  • “Two Sides of the Same Coin: Addressing Social Determinants of Health and Enabling Services Data Collection” Webinar

    04/25/2019; Online
    Additional Information

    As health centers are held accountable for cost containment and high quality of care under value-based pay arrangements, it is increasingly important for providers to document the social determinants of health (SDoH) barriers of their patients and what services they are providing (both clinical and non-clinical) in order to properly care for those complex patients. Some of these services are called enabling services (ES), defined as non-clinical services that aim to increase access to care and improve health outcomes. Standardized data collection on SDoH and ES are two sides of the same coin and provide the foundation for health centers to succeed in a value-based pay environment. This not only helps them address root causes of poor health, but also highlights the value of the health center model.

    The Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO), in collaboration with Health Outreach Partners (HOP), National Health Care for the Homeless Council (NHCHC), and participating partners have updated a standardized protocol for ES data collection. Join us on this webinar to learn more about the ability of state Primary Care Associations (PCAs) to support the tracking and evaluation of these non-clinical services and why it is an important tool in helping health centers to demonstrate their value in meeting and addressing patient social risks.

  • Diabetes in Special & Vulnerable Populations: A National Learning Series

    03/14/2019 - 04/23/2019; Online
    Additional Information

    Diabetes affects more than 30 million people in the United States. Multi-tiered efforts to prevent, treat, and manage diabetes are critical in reducing the burden of diabetes, particularly for medically underserved racial and ethnic minority populations. In addition to higher prevalence, ethnic and racial minority patients with diabetes have higher rates of mortality and diabetic complications.

    Fourteen HRSA-funded NCAs have partnered to create a four-part national learning webinar series for health centers, Primary Care Associations, and Health Center Controlled Networks. The series’ goal is to increase foundational knowledge of effective strategies to prevent, treat, and manage diabetes among special and vulnerable Health Center Program populations.

    This series will focus on co-morbidities associated with diabetes (e.g., oral health, behavioral health, SUD, obesity, and social risk factors).

  • Beyond Quality of Care Measures: Preventing Cervical and Breast Cancer in Health Center Programs

    04/18/2019; Online
    Additional Information

    Some of the cancers that most often affect women are breast, colon, endometrial, lung, cervical, skin, and ovarian cancers. Breast cancer is the most common cancer that women may face in their lifetime aside from skin cancer. It affects women of any age and the risk goes up as they get older. In addition, cervical cancer can affect any woman who is or has been sexually active and is also prevalent among women with a history of human papilloma virus (HPV), as it is a sexually transmitted virus. This webinar will provide an overview of these cancers, illustrate early detection programs in two Public Housing Primary Care Health Centers and provide resources for patients and clinicians.

    Panelists:
    • Dr. Debbie Saslow, Director of Breast and Gynecological Cancer, American Cancer Society
