Our Global Work

OUR GLOBAL HEALTHCARE COMMITMENT

We believe that long-term commitments to in-country partners and individual communities can improve health outcomes in a systematic and profound way. Our medical teams provide primary care services to partner communities every 2-3 months. But these trips are just one step in a much larger health system we’ve developed to ensure our patients have access to the consistent, quality healthcare they need.

OUR APPROACH

ACCESS:
We provide direct healthcare services to underserved communities by delivering responsible, efficient, and effective programs that increase health access and improve health outcomes. 
EMPOWERMENT:

We strive to provide opportunities for volunteers to address global challenges at home and abroad. We seek to foster a life-long commitment to humanitarianism and health equity.

PARTNERSHIP:

We strengthen the mission and efforts of our local partner organizations by providing financial, medical, in-kind, and human resources to build their capacity and expand their outreach.

Continuity of Patient Care

Timmy sends volunteer medical teams to provide consistent, quality care to pre-selected communities every 2-3 months. These long-term relationships allow our medical volunteers to follow-up on tough conditions, manage chronic diseases, and more effectively treat patients who lack access to consistent medical care. Timmy also employs on-the-ground coordinators and community health workers, both of whom help maintain a year-round presence in the communities where we work.

Patient Record Management

We use a proprietary electronic medical record (EMR) called TimmyCare to main efficient, reliable health records for our patients. TimmyCare is a cloud backed, web-based system designed specifically for working environments with limited to no electricity or internet connection. It helps our healthcare providers improve data collection, track patient conditions, and analyze patient data to more efficiently and effectively make programmatic and clinical decisions.

Patient Referral Systems

We have established referral systems with in-country health partners to provide services beyond our primary care clinics. Patients in need of advanced testing,surgery, or other specialized services are referred to this network. Timmy often subsidizes (and sometimes pays in full) the cost of follow-up care, helps facilitate transportation, and assists with cultural barriers (including providing indigenous speaking translators, when necessary).

Partner & Community Care

In addition to our medical service teams, Timmy provides our partners with annual financial and in-kind support. Each partner organization receives annual funding for their operations as well as for patient follow-up and referral costs. Where possible, Timmy also invests resources in essential public health and preventative medical programs to help ensure that we treat both the symptoms and the causes of major health issues.
