Glenkirk and Search coordinate thousands of medical and behavioral health appointments for over 400 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities annually. Keystone, Glenkirk and Search embarked on a collaborative initiative to develop a network of specialized medical clinics serving people in their programs. Today, this network consists of three clinics located in Arlington Heights, Mount Prospect and Lincoln Square, Chicago.
Through the clinics, individuals have access to a one stop shop healthcare center. Each person is provided with a primary care physician and a Care Coordinator, as well as access to an array of specialty care. This initiative has resulted in a reduction in missed appointments, improved follow-through with treatments, care and transitions, increased access to specialty care, a decreased reliance on emergency room care and most importantly, improved health outcomes.
