Latest from Omaha, NE
Recently Michelle Sullivan and Barb Malek in Omaha, NE sent CompassCare an encouraging summary of the results they have been seeing regarding reaching more women at-risk for abortion after implementing a linear patient service platform. It reads as follows:
2007 vs. 2008 statistics
For the 2nd quarter (April, May, June) of 2008 we saw 224 patients for pregnancy tests (This does not include retests. Some were patients we had seen in the past, but this was a new pregnancy for them.) Of these, 131 were positive tests, and 93 were negative. This means that 58% of all our tests were positive tests. (I wish I could break that down into those that were strongly abortion minded, but, unfortunately, that would be a lengthy process, and I do not have time. With our new database, we will know this information easily. However, we all know from experience that the number of those patients has risen quite dramatically.)
By comparison, in the 2nd quarter of 2007, we saw 172 patients for pregnancy tests. Of these 85 (or 49%) were positive. This is an increase of 23% more patients, and, even more importantly, an increase of 35% more positive pregnancy tests over 2007.
Lastly, I would like to compare June 2007 to June 2008. In June of 2007, we saw 55 total pregnancy test patients. In June of 2008, we had 54 positive tests, and saw a total of 90 patients. (In June of 2006, we only saw 27 patients for new pregnancy tests, with only 12 positive tests. By the way, these were the statistics that drove us to seek out a new way of doing things. As a result, we found CompassCare. God is good!)
