Local Access to Coordinated Healthcare (LATCH) is a program of the Division of Community Health, Department of Community and Family Medicine, Duke University School of Medicine. LATCH provides services to uninsured and under-insured Durham County residents. LATCH works to improve enrollees’ health, improve their access to care, and increase their appropriate use of health services through a combination of bilingual outreach, care management, health education, service enhancement, and systems change. With its community partners, LATCH recognizes health care trends, identifies barriers confronting uninsured patients, and, working as a consortium, addresses and eliminates access barriers.
