Since April 2013, members of the Adams County Health Alliance have convened for a series of discussions regarding the status of health care in Adams County. These key stakeholders are committed to achieving increased access to quality health care and improved health outcomes in the community by establishing partnerships and identifying collaborative strategies.
The mission of the Adams County Health Alliance is to improve health outcomes for Adams County residents by creating an affordable, quality and accessible health care system through collaborative partnerships of health and community organizations
Key Areas of Work
Based on the collective needs and assets of alliance members, the Adams County Health Alliance focuses its work on the following priority areas:
Access and Care Coordination – The alliance will work to develop a health care system that Adams County users trust. There will be increased coordination through referrals, medical record keeping and sharing, and consumer education. Open communication and resource sharing between providers will also be prioritized.
Engaging Hard to Reach Populations – The alliance will work to create higher cultural awareness among health care providers. Organizations conducting outreach will be part of a larger community engagement strategy and will continually evaluate their progress.
· Integrated Behavioral, Oral and Physical Health - To ensure successful integrated care, Adams County providers will work as a ‘whole health team’ for the patient. Additionally, a comprehensive network of existing health care providers and specialists will exist from successful inventory and communication.
