HOP staff understand the clinic environment, the pressures we have...they work hard to keep us focused and committed to making the changes we need. I really like the framework, assessment guides, and sample materials provided by HOP. -Consultation Client

MIDWEST SISTER C. ABHOLD AWARD RECIPIENTCongratulations to the National Center for Farmworker Health, Inc. on receiving the Sister Cecilia B Abhold Award for the Midwest Stream! NCFH ensures that promotoras and community health workers are a vital component of the Midwest Stream Farmworker Health Forum and that outreach is a central part of the workshops and discussions. They respond to the need for outreach worker professional development opportunities with an inspiring and affordable conference that leverages the wealth of knowledge that attendees posses. HOP thanks NCFH for their commitment to supporting outreach programs in the Midwest Stream.
In response, HOP developed the Outreach Business Value strategic framework and corresponding toolkit. The toolkit consists of four financial calculators that health centers can use to assess the financial case for investing in outreach. The calculators include:
1. The Outreach and Enrollment Calculator,
2. The Clinical Efficiency Calculator,
3. The Alternative Payment Methods Calculator, and
4. The Avoided Costs Calculator.
Each calculator in the toolkit allows decision-makers to look at a number of variables relevant for their health centers in order to calculate potential financial benefit achievable through outreach.
Now through December 31, 2014, the strategic framework, dimensions of integration, and toolkit will be available upon request to Health Center Program Grantees and Primary Care Associations. Submit a request for access by clicking here!
EAST COAST SISTER C. ABHOLD AWARD RECIPIENTWe are pleased to present the Sister Cecilia B Abhold Award to the North Carolina Community Health Center Association. We want to honor their leadership in, advocacy for, and advancement of outreach programs both at the East Coast Migrant Stream Forum and beyond. They have remained leaders in outreach and have ensured that the training and development of outreach workers and programs is an essential part of the forum. As outreach has grown in popularity and is being incorporated into more conferences and discussions, HOP believes that NCCHCA remains a pioneer, ensuring that the heart and spirit of outreach, all the intangibles, are a core part of the forum.
