The achievement citation is one of cha's highest honors reserved for outstanding programs that transform lives.the transitional respite care for the homeless program provides a post-discharge environment for people who are homeless to recuperate, and would otherwise return to life of the streets before they are fully healed. It received this premier award for original, bold, innovative programming that delivers measurable results for communities it serves in spokane. The program is reducing the demand on emergency services, saving resources that are being redistributed for important services, and helping improve the overall health of the community.as health care continues to evolve to meet the needs of consumers, providence is using technology to invite more people through the front doors of our clinics - this can be a virtual invitation in the form of an online visit via cellphone or laptop, or in person at a retail express care site in walgreens.at the same time, we recognize that the real benefit of primary care is the long term relationship that patients develop with their physician and care team. It's this relationship that allows us to address the ongoing health and wellness of our patients and communities. The more we can use digital technology to connect patients to their care team, the better we will be at taking care of entire populations over time.our medical group leaders have partnered with the digital innovation group to test new, patient-centric technology and tools that transform the way care is delivered and cement the relationship between care teams and patients after they have chosen to walk through the doors of a providence clinic.the on demand health platform, open notes and the circle app for new moms are three new tools we are exploring to connect with patients and build enduring relationships.currently only patients who have a mychart account are able to schedule appointments online. Soon, with a new scheduling tool called the on demand health platform, anyone will be able to schedule an appointment online. The tool provides consumers with more options for accessing care when and where they need it. Circle is another new tool that is improving the connection between patients and providers. Circle is a free smartphone app by providence and swedish for expectant and new moms in portland, everett, and seattle; expanding to other service areas in 2017. Patients can get personalized pregnancy and newborn information, check off weekly to-dos, connect with mychart, and find after-hours care and breast feeding support through secure video chat with express care virtual. New moms love the app because it puts the information they want at their fingertips - from both a medical and a non-medical perspective. Providers love the app because it helps them stay in touch with their patients outside of traditional office visits.another patient-centric tool that encourages patients to be more engaged in their care is open notes. It gives patients the ability to view their entire medical record - from problem lists to progress notes - online. The expanded access allows patients to be fuller partners in their health care and enables them to have better, more informed conversations with their provider. Our employed providers are leading the way forward as we meet our consumers' demand for convenient access to quality and affordable health care from a provider they know and trust. Traditionally, our industry has mainly relied on two ways for patients to access our services when they are needed. One, primary/urgent care in doctor offices, or two, emergency rooms in hospitals. Across our organization, our providers are making remarkable changes for the on-demand experience in health care, so that making a diagnosis and providing treatment is as quick, simple and convenient as ordering a pizza or catching a ride across town. In fact, we believe our health system is the only one in the nation currently offering an entire suite of on-demand services, which include:1. Walk-in clinics at freestanding locations and walgreens stores2. Offering instant online visits 3. Bringing back the house callthe main reason we are able to offer these three alternatives is because our own providers are bold enough to practice medicine in a different way within the new era. Express care clinics as an alternative to being seen in a doctor's office, our patients now have the option of being seen 7 days per week, 12 hours a day on the same day, by either walking in or scheduling on line. Our express care walk-in clinics are staffed by highly qualified nurse practitioners inside walgreens stores or at standalone express care clinic sites. This offers the best of both worlds: convenience and care you can trust.express care at hometoday, our providers are driving to homes, offices or hotel rooms to treat common conditions such as headaches, sprains and allergies. Consumers can also get a routine physical by paying $199 a visit, or the cost of their copay or coinsurance. This cost is upfront and transparent. Express care virtualthis allows our providers to connect with consumers in the palm of their hands via a smartphone, tablet or computer and is available seven days a week, 8 a.m. To midnight. These secure, online visits cost $39 and are often covered by insurance.

He helps children cope by providing a reassuring presence during interviews, medical exams and therapy sessions at the providence st. Peter sexual assault clinic and child maltreatment center in lacey, wash. The center is the only one of its kind in the five-county area. What makes it so unique is that community agencies and services are all co-located at the clinic, including legal resources through monarch children's justice and advocacy center. This collaboration provides young victims and families one location to receive care and services, preventing repeated trauma from having to share their story multiple times.each year, the center serves more than 350 patients and their families, thanks to a $1 million community investment by providence. Sadly, statistics show that one in five children will be sexually abused by the age of 18, and most are victims of someone they know and trust. To protect vulnerable children, the center provides free education workshops with support from the providence st. Peter foundation. Since 2008, more than 800 community members have been trained to recognize and respond to signs of abuse.providence's community health needs assessment identified poverty and related issues such as adequate housing as an area of great need. Without a warm bed to recuperate, vulnerable patients returning to life on the streets would face a high risk for re-hospitalization.about 450 nights of shelter have been provided through this program since it began in 2015 thanks to providence's $500,000 community investment. The program is starting small with two to four beds so it can be developed properly and link participants to social and behavioral health services that change lives for the better. In partnership with daybreak youth services, access to inpatient and outpatient care is provided for free to children and families in their time of need. Once the youth's condition was stabilized at the hospital, they went directly to the daybreak facility where she received treatment for addiction and therapy to overcome the emotional pain of their past. Providence has provided more than 200 rapid response referrals to treatment and 90 percent of the young patients have completed or are still engaged in treatment. The program fulfills important needs in the spokane county, wash. Community for mental health and substance abuse issues. Providence's annual community investment of $50,000 makes possible the critical coordination of care and services essential to the success and sobriety for teens in recovery.
