A blood pressure clinic in a health centre. (1/789)

Following a screening survey for hypertension in Renfrew, a blood pressure clinic was established in a health centre. Three hospital doctors, each working an average of two sessions weekly, saw 368 patients. A specially trained nurse played an important part in the running of the clinic. Attendance of patients was high, and defaulting amongst those needing treatment was low. Blood pressures were well controlled in 75% of the patients. The clinic has proved an acceptable method of managing large numbers of hypertensives without reference to hospital.  (+info)

Indigenous perceptions and quality of care of family planning services in Haiti. (2/789)

This paper presents a method for evaluating and monitoring the quality of care of family planning services. The method was implemented in Haiti by International Planned Parenthood Federation Western Hemisphere Region (IPPF/WHR), the managerial agency for the Private Sector Family Planning Project (PSFPP), which is sponsored by the USAID Mission. The process consists of direct observations of family planning services and clinic conditions by trained Haitian housewives playing the role of 'mystery clients', who visit clinics on a random basis without prior notice. Observations conducted by mystery clients during one year, from April 1990 to April 1991, are presented and illustrate the use of the method. In addition, measurements for rating the acceptability of the services were developed, providing a quantitative assessment of the services based on mystery clients' terms. Statistical results demonstrate that simulated clients ranked some criteria of acceptability higher than others. These criteria are: the interaction provider/client, information adequacy, and competence of the promoter. Likewise, simulated clients' direct observations of the services permitted the identification of deficiencies regarding the quality of care such as the paternalistic attitudes of the medical staff; the lack of competence of promoters; and the lack of informed choice. Based on its reliability since its implementation in 1990 the method has proven to be a useful tool in programme design and monitoring.  (+info)

Micro-level planning using rapid assessment for primary health care services. (3/789)

This paper describes the use of a rapid assessment technique in micro-level planning for primary health care services which has been developed in India. This methodology involves collecting household-level data through a quick sample survey to estimate client needs, coverage of services and unmet need, and using this data to formulate micro-level plans aimed at improving service coverage and quality for a primary health centre area. Analysis of the data helps to identify village level variations in unmet need and develop village profiles from which general interventions for overall improvement of service coverage and targeted interventions for selected villages are identified. A PHC area plan is developed based on such interventions. This system was tried out in 113 villages of three PHC centres of a district in Gujarat state of India. It demonstrated the feasibility and utility of this approach. However, it also revealed the barriers in the institutionalization of the system on a wider scale. The proposed micro-level planning methodology using rapid assessment would improve client-responsiveness of the health care system and provide a basis for increased decentralization. By focusing attention on under-served areas, it would promote equity in the use of health services. It would also help improve efficiency by making it possible to focus efforts on a small group of villages which account for most of the unmet need for services in an area. Thus the proposed methodology seems to be a feasible and an attractive alternative to the current top-down, target-based health planning in India.  (+info)

Community asthma clinics: 1993 survey of primary care by the National Asthma Task Force. (4/789)

OBJECTIVES: To establish a baseline of work done in primary care asthma clinics in the United Kingdom and to assess the degree of clinical delegation to nurses and the appropriateness of their training. DESIGN: Prospective questionnaire survey of asthma care in general practices and a subsidiary survey of all family health services authorities (FHSAs) of the number of asthma clinics in their area. SETTING: All 14,251 general practices in the United Kingdom and 117 FHSAs or health boards (Scotland and Northern Ireland). RESULTS: Questionnaires were returned by 4327 (30.4%) general practices, 54% being completed by practice nurses and 22% by general practitioners; in 24% profession was not stated. In all, 77.2% (3339/4327) of respondents ran an asthma clinic. 60 FHSAs state the number of asthma clinics at the time of the general practice survey (total 3653 clinics); within responding FHSAs 1702 (46.6%) practices running an asthma clinic replied to the general practice survey. Clinics exclusive for patients with asthma mostly occurred in practices with five or more general practitioners (70.2%), compared with single-handed practices (31.7%). The average number of asthma clinics run per practice was five a month; the average duration was 2 hours and 20 minutes. 1131 (48.8%) nurses ran clinics by themselves, 1180 (47.9%) with the doctor, and 39 (1.7%) had no medical input. Comprehensive questioning occurred other than for nasal (872, 26.1%) or oesophageal (335, 10.0%) symptoms and use of aspirin and non-steroidal drugs (1161, 33.4%). Growth in children was measured by only a third of respondents. Of the 1131 nurses who ran clinics alone, 251 (22.2%) did so without formal training entailing assessment. CONCLUSION: Asthma clinics are now common in general practice and much of their work is done by nurses, a significant minority of whom may not have had sufficient training. IMPLICATIONS: As this survey is probably biased toward the more asthma aware practices, greater deficiencies in training and standards may exist in other practices. Further evaluation of the effectiveness of asthma clinics is needed.  (+info)

User charges in government health facilities in Kenya: effect on attendance and revenue. (5/789)

In this paper we study demand effects of user charges in a district health care system using cross-sectional data from household and facility surveys. The effects are examined in public as well as in private health facilities. We also look briefly at the impact of fees on revenue and service quality in government facilities. During the period of cost-sharing in public clinics, attendance dropped by about 50%. This drop prompted the government to suspend the fees for approximately 20 months. Over the 7 months after suspension of fees, attendance at government health centres increased by 41%. The suspension further caused a notable movement of patients from the private sector to government health facilities. The revenue generated by user fees covered 2.4% of the recurrent health budget. Some 40% of the facilities did not spend the fee revenue they collected, mainly due to cumbersome procedures of expenditure approvals. The paper concludes with lessons from Kenya's experience with user charges.  (+info)

Quality of primary outpatient services in Dar-es-Salaam: a comparison of government and voluntary providers. (6/789)

This study aimed to test whether voluntary agencies provide care of better quality than that provided by government with respect to primary curative outpatient services in Dar-es-Salaam. All non-government primary services were included, and government primary facilities were randomly sampled within the three districts of the city. Details of consultations were recorded and assessed by a panel who classed consultations as adequate, inadequate but serious consequences unlikely, and consultations where deficiencies in the care could have serious consequences. Interpersonal conduct was assessed and exit interviews were conducted. The study found that government registers of non-government 'voluntary' providers actually contained a high proportion of for-profit private providers. Comparisons between facilities showed that care was better overall at voluntary providers, but that there was a high level of inadequate care at both government and non-government providers.  (+info)

Measuring time utilization in rural health centres. (7/789)

OBJECTIVES: During the recent re-design of the primary health care system in Cameroon a time-motion study was undertaken to determine how health workers at rural health centres use their time before redefining their roles. METHODS: The study developed a simple, effective and inexpensive tool which uses the activity sampling technique, and was applied to 20 health centres with a total of 19,080 observations being made of 64 health workers who represented all grades of worker in the government health services. RESULTS: The study developed a clear picture of how health centre staff apportion their time, and how the division of labour and tasks is carried out in a rural health centre. It found that only 27% of health workers' time is currently being spent on productive, health-related activities, and of this time, the largest proportion is spent on curative, clinical work. Less than 1% of health workers' time is spent on preventive and outreach activities. DISCUSSION: This study has developed a simple and inexpensive tool which can be used in any health facility to determine how health-related activities are carried out. This is an important step if changes in the delivery structure are to be made, because it establishes the discrepancy between expected and actual behaviour, and provides an important baseline for the evaluation of the effectiveness of any changes that are introduced within the system.  (+info)

Primary health care, community participation and community-financing: experiences of two middle hill villages in Nepal. (8/789)

Although community involvement in health related activities is generally acknowledged by international and national health planners to be the key to the successful organization of primary health care, comparatively little is known about its potential and limitations. Drawing on the experiences of two middle hill villages in Nepal, this paper reports on research undertaken to compare and contrast the scope and extent of community participation in the delivery of primary health care in a community run and financed health post and a state run and financed health post. Unlike many other health posts in Nepal these facilities do provide effective curative services, and neither of them suffer from chronic shortage of drugs. However, community-financing did not appear to widen the scope and the extent of participation. Villagers in both communities relied on the health post for the treatment of less than one-third of symptoms, and despite the planners' intentions, community involvement outside participation in benefits was found to be very limited.  (+info)

Because of the shortage of qualified health care administrators who are members of minority groups, many neighborhood health centers, organized as a result of the Great Society legislation of the 1960s, suffered from their staffs lack of administrative skills and from rapid turnover as staff members gained experience and moved upward to other jobs. To rectify this shortage, the National Association of Neighborhood Health Centers was funded to offer masters degree programs at the University of Michigan and the University of Southern California. These on job/on campus programs, which began in 1972, allowed participants to work and study concurrently. At Michigan, students attended class 8 hours a day, 4 days a month, for 2 years. At U.S.C., they attended classes for 14 consecutive days 3 times a year for 2 years. Since the usual admission requirements of established graduate programs limit access of minority students, who frequently lack adequate educational backgrounds, admission criteria were ...

The number of private physicians in the area has increased from 20 to 200. The area is served by the San Francisco General Hospital and St. Lukes Hospital, both with outpatient clinics, and the Southeast Ambulatory Health Center.

Community Health Centers began with a demonstration project under President Lyndon B. Johnsons War on Poverty. Today, they have grown into the largest and most successful primary care system in the country, reaching one in every 14 people in the United States and serving 25 million people annually. In 2015-16, Americas community health centers celebrated 50 years of providing comprehensive, high-quality, accessible and affordable primary and preventive healthcare services to uninsured and medically vulnerable people at more than 9,200 locations in urban and rural communities across the country. Health centers today increase access, reduce disparities, improve outcomes and reduce health care costs. Community health centers save the healthcare system approximately $28.8 billion annually. In addition to generating substantial cost savings for the health care system, health centers also boost the economic health of the communities they serve through job creation; in 2014, community health centers ...

WASHINGTON, DC and NEW YORK (Nov. 18, 2013)-A new report by the Geiger Gibson/RCHN Community Health Foundation Research Collaborative at the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services (SPHHS) examines the impact of federal and state policy decisions on community health centers (CHCs) and their ability to continue providing primary care to the nations poorest residents. The report, How Medicaid Expansions and Future Community Health Center Funding Will Shape Capacity to Meet the Nations Primary Care Needs, estimates that under a worst-case scenario, the nations health centers would be forced to contract, leaving an estimated 1 million low-income people without access to health care services by the year 2020..

Primary care, the largest health care delivery platform in the United States, is widely regarded as a natural point of integration and coordination between clinical care and public health, behavioral health, and community services.16 Recognition of and attention to non-medical factors that influence health are not new concepts in primary care. Some primary care clinics in the early 1900s employed peer health aides and provided recreation and welfare activities for their communities, as well as more formal health care services.17 These early health centers focused on health promotion and education, seeking to address poor nutrition and other SDH.17 The recognition that social determinants influence health fueled the creation of community-oriented primary care concepts in the 1940s,18-20 the development of family medicine as a medical specialty in the late 1960s,21,22 the passage of legislation to create the neighborhood Health Center Program in 1964 (predecessor to federally qualified health ...

Federally Qualified Health Centers are expanding to increase access for millions of more Americans with a goal of doubling capacity to serve 40 million people. Health centers provide a lot of behavioral health services but many have difficulty accessing mental health and substance use professionals for their patients. To meet the needs of the underserved and newly insured it is important to better estimate how many behavioral health professionals are needed. Using health center staffing data and behavioral health service patterns from the 2010 Uniform Data System and the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, we estimated the number of patients likely to need behavioral health care by insurance type, the number of visits likely needed by health center patients annually, and the number of full time equivalent providers needed to serve them. More than 2.5 million patients, 12 or older, with mild or moderate mental illness, and more than 357,000 with substance abuse disorders, may have gone without

TUESDAY, April 28 (HealthDay News) -- American heart patients who receive their primary care at a community health clinic are less likely to be referred for a consultation with a cardiologist than patients who receive their primary care at a hospital.. This difference is especially true among women, say researchers who reviewed the electronic medical records of 9,761 adult heart patients who received community clinic-based or hospital-based care between 2000 and 2005.. The overall rates for cardiology consultations were 79.6 percent for patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and 90.3 percent for congestive heart failure (CHF) patients, said the researchers from Harvard Medical School and the U.S. National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).. However, patients seen at community health clinics were less likely (CAD patients 21 percent less, and CHF patients 23 percent less) to receive an initial cardiology consultation than those treated at hospital clinics.. Women with CAD and CHF were ...
It is estimated that each year 1 out of 4 teenagers becomes infected with a sexually transmitted disease (STD), which may include chlamydia, herpes, human papillomavirus, or HIV. Teenagers are especially vulnerable to STD infections because of a lack of education about proper condom use and consequences of sexual risk behaviors, including pregnancy. In addition to the high prevalence of STD infection, teen pregnancy remains a health concern for young women, with 31% of young women in the United States becoming pregnant before the age of 20. Transmission of STDs from a pregnant woman to her baby is possible before, during, and after birth, making it particularly important to inform young pregnant women about STDs. A group prenatal care treatment program that incorporates HIV/STD prevention education, called CenteringPregnancy Plus (CP+), has shown success in reducing sexual risk behaviors in an academic setting, but its effectiveness at Community Health Centers (CHCs) serving women at high risk ...

Human papilloma virus (HPV) is the name of a group of viruses that affect the skin. There are over 100 different types of HPV. Many types can cause warts on the hands or feet. These types are rarely transmitted through sexual contact. There are about 30 different types that are transmitted through sex and are considered sexually transmitted infections (STI).. HPV is a very common virus. Experts estimate that 70% of sexually active people have had HPV. Most will never develop symptoms. Those with symptoms may notice external genital warts. These are growths or bumps that appear in and around the vagina, anus, cervix, penis, scrotum or groin. They may be raised or flat, single or multiple, small or large. Other symptoms may include itching, pain or bleeding. An abnormal pap test may be the first sign that HPV infection is present. This is called subclinical infection. Symptoms may appear within weeks of contact, but it may takes months or years for symptoms to develop. This makes it hard for you ...

In my role working directly with health center staff to prepare them for value-based payment arrangements, I have witnessed how much work it takes to move the needle on patient care. From Electronic Medical Records to staff turnover to new clinical guidelines, the challenges facing health centers are numerous. Nonetheless, the health centers in Connecticut have far surpassed the goals set for them 4 years ago at the start of the Connecticut Practice Transformation Network (PTN).. Among the 31 PTNs across the country, the Connecticut PTN is the only one that focuses solely on health centers and health center patients, who tend to have more challenges than the general population. Yet, the CT PTN ranked the third highest for reducing hospitalizations and second highest for cost savings. As of March, 2019, the health centers in Connecticut have collectively surpassed the 5 commitments the PTN made to CMS: decreasing hospital utilization, reducing antibiotic prescriptions for Upper Respiratory ...

Being an important part of Chinas Urban Health Care Reform System, Community Health Centers (CHCs) have been established throughout the entire country and are presently undergoing substantial reconstruction. However, the services being delivered by the CHCs are far from reaching their performance targets. In order to assess the role of the CHCs, we examined their performance in six cities located in regions of South-East China. The purpose of this investigation was to identify the utilization and the efficiency of community health resources that are able to provide basic medical and public health services. The study was approved by Peking University Health Science Center Institutional Reviewing Board (NO: IRB00001052-T1). Data were collected from all the local health bureaux and processed using SPSS software. Methods of analysis mainly included: descriptive analysis, paired T-test and one-way ANOVA.

Medicaid provides 1/4 of all funding for mental health care.. Doesnt the Medicaid program cost a lot of money? Yes it does.
