Additional Services

Preventive Oral Health Services in the Primary Care Medical Environment

Medical Oral Expanded Care

Eads Medical Clinic is partnering with Colorado Rural Health Center and developing the MOrE Care program for Eads and Kiowa County residents.

What is MOrE Care?

MOrE Care (Medical Oral Expanded Care) is an initiative of the DentaQuest Institute (DQI) with an aim of providing primary and secondary preventive oral health services in primary care medical offices to underserved populations, as well as testing optimal patient-centered referral systems between primary care and dental care teams.

Addressing Rural Disparities through MOrE Care 

Millions of Americans lack access to basic oral health care. Children and adults living in rural communities, however, face additional challenges including higher rates of poverty, dental provider shortages, and a lack of dependable transportation.

Although rural primary care providers have the potential to play a pivotal role in the oral health of their patients, several key elements needed for successful integration of oral health into primary care are currently lacking. These often include:

  • Medical education training on oral health competencies for primary care providers
    • This allows them to provide primary and secondary oral health prevention care
  • A sustainable, systemic model for collaborative practice with dental providers
  • Practice systems that support oral health care delivery and coordination with dental providers

DQI is partnering with state offices of rural health to begin testing strategies to overcome these barriers and develop the systems in the primary care practices to support the delivery of oral health care. Efforts are also ongoing to develop infrastructure to create a dental delivery system for patients who need dental treatment of disease.

KCHD supports the DQI and Colorado Rural Health Center efforts in developing and implementing the MOrE Care initiative.

Insulin Pump

What Is Insulin Pump Therapy?

An insulin pump is a small device—about the size of a small cell phone—that is worn externally. It can be discreetly clipped to your belt, slipped into a pocket, or hidden under your clothes. An insulin pump—properly used—delivers precise doses of rapid-acting insulin to closely match your body’s needs:

  • Basal Rate: Small amounts of insulin delivered continuously (24/7) for normal functions of the body (not including food).
    • The programmed rate is determined by your health care professional.
  • Bolus Dose: Additional insulin you can deliver “on demand” to match the food you are going to eat or to correct a high blood sugar.
    • Insulin pumps have bolus calculators that help you calculate your bolus amount based on settings that are determined by your health care professional.

Please click on the link below to find out more information on this innovative device or call the Eads Clinic and schedule an appointment. Training is available.

Caring for Student/Adult Athletes in Kiowa County

Athletic/School Physicals

Kiowa County Hospital District partners with area schools to provide Enhanced Performance Evaluations. These special athletic movement evaluations are provided in combined with the annual required Sports Physical for Students.

This evaluation will be used to assess fundamental human movement patterns in an effort to identify limitations and asymmetries that could predispose a person to training injuries due to overuse.

Improper movement patterns can compromise the intended effects of training and physical conditioning. The evaluation is administered quickly and easily, and identifies improper movement patterns, to assist students, parents, and coaches/ trainers in preventing injury and providing proper corrective exercises to restore and enhance proper athletic movement.

This valuable service is available all year long. Follow our Calendar page for new special clinics to promote this important evaluation opportunity.

  • If you choose not to participate in CIIS, you’re responsible for keeping track of your/your child’s immunization record.​​
How to opt-out of CIIS
1. Complete the CIIS Opt-Out Form (English Spanish | Vietnamese | Arabic | French | Russian)
  • Attach one signed copy of the form to your/your child’s medical record in the location usually reserved for the immunization record, if applicable or practical for clinic work flow.​
2. To complete the opt-out, it’s your responsibility to:
  • Mail or fax one signed copy of the CIIS Opt-Out Form to the CIIS office at the address on the bottom of the form.
