Services are valued


Independence to make own medical choices

Mostly engaging and friendly staff

“Health center” sounds better than “clinic”

Some walked in; others had to wait 3 weeks for an appointment

Average 5 minutes hold time

No one wants to go see a doctor

Lack of privacy of SBHC’s and staff

Atmosphere of tension between patients

Lack of maps for those unfamiliar with the school

Research Methods
  • 9 Focus Groups
  • Secret Shopper Survey
  • Oregon School Based Health-Care Network Conference
  • Multnomah County Health Fair
  • Marketing Material Review
marketing material results
Marketing Material Results
  • Main method of receiving information is word-of-mouth
  • Flyers, posters, assemblies, and health teacher visits also spread information
  • Flyers and posters found to be bland and not “eye-catching”
  • Students’ health care rights are not covered in marketing materials
  • Students prefer to hear about SBHCs from people their age
privacy recommendations
Privacy Recommendations
  • Keep door closed for privacy
  • Separate the receptionist and the waiting area
    • Use a privacy screen of some sort
  • Allow the patients to write down their reason for visiting
    • Use a checklist of common ailments in several languages so more people can use it
      • MYC is willing to help with the translations
    • Use a dry-erase board to cut down on paper use
privacy recommendations1
Privacy Recommendations
  • Do not mention health issues in the halls or the lobby if possible
    • Do not engage with students in public unless they engage with you first
    • If students need to get a message from the SBHC, do not talk with them in the hallways—send a note to their class asking them to go to the office. The office can then redirect them to the SBHC
    • Ask for students’ phone numbers when they first sign up so that the SBHC can text them reminders about appointments etc.
environment recommendations
Environment Recommendations
  • Make the music more youth-friendly
    • No oldies stations
    • If necessary, make the volume of the radio stations louder so that there is more privacy
    • Recommendations for radio stations: 100.3, 107.5
    • Ask a student group to make a mix CD to play in the SBHCs
  • Colors
    • Warmer colors
    • Try to make the rooms “less sterile” – avoid plain white walls
    • Avoid fluorescent lights
environment recommendations1
Environment Recommendations
  • Put up plenty of posters
  • Have magazines that would appeal to students
    • Spin, Teen Vogue, Vibe, ESPN Rise, other sports-related magazines
    • Have local alternative newspapers distributed in the office

marketing recommendations
Marketing Recommendations

  • Compare its service model to that of an ordinary clinic
  • Posters

marketing recommendations1
Marketing Recommendations
  • Peer-to-Peer Marketing
    • Use slightly older people to publicize SBHCs rather than other high school students or older adults
    • Attract college students through partnerships with premed programs, health outreach programs, or Americorps

    • Have an advisory body which is filled with students who know a lot about SBHCs and can direct their peers there

      • Involve health teachers in the process
