It can often be difficult to provide quality health care in remote locations, and behavioral health is no exception to this. Southcentral Foundation has a considerable amount of experience with this; in addition to providing health care services for customer-owners in Anchorage and the Matanuska-Susitna Valley, SCF is also responsible for providing care in 55 rural villages in the Anchorage Service Unit.
Dr. Jerome Adams, the United States Surgeon General, visited Southcentral Foundation this week. Dr. Adams toured the Benteh Nuutah Valley Native Primary Care Center, the Alaska Native Medical Center, and the Anchorage Native Primary Care Center.
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.
The 8th Annual Nuka System of Care Conference begins today! Southcentral Foundation is excited to welcome over 150 attendees from around the world to our campus in Anchorage, Alaska.
The Strategic Planning Software is a flexible software that helps ensure that the planning process is efficient and accomplishes the goals set by leadership and the Board of Directors.
The 8th Annual Nuka System of Care Conference Plenary and Concurrent Sessions are available on five central content areas, including Leadership, Medical Services, Behavioral Services, Data and Improvement, and Human Resources.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the system of care, designed and built from the ground up by Alaska Native people, that has improved health outcomes, reduced costs, and been nationally recognized for performance excellence, twice winning the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, in 2011 and 2017.
Southcentral Foundation hosted learning sessions on each of Baldrige’s six process categories at the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program’s 30th Anniversary Quest for Excellence Conference, offering conference attendees the opportunity to learn the ways in which SCF has established and maintained itself as a high-performing, customer-driven organization.
