What are the start and end times for the mobile Program?
We arrive on site 1 hour prior to event for set up. Our team will work on specific schedule for your event.
How are patients scheduled?
Each host site establishes a Site Coordinator who will recruit and schedule patients for mammography screening. The patient schedule should be submitted at least 5 business days in advance.
Can we use our scheduling software to print a patient appointment list?
We will provide you with a patient schedule template, however, you can use your own list as long as the required data elements (name, address, insurance status, date of birth, primary provider, phone number and appointment time) are included on the list.
How many patients can be seen in an hour?
Appointments are in 15-minute intervals. Therefore, four patients can be seen in an hour (i.e., 9:00, 9:20, 9:40). Please fill all slots sequentially, i.e., do not leave holes in the schedule. We block time for our team to take breaks/lunch
Can patients be double booked?
No, we do not allow double booking. We will accommodate walk-ins.
How big is the mobile mammography coach?
The mobile unit is 45 feet long and will take up 4-5 contiguous parking spaces. Because of its size, the vehicle cannot make sharp turns.
How do we secure parking?
The host site is responsible for securing and blocking off a parking space large enough to accommodate the vehicle. If street parking is necessary, the host site must secure a permit from the Department of Transportation (DC, MD or VA). If a parking lot is available, the host should double check with the landlord to determine any restrictions/requirements, etc, and block off space for the coach.
How will we get patient results?
Patients will receive a letter with their results. Patients with abnormal findings will be scheduled at our fixed site for diagnostic follow-up by our navigators. In most cases, the Site Coordinator at each location will receive reports to distribute to clinic providers. Please make prior arrangements with BCW if you do not wish to have the Site Coordinator receive patient results for distribution to clinic providers.
Can uninsured patients be seen on the mobile?
Yes, we can accommodate uninsured patients. We work with several local programs who pay for services.
