs, senior
citizen centers, schools and more. g) Like
lawyers before them, doctors now openly market and advertise their services,
although there is a stigma related to this method of marketing. h) Professional
services marketing still require that the promotional efforts be dignified.

1) PANIRA Clinic is currently renting space and we are working toward the acquisition of a building to hold our daily projected patients. 2) As walk-in Express Care Clinic, we plan on being accredited with the Joint Commission and/or other accrediting company to have an Urgent Care Center.

We would like to equip ourselves with the necessary staff and tools in order to support us in this initiative. 4) We need to maintain a steady revenue so that the clinic can sustain financially.
