Testimonials - Frank
lly, you Zumba. The Victorville resident discovered Zumba classes last year at IEHP’s Community Resource Center (CRC) and it has become one of his favorite things to do. Diagnosed with high blood pressure, Frank started visiting the CRC because he had heard it offered no-cost health and fitness classes for the community. What he found though, was so much more. “I met with a CRC Health Navigator and she was able to help me get assistance with behavioral health services, housing, even with my resume,” he said. “She also signed me up for classes like Tai Chi, Meditation and, of course, Zumba.” After several months, Frank noticed his body and his spirt were growing stronger by the day. He lost 50 pounds, learned how to eat better, got his blood pressure under control and learned important coping skills that helped him deal with depression and anxiety. “The staff is wonderful, the classes provided are outstanding and I love the fact that when you walk in, you’re treated like family,” Frank said. “When I arrive in the morning, I’m ready to start my day when I feel the positive energy from this facility and the people inside.” Today, Frank is an unofficial ambassador for the CRC. He visits almost every day and tells everyone he meets about how the CRC and IEHP helped him change his life and live healthier. Even still, he’s not shy when it comes to sharing feedback with the staff if he thinks something can be done even better. “They listen to everything I say because they really want to help. IEHP is in touch with the needs of the community and for that I’m grateful,” he said.
Testimonials - Tiffany Thompson
a detective. Her investigations as a process improvement facilitator are meant to root out the cause behind a process that isn’t working. But her work doesn’t end there. She also teams up with various departments to solve their issues. “Quality is always in the forefront. It’s the key that drives our performance improvement initiatives,” she said. Take for example, the six months she spent working with Member Services to improve response rates, improve Members’ call experiences and enhance outcomes. Tiffani and the team wanted to know why Members were calling back regarding the same issue or why they were hanging up before speaking to a representative. It turned out, the answers weren’t the most obvious, requiring a more focused and strategic approach to the project that is still ongoing. Education and training are also important components when it comes to process improvement. “The best part is seeing a department have its ‘Ah-ha’ moment. That’s when everyone lands on the same page and when the road to get to the best outcome becomes clear,” Tiffani explained. She shared that she’s noticed a change in the culture when it comes to performance improvement initiatives. Front-line Team Members are feeling more and more empowered to bring issues to their leaders through daily huddles or rapid improvement events. Tiffani says that shows how committed her colleagues are to delivering great Member experiences across the organization. “They have first-hand knowledge of what’s working and what can be better. We’re becoming more proactive when it comes to performance improvement and that is only going to benefit our Members,” she said.
Testimonials - Scott Gary
ct training to work at IEHP? “It’s all about the mission,” said Scott Gary, a lead instructional designer in Learning & Development who served 10 years in the Army. “That’s what’s most important. That’s what motivates you.” A shared IEHP mission enables Team Members to focus on a common goal and work toward achieving it together. It also emphasizes collaboration rather than competition – unlike other corporate workplaces. Scott says that spirit of collaboration also fosters true employee engagement. It’s one of the main reasons why he enjoys works at IEHP. “The culture here is really unique,” Scott said. “The emphasis on a work-life balance shows that our leaders care about our well-being and that makes you feel good about what you do here. You feel valued.” High engagement is an important driver of quality as well, he added. If a quality issue or concern is raised, the immediate question that comes after that is, “How can we do better?” He credits that responsiveness and dedication to a supportive and engaged team culture. “In my work with other departments, I see firsthand how committed Team Members are to improving quality and to their best,” Gary said. “It’s because they care.”

Advisory Committees - IEDC Advisory Committee
ople with disabilities have extraordinary missions, dedicated staff, and valuable resources — but they can only provide some of the support an individual needs. For seniors and people with disabilities, navigating services and resources from different organizations across a widespread geographic area can be a challenge and often overwhelming. They often miss the opportunity to receive the full-scope of services from the resources available in their area. Creating the Inland Empire Disabilities Collaborative (IEDC) helped decrease the problem of fragmented resources. By joining forces, organizations who serve seniors and people with disabilities have developed a strong relationship with each other and the community they serve. IEDC Mission To promote equal opportunity, universal access, and full participation of people with disabilities in all aspects of life. About the IEDC Launched as a networking tool in February of 2006, the IEDC currently brings together over 540 members from regional organizations.
