process from a local group that assists startups and has relationships, PR capability, etc. In 2017 Aloha Health is approaching health systems
and insurance companies (MA/HMOs) that understand not only the social good of serving the Aloha Health population but also the
business benefits by addressing the care needs of the underserved.
Is there a fee for referrals? No. Patients will be given a choice of available resources.
