Evaluation is a key to greater understanding and improvement. Below are some of the learnings from our earlier work that help inform our current and future efforts.

Emergency Department Consistent Care Program at Providence St. Peter Hospital: An Evaluative Report - April 2010

The first formal evaluation of the program, this report uses pre/post comparison methods and focuses on changes in the annual rates of ED visits, ED charges, and total charges (ED plus inpatient episodes) among the 97 clients brought into the program during 2006 and 2007.

Healthy Communities Access Program (Federal)

From 2000 to 2006, the Community Access Program and its successor, the Healthy Communities Access Program (HCAP), provided federal grants to local communities to strengthen and integrate health care services to improve quality and health outcomes for the uninsured. CHOICE Regional Health Network received an HCAP grant in 2001. Read the National Opinion Research Center's (NORC) independent evaluation of HCAP's outcomes.

Lessons from Local Access Initiatives: Contributions and Challenges - The Commonwealth Fund, August 2007

Abstract: Community health initiatives — locally crafted responses to health care access problems — have been steadfast in their efforts to connect uninsured and medically indigent people to health care services and health insurance. These programs assist in outreach, coordinate and integrate care, and help clients use limited resources efficiently. This report offers five case studies of community health initiatives. All five local community initiatives seek to improve access and coverage for those most likely to be uninsured: low-income, non elderly adults. Some, like Community Health Works in Forsyth, GA., offer coverage for a limited period of time, often for individuals who seek care after contracting an illness, while others, like CHOICE Regional Health Network, in Olympia, Wash., manage care for clients with complex needs, chaperoning them through systems they characteristically have trouble navigating.
