Aloha Health is partnering with the Sullivan Alliance and other organizations to carry out projects that reduce health disparities, improve social determinants, and explore funding opportunities. The Aloha Health pilot project will validate the following paradigm:
"A Business Strategy Providing a Patient Centered Medical Home for Underserved and Under-Utilizers of
Health Care Services that Allows Organizations to Achieve Their Mission and Margin”
The Aloha Health pilot project calls for the project team to intervene early by working with proven and trusted community leaders who team with clinical cases workers to bring residents into care before a crisis occurs. The Aloha Health strategy of connecting trusted community leaders with community health workers replaces expensive emergency care with less costly but profit generating preventive care. The proposed pilot project fits well with community health care funded efforts by creating a local coordinated system of care and strengthening the infrastructure of the health safety net.
