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 DP1422 CDC Grant, which leverages our strengths in both health systems and collaboration.

Other Technical Assistance

HPCA regularly coordinates the annual Uniform Data System (UDS) training for health centers and look alikes. We also provide a range of technical assistance services related to Emergency Preparedness so that health centers can best plan for continuity of operations in the event of natural disasters or other environmental crisis.
