Health Systems Improvement
The Bureau of Primary Health Care depends on primary care associations in each state to provide comprehensive training and technical assistance to thousands of health centers across the country. Mindful of this responsibility, the Hawai‘i Primary Care Association endeavors to provide a wide array of programs and development opportunities that meet the health system improvement expectations by the Bureau, while also being responsive to the operational needs of Hawai‘i’s network of Community Health Centers.
Our major work in this area focuses on improvements in system quality and health outcomes, expansion and meaningful use of health information technology, and the development of strategic partnerships between health centers and other organizations to address statewide public health challenges.
In addition, HPCA’s Training and Technical Assistance division manages large-scale grant programs like the Primary Care Integration Initiative and the DP1422 CDC Grant, which leverage our strengths in both health systems and collaboration.
