The Regional Healthcare Coalition is a group of individuals from the community who volunteer their time and effort to improve our community members access to care. The group is comprised of members of the healthcare team including staff from hospitals, physician offices, home health agencies, health departments, long-term care homes in our region. There are also community-based organizations, insurance companies, and privately-owned businesses participating.
We have quarterly meetings where members are given updates on what is happening within our communities and what new programs are available to help meet the needs of those we serve.
The group targets specific issues that have been identified as potential barriers to care and works together to overcome the problem. Currently we are developing a comprehensive community resource guide that will be accessible to healthcare professionals and the public, and also medication management toolkit for the healthcare community.
