The Access to Healthcare Subcommittee was formed in response to identifying improving access to healthcare as a health priority in the 2014 Community Health Assessment.  Thus far, the Access to Healthcare Subcommittee has focused on the following action items:

  • Promote and coordinate enrollment for the Health Insurance Marketplace
  • Plan and implement a coordinated marketing and education campaign of safety net provider services for primary care of uninsured residents
  • Conduct a needs assessment to identify gaps (geographical, trust, cost, etc.) and opportunities in medical transportation, and conduct a media campaign to promote available services

Future work will include conducting a network analysis and planning an interagency fair to ensure improved coordination of services across the county as well as examining non-emergency and primary care visits to the Chatham Hospital Emergency Department to explore ways to connect these patients to a healthcare home.
