In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, SCF’s Learning Institute has launched a new virtual option for site visits.

To support care team members in working at the top of their licenses, and to give the Alaska Native community more of a voice in how the organization is run, SCF employs non-clinical workers as clinical managers.

At Southcentral Foundation, the management style used in the Nuka System of Care works to reinforce the core values of the system while allowing flexibility for care teams and avoiding micromanagement.

The Team Performance Training is designed to help individuals and teams achieve better team dynamics and performance.

Coaching and Mentoring Program Overview

Southcentral Foundation’s Learning Institute has published a new white paper, “Nuka Approach to Data and Information Management Strategies.” This white paper details how SCF has reformed its data practices to provide up-to-date data that is quickly actionable for end users.

Southcentral Foundation utilizes an approach to telehealth that takes advantage of its relationship-based system of care that delivers quality care to customer-owners without the need for face-to-face visits.

The Learning Institute is making available a selection of documents detailing various aspects of how SCF has been addressing COVID-19. Access is free for all who are interested.

With the COVID-19 pandemic limiting opportunities for in-person consultation, Southcentral Foundation’s Learning Institute has launched a suite of virtual consulting opportunities. These virtual consultations are arranged on an hourly basis, and offer the opportunity to connect with SCF subject matter experts on a variety of topics.

The COVID-19 pandemic is a crisis that has heavily impacted healthcare organizations around the world, Southcentral Foundation included, and SCF’s leadership has taken care to regularly communicate with employees during this time.

Southcentral Foundation is introducing Nuka Fireside Chats, a series of interactive discussions with SCF leadership and key subject matter experts. These interactive hour-long sessions will be hosted online, free of charge for anyone who wishes to participate. The goal of the sessions is to share best practices for the benefit of other health care organizations which may be experiencing rapid change due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
