Health care organizations have more data than ever and are struggling to determine what to measure and how to use it for improvement. Data is a critical component of decision-making in health care, and ensuring that accurate data is used properly is necessary for any reform effort a system might undertake.

At Southcentral Foundation, we have been practicing relationship-based care for two decades. Customer-owners choose their own providers and are always free to choose another if they wish to, but most customer-owners stay with the same providers and form strong, long-term relationships.

Southcentral Foundation would like to thank everyone who attended the 8th Annual Nuka System of Care Conference. This year, over 150 people attended the conference, coming from many different places in Alaska and the United States, as well as other countries such as Canada, Singapore, and New Zealand.
