  • “Increasing Access to Care and Improving Health Outcomes: A Spotlight on Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander-Serving Health Centers” Webinar

    12/20/18; Via Web (See URL)

    Additional Information

    Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders (AA&NHPIs) are among the fastest growing racial/ethnic groups in the United States. AA&NHPIs are highly diverse in their culture, language, and health needs, representing more than 50 ethnic groups and 100 languages. In 2017, nearly 1.2 million AA&NHPIs received care at a community health center. States that experienced new growth in the number of AA&NHPI health center patients include Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Nevada, and Texas. Health centers provide high quality, culturally and linguistically appropriate comprehensive primary care to these and other medically underserved communities, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. Because of their multi-disciplinary approach to care, health centers effectively address both clinical and non-clinical health and social risk factors, and play a major role in addressing racial and ethnic health disparities.

    Join us for a live webinar to learn more about the role of health centers in increasing access to care and improving health outcomes for medically underserved AA&NHPIs. Presenters will share key findings from AAPCHO’s new and soon-to-be released fact sheet entitled, “The Health of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders Served at Health Centers: UDS 2017”.

    About the National Needs Assessment

    The Health Resources and Services Administration’s Bureau of Primary Health Care (HRSA/BPHC) has requested the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) to conduct a national health center needs assessment in collaboration with the 20 National Cooperative Agreement (NCA) organizations. Health center response to the needs assessment will inform the development of operational training and technical assistance (T/TA) provided by the 20 NCA organizations to health centers. The information received from the assessment will inform future T/TA planning, development, dissemination, and evaluation to best support health center operational needs.

    Objectives: This consolidated Needs Assessment will:

    • Minimize Health Center burden by reducing the number of needs assessments deployed.
    • Increase Health Center ease in response through a more streamlined needs assessment.
    • Identify training topics and preferred delivery modes to best support health centers’ delivery of high quality care through improved operations.
    Who should complete the assessment

    All health center staff members are strongly encouraged to participate and provide feedback from all levels of the organization.

    How to complete the assessment

    The assessment will take approximately 15-30 minutes to complete. If you are a health center CEO or CMO you will receive your own personalized link to the survey from, on or around September 12, 2018.

    Remaining health center staff (not CEO/CMO) can complete the assessment via an easy online portal.
