The Kiowa Community Health Representatives (CHR) are transporters of last resort. CHRs do transport patients to Indian Health Service (IHS) facilities and health centers that are referred by IHS. They can also transport clients to and from health facilities but will require family support in the form of a family member assisting, CHRs will not leave a client at any facility unless they are being admitted to that facility and under a doctor's care. They can also pick up medication prescriptions from the IHS Pharmacy when a CHR is transporting to the IHS facility.
CHRs do not transport "on demand". Transports to Lawton, Anadarko, or Clinton will require three (3) days' notice. Transport to OKC will require five (5) days' notice. Transports from the town of Carnegie to Carnegie Indian Clinic are on demand if CHRs are available.
Community Health Representatives (CHR) provide Health Education, promote Disease Prevention, and are a liaison between the IHS and Indian People
