With a specific end goal to figure out if or not the enrolling technique is powerful, facilities and social insurance focuses will start publicizing the program and enlisting members in September of year one. The program organizers will enlist patients for three month paving the way to the experimental run program in January. The strategy used to enlist patients into the program is to figure out whether patients are qualified when they for any reason are looking for care. The primary population is Native Hawaiians on the Waianae Coast, alongside Pacific Islanders and Filipinos. The Director of Chief Health, Hawaii Health Department, and Waianae Community Director will cooperate to screen patients for the criteria and will then encourage those appropriate to participate in the program. To boost support, join shapes that depict the program will be accessible in taking interest facilities to be swung into center staff. Members will then be reached utilizing their favored strategy (phone, email, or mail) with further subtle elements and guidelines for contribution with the program. This selecting strategy will be tried preceding the test case program to figure out if or not it is compelling in making interest and investment in the

The effectiveness of the health care we provide at Salina Family Health Care is measured routinely. For example, there is a “health care plan” that encompasses 16 different aspects of health care that we’ve determined to be important to our patient population. For these 16 “goals” we have 34 specific interventions we’ve implemented to help us achieve these goals.

This health care plan drives our practice and the feedback we receive for our efforts guide our practice daily.
