  11. CA Health Care Districts andCommunity-Based Services Exploring Health Care Opportunities for West County

  12. CA Hospital Districts • The CA Hospital District law passed in 1946 • Build and operate hospitals • Recruit and support physicians • In 1994, the Legislature renamed its statue the “Health Care District Law” in recognition of districts’ broadening responsibilities • Approximately 78 districts exist today

  13. CA Health Care Districts: Evolving Rapidly • Districts are authorized by the State to do anything “necessary for the maintenance of good physical and mental health” • About 1/3 of Districts no longer operate a hospital • Sold or leased to another entity • Used for other health-related purposes • Closed

  14. Some Districts that Don’t Operate Hospitals Beach Cities (LA) Bloss Memorial Camarillo (Ventura) Cambria (San Luis Obispo) Corning Del Puerto (Stanislaus) Desert East Kern Eden Township Fallbrook Grossmont Lindsay Los Medanos Mark Twain Mt Diablo Redbud Peninsula Petaluma Selma Sequoia

  15. Health Care: THE BIG SHIFT Fewer inpatient days due to fewer admissions and shorter stays • Financing for hospitals has changed • From ‘any willing provider’ to narrow networks • From fee-for-service to managed care • From paying for procedures to paying for outcomes Increased competition to provide hospital care to insured patients; Kaiser is key in California

  16. The BIG SHIFT Our “health system” is evolving to support: • Greater integration of providers • Primary care and outpatient services • Cost containment • Wellness and prevention

  17. Hospitals Are Evolving Too Many hospitals, both district and private provide community-based services: • To fulfill their mission of fostering health and reducing suffering • To achieve better outcomes for patients after hospitalization • To build community support • To meet payer mandates

  25. Sequoia Healthcare District HeartSafe Program: Improving the “chain of cardiac survival” in order to reduce sudden cardiac arrest deaths • 350 automated electronic defibrillators have been placed around the community wherever people gather (and exercise) • CPR and defibrillator training provided at no charge to first responders, residents, school children

  26. Sequoia Healthcare District Healthy Schools Initiative • Funding school nurses, counselors, wellness coordinators, physical education coaches and outreach specialists • Modeled on the CDC’s Coordinated School Health approach • Working with all 8 districts reaching 27,000 students, plus their parents and school personnel

  27. Camarillo Health Care District • Serves Pleasant Valley in Ventura • Founded in 1969; Hospital is now owned and operated by Dignity Health • District tax revenues are $2.1mbut annual budget is $3.7m. Very entrepreneurial!

  28.

  30. Petaluma Health Care District • Formed in 1947; hospital was leased to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital in 1997 • CHIPA, Community Health Initiative For the Petaluma Area, has a 63 member advisory board that serves as the local Health Action Chapter • CHIPA meets quarterly; its 3 work groups meet monthly to coordinate community actions and programs that achieve CHIPA’s health goals

  31. Petaluma Health Care District CHIPA’s Three Priority Areas: Cradle to Career: “our children enter kindergarten ready to succeed and are supported in and out of school” Mental & Behavioral Health: improve access to mental health and substance abuse services especially culturally responsive and language-appropriate services Wellness & Prevention: “our residents eat healthy food and are physically active”

  33. Which Paths for the Palm Drive District? Exploring Health Care Opportunities for West County

  34. The Palm Drive District is a Community Asset • A centrally-located, well-designed facility that is handicapped accessible, seismically safe, with adequate parking • Annual tax revenues are $4m • Some medical and facility equipment remain • Infrastructure to support a sophisticated telemedicine program • Ability to educate and mobilize your community in support of health programs and policies

  35. Criteria for Community Services • Responsive to community health needs • Within the District’s powers • Regulatory requirements can be reasonably met • Financially viable

  36. Criteria for Community Services • Good value: benefit is proportionate to cost • Synergy: Align other health programs and organizations to increase impact • Proven models: evaluated for effectiveness, succeeding in other communities

  37. Highly Recommended Community-Based Services • Emergency services including “Save Lives Sonoma” and/or HeartSafe • Urgent Care Center(s) • Outpatient Services • Health Programs for Seniors • Healthy Schools Initiatives • Prevention and Wellness • Mental Health Services

  38. Emergency and Ambulance Services • Work with Coastal Valley EMS to document any EMS transport issues and define solutions • Support the HeartSafe and/or “Save Lives Sonoma”

  39. “Save Lives Sonoma” • Mission: Train 100% of Sonoma County residents in “hands-only CPR” which is easy and quick to learn • Bystander CPR triples the survival rate for cardiac arrest but sadly 89% don’t receive it • The entire district could benefit; especially rural areas

  40. “Save Lives Sonoma” Partners

  41. Urgent Care Center Urgent Care could be provided in Sebastopol and/or in Guerneville

  42. What does Urgent Care Offer? • MDs diagnose, treat, and triage patients; Appointments not needed, extended hours • Can do sutures, can cast some fractures • May have sophisticated imaging and lab • May have access to specialty consults/referrals • District $ support could help assure access for all

  43. Support Outpatient Services West County Health Centers: a great potential partner • Federal funds helps pay WCHCs for care provided to the uninsured; Medi-Cal pays higher, cost-based rate • WCHC could expand Dental Services beyond their Guerneville Dental Clinic • Could expand outpatient Mental Health services • Could expand clinic to Bodega Bay, other locations • Could provide mobile services, home visits, and/or school-based health clinics

  44. Other Possible Outpatient Supports • Improve coordination between Santa Rosa hospitals and local primary care providers • Support physician retention and recruitment • Create local access to imaging and more immediate lab reports

  45. Health Programs for Seniors and People with Disabilities Health issues were by far the biggest concern of Sonoma County seniors who participated in the AAA needs assessment survey and focus groups

  46. The Silver Surge: Seniors Population

  47. Seniors: A Priority Population • At least 1,000 District Residents are over 85 • Approximately 50% of the District Hospital’s services were for Medicare patients • Annual health care costs for seniors are 3 to 5 times the cost for a younger person

  48. There are Options! • Chronic conditions can be prevented; decline and disability can be delayed or prevented • A continuum of health-related services can support healthy aging and minimize use of acute medical care services • The challenge is to apply what we know and build services for our communities

  49. Healthy Aging Programs Need Support • Case management and referral • Transportation to medical care • Adult Day Health Center • Mental health services (depression) • Palliative Care, Home Care • Residential Hospice Services • Nutrition support • Alzheimer's services for patients and caregivers • Caregiver education and respite • Chronic disease education, monitoring, treatment • Telephone check-in calls, friendly visitors

  50. Adult Day Health Centers Provide a diverse program of health, social and rehabilitation services that: • Maximize independence for participants • Improve management of chronic conditions • Prevent hospitalization and premature nursing home placement • Offer support and respite to caregivers
