33 Which Paths for the Palm Drive District? Exploring Health Care Opportunities for West County 33

34 The Palm Drive District is a Community Asset A centrally-located, well-designed facility that is handicapped accessible, seismically safe, with adequate parking 34 Annual tax revenues are $4m Some medical and facility equipment remain Infrastructure to support a sophisticated telemedicine program Ability to educate and mobilize your community in support of health programs and policies

35 Criteria for Community Services o Responsive to community health needs o Within the District’s powers o Regulatory requirements can be reasonably met o Financially viable 35

36 Criteria for Community Services o Good value: benefit is proportionate to cost o Synergy: Align other health programs and organizations to increase impact o Proven models: evaluated for effectiveness, succeeding in other communities 36

37 Highly Recommended Community-Based Services Emergency services including “Save Lives Sonoma” and/or HeartSafe Urgent Care Center(s) Outpatient Services Health Programs for Seniors Healthy Schools Initiatives Prevention and Wellness Mental Health Services 37

38 Emergency and Ambulance Services Work with Coastal Valley EMS to document any EMS transport issues and define solutions Support the HeartSafe and/or “Save Lives Sonoma” 38

39 “Save Lives Sonoma” Mission: Train 100% of Sonoma County residents in “hands-only CPR” which is easy and quick to learn Bystander CPR triples the survival rate for cardiac arrest but sadly 89% don’t receive it The entire district could benefit; especially rural areas 39

40 “Save Lives Sonoma” Partners 40

41 Urgent Care Center Urgent Care could be provided in Sebastopol and/or in Guerneville 41

42 What does Urgent Care Offer? MDs diagnose, treat, and triage patients; Appointments not needed, extended hours 42 Can do sutures, can cast some fractures May have access to specialty consults/referrals District $ support could help assure access for all May have sophisticated imaging and lab

43 Support Outpatient Services West County Health Centers: a great potential partner 43 Federal funds helps pay WCHCs for care provided to the uninsured; Medi-Cal pays higher, cost-based rate WCHC could expand Dental Services beyond their Guerneville Dental Clinic Could expand clinic to Bodega Bay, other locations Could expand outpatient Mental Health services Could provide mobile services, home visits, and/or school-based health clinics

44 Other Possible Outpatient Supports Improve coordination between Santa Rosa hospitals and local primary care providers 44 Support physician retention and recruitment Create local access to imaging and more immediate lab reports

45 Health Programs for Seniors and People with Disabilities Health issues were by far the biggest concern of Sonoma County seniors who participated in the AAA needs assessment survey and focus groups 45

46 The Silver Surge: Seniors 46 Population

47 Seniors: A Priority Population At least 1,000 District Residents are over 85 Approximately 50% of the District Hospital’s services were for Medicare patients Annual health care costs for seniors are 3 to 5 times the cost for a younger person 47

48 There are Options! Chronic conditions can be prevented; decline and disability can be delayed or prevented A continuum of health-related services can support healthy aging and minimize use of acute medical care services The challenge is to apply what we know and build services for our communities 48

49 Healthy Aging Programs Need Support Case management and referral Transportation to medical care Adult Day Health Center Mental health services (depression) Palliative Care, Home Care Residential Hospice Services Nutrition support Alzheimer's services for patients and caregivers Caregiver education and respite Chronic disease education, monitoring, treatment Telephone check-in calls, friendly visitors 49

50 Adult Day Health Centers Provide a diverse program of health, social and rehabilitation services that: Maximize independence for participants Improve management of chronic conditions Prevent hospitalization and premature nursing home placement Offer support and respite to caregivers 50

51 Adult Day Health Centers Participants attend 1 - 5 days/week Medical services include nursing, PT, OT, speech, wound care, meds management, transportation, meals, nutrition counseling Social activities make attendance a highlight in participants’ lives 51

52 Linkages, Care Management, Home Visiting “Linkages:” short-term information, referral, problem-solving Care Management: On-going, home visiting and care management by professionals MSSP: Intensive home visiting for frail elderly; Nurses and social workers use flexible funds to buy services, help clients remain at home. MSSP has 122 slots but “always a waiting list” 52

53 Healthy Schools Initiative: The Facts Add Up Establishing healthy behaviors during childhood is more effective than trying to change unhealthy behaviors in adulthood Health related factors such as physical and emotional abuse, hunger, and chronic illness can lead to poor school performance 53

54 Healthy Schools Initiative: Eight Possible Elements 1.Health Education 2.Physical Education 3.Health Services 4.Nutrition 5.Counseling and Mental Health 6.Healthy and safe school environment 7.Health promotion opportunities for school staff 8.Family and community involvement 54

55 Healthy Schools: Focusing on Teens Schools, parents, teens, communities address risk and support health for adolescents: Alcohol and other drugs Accidents, injuries Criminal behavior, gangs, violence Teen pregnancy, STDs, HIV School failure, unemployment Bullying, isolation Depression, mental illness, suicide 55

56 Youth Involvement is Key Forestville Teen Clinic, supported by WCHC Run by teens for teens; services include mental health, peer education, family planning and after school snacks! Analy High School 1:4:1 Club A youth led organization whose motto is “Living Better. Their 4 focus areas are bullying, diet and obesity, stress, and gratitude 56

57 Prevention and Wellness Keeping people healthy is a strategic means to reduce cost and improve the quality of care Communities need entities to coordinate and manage prevention and wellness programs The District could fill this need in West County and focus on prevention and wellness 57

58 Why Prevention Matters We are shifting from acute to chronic conditions 80% of today’s healthcare costs are for treating chronic yet preventable diseases. Diabetes medical treatment now costs $176 billion 40% of US deaths have preventable causes: poor diet, tobacco use, substance abuse, physical inactivity, violence, unintentional injury 58

59 Prevention Programs Across the Lifespan Sonoma County is rich in prevention programs; help them expand into and serve West County Home visiting for high-risk pregnant women and/or those with newborns e.g. The Nurse Family Partnership Screen for Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)and refer for early intervention and treatment Prevent falls in the elderly: 17% of county residents over 65, fell to the ground more than once last year; falls can be fatal 59

60 Community Mental Health Services The ACA requires health insurance coverage for mental health & substance abuse services Options to expand Mental Health in West County: o Reduce stigma to encourage use of services o Expand access to outpatient counseling o Support professionally-facilitated groups o Screen for depression among at-risk populations o Use telemedicine to enable remote visits o Support day treatment services 60

61 Mental Health for Youth and Seniors Healthy “IDEAS” (Identifying Depression, Empowering Activities for Seniors). Proven program for depression screening, suicide prevention, counseling and case management Support School-based Mental Health Services for kids and parents o CAPE, Success Plus+ now in high schools o Additional school-based MH counselors, groups o Parenting groups 61

62 Next Steps Exploring Health Care Opportunities for West County 62

63 Invest Wisely Decide if the District will financially support or directly provide a community service Consider providing start-up support for a service that can become self sustaining Be entrepreneurial: generate grants, fees, donations, contracts, volunteers Plan for accountability: track activities, measure outcomes, determine client satisfaction 63

64 Moving Forward with Community Services Prioritize populations, regions and/or services 64 Learn more by sponsoring presentations Create a business plan for selected new services Appoint subcommittees or work with existing groups to prioritize and define in more detail Issue an RFP or negotiate a contract

65 65 Community-Based services can contribute to a bright future for Palm Drive Health Care District
