Access Esperanza Clinics is the largest and oldest family planning agency along the south Texas border. We have provided high quality affordable health services in Hidalgo County for over 50 years and annually serve about 15,000 people. Our mission is to provide education, advocacy, and affordable high-quality health care so women and men in our community can access the sexual and reproductive health services they need. Members of the First United Methodist Church in Mission, Texas founded our agency in 1964. Their purpose was to improve the quality of life for people with limited incomes by helping women plan and space pregnancies. We continue their legacy of building strong, healthy communities with four full-time and two part-time clinics located throughout Hidalgo County. Over 90 percent of our patients meet income guidelines for free or low-cost services, and for many, we are their only healthcare provider. Our services offer patients opportunities and hope for brighter, healthier futures. Women who are able to prevent unplanned pregnancies have safer birth, are healthier, have healthier children, stay in school longer, and earn more. When pregnancies are planned, the risk of family violence is less, and dads are more likely to be involved in the children’s lives. Prevention works! When women can access family planning services, the entire community benefits when. Every $1 invested in public family planning programs like ours saves taxpayers over $7 in Medicaid prenatal and birth costs. Access Esperanza Clinics Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Funding comes from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, the Department of State Health Services, and the federal Title X family planning program. Private donations and foundations also fund patient services and educational programs. At Access Esperanza Clinics, we offer opportunities and hope for people to plan their futures and stay healthy. You can count on us for quality, affordable, and confidential care at all of our health clinics.
ExploreHealthCareers.org is a free, peer-reviewed website designed to educate students and advisors about health careers. ExploreHealthCareers.org’s mission is to help solve two urgent problems in U.S. health care: the under-representation of minorities in the workforce and the shortage of health professionals in medically underserved communities. ExploreHealthCareers.org hopes to help build a stronger health care workforce by providing easy access to updated, peer-reviewed career descriptions that inspire and motivate students to find health careers that suit them. Their vision is to see the health professionals of tomorrow be highly skilled and motivated, and as diverse as the patients they serve. Considering that, health care is a vast field that offers a range of diverse opportunities, it is important that all student research before deciding on a position to make sure you choose one that’s a good fit for them. People can start with the Career Explorer in their website, as it collects details about all different types of health care positions to allow you to compare and contrast those that interest you. Furthermore, the best health care practitioners are committed to giving their patients the best care possible. These health care practitioners prioritize keeping up with the latest developments in the field, continuing to study and learn long after their initial schooling ends. If you have a similar interest in lifelong learning, it’s a good idea to consider entering the health care field. Finally, Health care is increasingly focusing on team work as patients’ recovery depends more and more on how well each member of the team performs his or her specific function and how well they communicate and collaborate with one another. Even dentists — 70% of whom work in a solo private practice — usually supervise and work closely with several staff members. When choosing a health care position, you’ll want to consider the amount of teamwork it requires to ensure it’s a good fit for you and your working style.

We help clinics improve outcomes by sending their patients personalized information and reminders. For example, we send colonoscopy patients instructions to help them arrive prepared. We send patients custom content for upcoming appointments and procedures to help them arrive prepared and informed. This has proven impacts on compliance and outcomes, saving clinics thousands. After medical visits, we use diagnosis information in EHRs to send post-visit content that can help a patient manage their condition and understand the necessity of follow-ups. Using information in electronic health records, we identify patients who may need to come in (for example for a colonoscopy) and allow physicians to send patients content or reminders to come in.
Abridge is a company founded by patients, doctors, researchers, and technologists. We believe that patients should have the power to control their health information through technology. Patients should also be an equal partner in relationships with their care providers. We leverage groundbreaking technologies to help people remember the important details from their health conversations, so they can better follow their care plan. With more context and understanding of medical conversations, we hope to help everyone achieve better health outcomes. We put people-centered design into practice. Our mission is to bring context and understanding to every medical conversation, so people can stay on top of their health. Abridge was created for everyone, with a mission to help us all better understand our health conversations, whether at home or in the hospital.

We ask ourselves on a daily basis: is what we’re creating for the benefit of the patient? Everyone’s health journey is unique, so we meet people where they are and for what they need. Health care is inherently human, so we build technology to improve—not replace—your existing care. We focus on using technology to bring new utility and outcomes in service of the clinician-patient relationship.
