Southcentral Foundation Board Member Sophia Chase was one of the major advocates for SCF to establish a traditional healing clinic. There has also been a consistent, huge demand from customer-owners for these services.
Southcentral Foundation has several upcoming Nuka trainings outside of Alaska, which provide an opportunity to learn about SCF’s Malcolm Baldrige Award-winning Nuka System of Care for people who may have previously been unable to do so due to the time or expense involved in traveling to Alaska.
As part of our whole system transformation, Southcentral Foundation has customized and implemented an onboarding process that has several goals. The onboarding process is aimed at supporting SCF’s mission and vision, increasing employee retention and satisfaction, and promoting career development throughout the workforce.
Southcentral Foundation’s methods of data collection, as well as how SCF uses data for improvement, have been previously discussed on this blog. However, SCF also makes tools available to customer-owners so that they can use data for their benefit as well. One of these tools is My AK Wellness.
Providing health care in rural areas can be quite challenging. Depending on the location, accessibility, high cost of living, harsh weather conditions, and/or lack of infrastructure are all factors that can make it much more difficult to provide needed health care services to people in those areas.
