Enabling Services at Health Centers: Eliminating Disparities and Improving Quality
Challenges and Opportunities for Health Centers in Collecting Data on Enabling Services

Resource Topic: Quality Improvement
Resource Subtopic: Enabling Services (ES), Patient-Centered Health Outcomes, Policy and Advocacy, Services and Programs, Quality Improvement, Research and Data, Special and Vulnerable Populations

Resource Type: Publication

Primary Audience: C-Suite (CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, COOs, CMOs, etc)

Language: English

Developed by: Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (See other resources developed by this organization.)

Resource Summary: This report describes a pilot study conducted by AAPCHO and four member health centers. Through this project, a uniform dataset on enabling services was created and a standardized method for collecting data was implemented. The data demonstrates that a high percentage of patients at health centers utilize enabling services (ES), and each user receives more than one ES. The data is able to provide information on the variations in utilization of enabling services and user characteristics at each health center.

Resource Details: This report is a collaboration between the New York Academy of Medicine and AAPCHO to examine the enabling services (ES) data collected at four health centers serving Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AA&NHPIs). The four health centers are Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center in Waianae, HI, Charles B. Wang Community Health Center in New York, NY, International Community Health Services in Seattle, WA, and Kalihi-Palama Health Center in Honolulu, HI.

Resource Topic: Quality Improvement
Resource Subtopic: Enabling Services (ES), Patient-Centered Health Outcomes, Policy and Advocacy, Services and Programs, Quality Improvement, Research and Data, Special and Vulnerable Populations

Resource Type: Publication

Primary Audience: C-Suite (CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, COOs, CMOs, etc)

Language: English

Developed by: Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (See other resources developed by this organization.)

Resource Summary: This factsheet outlines results from a study conducted examining the health conditions of enabling service (ES) users. The study provides an essential foundation for future ES studies that examine health outcomes for specific conditions. By examining ES and their measurable effects on health, we can begin to develop funding and reimbursement strategies to pay for these essential and currently non-reimbursed services at health centers nationwide.

Resource Details: This factsheet examined health center patients who utilize enabling services (ES). The health centers studied are those primarily serving Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders (AA&NHPIs). Patient diagnoses were categorized into ambulatory care sensitive conditions (ACSCs) and nine different ES categories were included in the analysis to better examine the differences in patient health conditions by ES use.

Health Center Investments in Enabling Services Associated with Better outcomes

Resource Topic: Quality Improvement
Resource Subtopic: Enabling Services (ES), Patient-Centered Health Outcomes, Programs and Services, Policy and Advocacy, Research and Data, HIT-Data, Social Determinants of Health

Resource Type: Publication

Primary Audience: C-Suite (CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, COOs, CMOs, etc)

Language: English

Developed by: Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (See other resources developed by this organization.)

Resource Summary: This factsheet provides analysis of the health center data from the 2015 Uniform Data System (UDS). The data highlights that enabling services staffing and costs are associated with better national quality measures, including higher rate of HbA1c < 8%, higher rate of controlled hypertension, higher cervical cancer screening, and higher child immunization rate.

Resource Details: This fact sheet examines the association between health centers’ investment in enabling services (ES) and patient health outcomes. Enabling services are non-clinical services that aim to increase access to health care and improve health outcomes. This data shows that investments in enabling services are vital. Enabling services are crucial in health centers ability to address social determinants of health.

Resource Summary: This factsheet highlights the impact of enabling services (ES) on diabetes and childhood immunizations at four health centers, Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center in Waianae, HI, Charles B. Wang Community Health Center in New York, NY, International Community Health Services in Seattle, WA, and Kalihi-Palama Health Center in Honolulu, HI. The results indicate that ES utilization is associated with better diabetes outcomes and child immunization.

Resource Details: This fact sheet summarizes the data collected as part of the Enabling Services Accountability Project. The purpose of the project was to develop a standardized ES data collection model for health centers and examine the impact of ES utilization on national quality measures. The project demonstrates the vital role of ES in reducing health disparities and improving health services quality. It also illustrates the importance of developing long-term federal and state initiatives to fully support these essential and currently poorly-reimbursed services at health centers across our nation.
