Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

It has been an honor to be able to serve in a leadership position that provides services found in very few places in our state. With our current President and CEO, Richard Carlisle, we have grown throughout the state and serve over 10,000 patients. Unfortunately, the HIV/AIDS infection rate is growing and the need for our services is growing along with it. Florida is now #1 in the country for new HIV infections We have built a new board with great experience and fresh ideas, so I look forward to a very challenging but healthy future for Community AIDS Network.

Statement from the CEO/Executive Director

Our great success has been the physical growth of CAN throughout the entire state of Florida. This achievement directly relates to our biggest challenge, as we have to hire and train personnel to staff our new locations. However, the most important challenge is due to the rise of HIV/AIDS in all segments of our population. Florida is now #1 in the country and the local numbers of infected patients is growing at an alarming rate. 

CAN(CCC) is the oldest HIV services organization in Sarasota founded in 1991.
Programs
Description

The dental services program provided by CAN's Comprehensive Care Center is designed to provide treatment and services to those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C and STDs, regardless of the ability to pay. Dental problems that are left unaddressed to a person with HIV and other infectious diseases may lead to a host of other medical issues. Accordingly, our dental program provides services such as cleanings, dental evaluations and exams, extractions, dentures, oral cancer screenings, x-rays, as well as several other services to meet the needs of the patients. These dental services are an important part of the success in the overall plan of care for an individual living with HIV. Education is reinforced at each dental visit as well as at periodic case management and medical visits. In the past year, over 885 dental visits were made to CAN's dental center.

Short Term Success
The short term success of this program begins with the referral for dental services from the medical, case management departments of CAN and from external organizations (SCHD, Senior Friendship Center, Bethesda House, etc.) During the initial visit clients are screened for any conditions that provide an "immediate threat" to the health of the client. During this visit the clinician begins gathering data that is necessary to create a plan of care for the patient that addresses the immediate and long term needs that coincides with the medical and case management plan(s) of care. Dental personnel provide the initial education regarding the importance of oral hygiene, compliance with plans of care, and adherence to medications. The groundwork from this visit is built upon at future visits to maximize the health of the client and reduce transmission rates.
Long Term Success
All programs at CAN share an ultimate goal of reducing the transmission rates of HIV and lowering the number of new infections. Studies have shown that patients who are adherent in taking their medications reduce the transmission rate by up to 96% Clients are more likely to be adherent with medications when all of the side effects and health needs have been satisfactorily addressed. This includes oral health which plays a significant role in wasting syndrome as well as many other aspects of a patients overall health.

Program Success Examples
87 percent of clients receiving comprehensive treatment for HIV that include medical, dental, patient education, and mental health services report improved health outcomes Most clients that were unable to work improve to the point that they are able to return to the workforce. This outcome requires consistent, on-going patient education from a multi-disciplinary team to overcome compliance issues related to drug side effects, expense, complexities of medication instructions, and time consumption. 
 
ex. J.H. was diagnosed with HIV in the mid 1980's and suffered from all of the standard symptoms. Unable to work any longer, he was barely surviving on Social Security Disability of less than $900 per month. He came to CAN for treatment and a comprehensive plan of care was designed that addressed issues specific to him including medical, dental, mental health, financial, and housing. Three years later he felt he was no longer going to "sit at home and wait to die", so he returned to school and earned a Bachelor's degree and is now employed full time in the medical industry and is earning an above average salary.
Description

CAN's Comprehensive Care Center participates in the federal 340B Drug Discount Program. Under the 340B program, drug manufacturers provide medications at a discounted rate to approved safety net healthcare providers (such as Comprehensive Care Center) for patients who receive medical services from these safety net healthcare providers. Enacted in 1992 and administered by the Office of Pharmacy Affairs, the federal program (which does not rely on tax dollars) is designed to help covered entities "stretch scarce federal resources as far as possible, reaching more eligible patients and providing more comprehensive services". CAN's Comprehensive Care Center generates savings by procuring drugs at a discounted rate for our eligible patients. These savings allow us to fund and create ways to broaden healthcare related services, produce better patient outcomes, support a variety of client/patient assistance programs, and increase the scope of services that are made available to low-income, uninsured and under-insured patients throughout the communities we serve. Our 340B pharmacy program continues to grow with patients now participating throughout our statewide network of clinics, providers, and pharmacies.

Description

CAN's Comprehensive Care Center's medical services program is designed to provide a continuum of care and medical treatment services to individuals and families living with, and affected by, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, sexually transmitted diseases and other diseases. Patients have encounters with physicians, case managers, nursing staff, and specialty medical providers who assess and design an interdisciplinary plan of care, regardless of their ability to pay.

Short Term Success
The short term success of this program begins with the referral for medical services from the case management department of CAN's Comprehensive Care Center. During the initial medical visit clients are evaluated clinically and a medical plan of care is created. During this visit the clinician explains the plan of care to the clients and addresses any questions or concerns. Education is provided to the patient.
Long Term Success

Clients are impacted in numerous ways.  The aggressive and comprehensive treatment model allows clients to achieve the highest quality of life by providing the best medical options dependent upon the specific health of the client.  By monitoring the viral load and CD4 counts, our physicians adjust a drug regimen to stabilize and then improve the effect of the disease on a client's health.  Once stabilized, our physicians address the side effects of the disease and the medications and turn their efforts into the primary care needs of the client.  Even a common cold or flu can be a threat to the health of a client with a compromised immune system.  These and all medical events are assessed and a medical plan of care is created and monitored to achieve the highest health outcome for the client.

Experience A devoted friend of CAN’s, Richard E. Carlisle became its third president and CEO in April, 2015. Born in Columbus, Georgia and a graduate of Auburn University, Rick came to Sarasota over 35 years ago. He was with Sarasota Memorial Hospital for fifteen years as Vice President responsible for much of the satellite growth of Sarasota Memorial Hospital, from the initial development of five outpatient centers, the critical care center and several childcare centers, as well as overseeing the indigent care clinic. While at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Rick also became the administrative liaison with CAN and served as a board member, working closely with Susan Terry, the original Executive Director of CAN. This began a long and lasting relationship. He continued his career in Sarasota with high-end real estate development and construction, building many high profile structures throughout Sarasota – including the current CAN clinic.
