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.
Southcentral Foundation is continually striving to realize its vision and execute its mission, and is assisted in this by several elements of its corporate structure. One of these is SCF’s Operational Principles.
Southcentral Foundation’s vision is a Native Community that enjoys physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness. SCF works with customer-owners to ensure that all of those aspects of wellness are achieved.
Southcentral Foundation’s facilities are designed to be beautiful and to reflect Alaska Native culture, with spaces for the display of Alaska Native art. SCF’s facility design also promotes focus on relationships, not only with customer-owners, but also between employees.
