Member Testimonials - Our Members
group of students from the Inland Empire. More than 30 recipient students grew up in the Inland Empire and more than 50% are first generation medical students and grew up in low-income households. Through the scholarship fund, aspiring healthcare professionals will be guided through the system and connected to the health plan’s provider network. This allows students to pursue successful careers in healthcare immediately after graduation to help support the region’s growing population. Loma Linda University School of Medicine Inland Empire Medical Community Service Awardees Class of 2022 Ye Jin Jeon Ye Jin's Why: “I applied for the Inland Empire Medical Community Service Award because the goal and priority to expand access to care and healthcare provider options for the Southern California region aligns with my calling. As a child growing up in the San Bernardino County, I saw the economic disproportion within my own neighborhood, and this compelled me…God has led me pursue my medical career” Class of 2024 Edwin Choque Edwin's Why: “Simply put, my heart lies in the Inland Empire. This community of individuals have fostered me and loved me since I was a child and all I can hope is to pay that love and care forward. . . . My dream is to be on the front lines as a representative for these individuals who frequently become marginalized…” University of California, Riverside Dean's Mission Recipients Four Year Award Elizabeth Celaya-Ojeda Elizabeth's Why: “I want to work particularly with the underserved in this area because I truly believe that being a physician is a privilege and with that there is a responsibility to be an advocate for those who are facing health disparities. I am particularly interested in providing care to underserved Native American and Hispanic communities. Not many healthcare providers are aware of the disparities these two communities face and I want to be an advocate for them, especially in the Inland Empire.” Alfonso Parocua Alfonso's Why: “Growing up, my family lacked meaningful access to healthcare and relied on a local free clinic as our only means of interacting with a physician. Through my personal experience with the free clinic, I developed a passion for service to the underserved communities who lack meaningful access to basic healthcare amenities due to low socioeconomic status. I sought opportunities that would allow me to pay my gratitude forward by becoming part of the solution to healthcare disparities in Inland Southern California. Through my volunteer efforts in free clinics and other community involvement programs, I witnessed the passion and dedication that health care providers and volunteers in the area have towards the underserved community. This realization deepened my connection to Inland Southern California because I was reminded so much of the health care professionals that helped my family when they couldn't help themselves.” Two Year Award Cesar Fortuna Cesar's Why: “A San Bernardino native, I have had the opportunity to volunteer in my community as a Spanish language translator for free clinics. Most patients I have spoken with fell into the category of uninsured, underinsured, or undocumented. It became clear the extent of need in this region when I would translate to the providers that this was the first-time dozens of our patients had ever seen a medical professional; however, this wasn’t uncommon. To these patients and their stories, I thank them because they inspire me to pursue Emergency Medicine where I can become a valuable player in providing care, providing resources, or providing comfort.” Lavinia Mitroi Lavinia's Why: “My goal of pursuing a career at the intersection of medicine and public health is driven by a desire to put patients and communities at the center of our health care system in the U.S. This desire was sparked most poignantly by my own experiences as an IEHP patient growing up in the Inland Empire. As I prepare for a future career as a pediatrician in this region, I hope to serve as an advocate for children and families, providing direct health services but also creating systems change.” Armando Navarro Armando's Why: “The earliest memory of my grandfather is him telling me, “Mijo, tienes que aprender Español para ayudar tu comunidad, you have to learn how to speak Spanish to help your community”. These words were often repeated to me by my grandfather who lamented the fact that he only spoke Spanish. I witnessed the health disparities affecting my community; doctors who did not speak Spanish, parents who could not afford a trip to the doctors’ office, and a healthcare system that was not inclusive of my community’s culture. I have a duty to give back to a school, a community, that has given me so much.” Christ Ordookhanian Christ's Why: “I see the medical profession through the lens of an individual who had lived through challenging times and witnessed how one individual provider can make such and impact when their heart is in the right place. My dedication to our underserved community stems from that of a lifelong mission I have set for myself which is to ensure I give back to a community that I am deeply associated with, they are my founding roots in the United States, and I vow to be at the forefront of the next generation of physicians that care and give the underserved hope.” University of California, Riverside Dean's Mission Recipients Daphne Du Daphne's Why: “I spent most of my life in underprivileged areas and saw firsthand how difficult healthcare access could be through inadequate financial resources, transportation, or translation services. Thanks to this investment in my studies, there is less stress in my life. I can focus on my studies and eventually give back to the community by becoming a physician who will advocate for patients without meaningful access to health care.” Judith Gonzales Judith's Why: “As a first-generation college student, there have always been many barriers in my path to higher education. I am the eldest daughter of an immigrant family, and it is truly an honor to be able to reach this point in my education and in my career, and to give back to my parents who have sacrificed so much for me and my sisters. Growing up in an underserved community showed me the long-lasting impacts of health inequities and strengthened my resolve to pursue a career in medicine. Working in the Inland Empire, I hope to not only address, but actively work towards combating the health inequity present in our communities.” Jordan Hough Jordan's Why: “Despite disadvantages encountered when living in a low-income community, I am grateful for the privilege I had in meeting physicians dedicated to their practice and willing to share that love through mentorship. These individuals have served as exemplary medical professionals and have encouraged me to follow in their footsteps. As a future physician, I aspire to empathetically care for patients by allowing my past experiences to enhance my understanding of their needs. I also plan to incorporate teaching into patient care by presenting opportunities for students to shadow and be mentored for a career in medicine.” Diana Martinez Diana's Why: “I am the daughter of Mexican Immigrants and grew up in Compton, California where I unfortunately was quickly desensitized to violence and was able to tell the difference between a firework and a gun shot. My mother had to travel a significant distance to ensure we had adequate healthcare. Despite these conditions, my parents always stressed education and did their best to give me what I needed. These life circumstances ignited my passion to serve those in disadvantaged communities, which I interacted with throughout my educational career. The Inland Empire Health Program Scholarship means I can achieve my dream –by practicing medicine in a community that deserves adequate, equitable, and accessible healthcare. I will serve as a bilingual physician in the Inland Empire that can serve families like my own and many more.”
Plan Updates - Vaccine Resources
2-2023 influenza season continues to coincide with circulation of COVID-19 virus (SARS-CoV-2). As of August 2022, approximately 94.2 million cases of COVID-19 had been reported in the United States. Influenza vaccination remains an important tool for the prevention of potentially severe respiratory illness, which helps decrease the stress on the U.S. health care system. IEHP DualChoice members who are 18 years of age or older may obtain flu vaccines through the IEHP Pharmacy Vaccine Network. Vaccine Notice: Access to Pharmacy Vaccine Network (PDF) Frequently Asked Influenza (Flu) Questions: 2022-2023 Season (CDC Recommendations) What’s New for 2022-2023 By clicking on these links, you will be leaving the IEHP website. The composition of flu vaccines has been updated. For the 2022-2023 flu season, there are three flu vaccines that are preferentially recommended for people 65 years and older. These are Fluzone High-Dose Quadrivalent vaccine, Flublok Quadrivalent recombinant flu vaccine and Fluad Quadrivalent adjuvanted flu vaccine. The recommended timing of vaccination is similar to last season. For most people who need only one dose for the season, September and October are generally good times to get vaccinated. Vaccination in July and August is not recommended for most adults but can be considered for some groups. While ideally it’s recommended to get vaccinated by the end of October, it’s important to know that vaccination after October can still provide protection during the peak of flu season. The age indication for the cell culture-based inactivated flu vaccine, Flucelvax Quadrivalent (ccIIV4), changed from 2 years and older to 6 months and older. Pre-filled Afluria Quadrivalent flu shots for children are not expected to be available this season. However, children can receive this vaccine from a multidose vial at the recommended dose. Mpox Information Mpox Vaccination Locations San Bernardino County: Monkeypox (mpox) – Department of Public Health Riverside County: Mpox Vaccine Locations – Riverside University Health System Please advise members to call before going in for a vaccination as some locations are only available with appointments. Members may make appointments for the JYNNEOS vaccine at https://myturn.ca.gov/. Mpox Testing As of December 8, 2022, no commercial testing is available for the diagnosis of Mpox. Providers may contact CDC in the diagnosis, management of patients with suspected Mpox, and for any additional information regarding Mpox connect with the CDC Emergency Operations Center. Phone: 1-770-488-7100, Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM EST After Hours Phone: 1-404-639-2888 Treatment Mpox patients usually recover fully within 2-4 weeks without the need for medical treatment. While there are no treatments specifically for Mpox, the virus that causes Mpox is similar to the smallpox virus and therefore antiviral drugs developed to protect against smallpox may be used. The antiviral drug, tecovirimat (TPOXX), has been approved by the FDA to treat smallpox in adults and children. If you prescribe tecovirimat to treat members with Mpox the member must sign a consent form stating tecovirimat is an investigational drug that has not yet been approved by the FDA for treatment of Mpox. More information about tecovirimat visit https://www.cdc.gov/poxvirus/monkeypox/if-sick/treatment.html.

Fraud Prevention Fraud Prevention, it’s a Team Effort In an effort to prevent fraud and abuse, IEHP encourages Providers and their staff to report any suspicious circumstances when they arise. You may want to ask for another form of identification in addition to the IEHP Member identification card. Identification with both a picture and a signature, such as a valid driver’s license or State identification card, are suggested. We are informing Members of this concern and are requesting that they have additional identification available when they come to you. To obtain more compliance guidelines, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) offers assistance (by clicking on this link you will be leaving the IEHP website). Fraud is knowingly and willfully executing, or attempting to execute, a scheme or artifice to defraud any health care benefit program, or to obtain, by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises, any of the money or property owned by, or under the custody or control of, any health care benefit program. Examples include: Knowingly billing for services or prescriptions not furnished or supplies not provided Knowingly altering claim forms for a higher payment Selling medicine, medical equipment, or other things received through IEHP Waste includes overuse of services, or other practices that, directly or indirectly, result in unnecessary costs. Waste is generally not considered to be caused by criminally negligent actions but rather by the misuse of resources. Examples include: Conducting excessive office visits Writing excessive prescriptions or ordering excessive tests Prescribing more medications than necessary for the treatment of a specific condition Abuse includes actions that may, directly or indirectly, result in unnecessary costs and improper payment or services. Abuse involves payment for items or services when there is no legal entitlement to that payment and the provider has not knowingly and/or intentionally misrepresented facts to obtain payment. Examples include: Billing for unnecessary medical services or medical equipment Billing for brand name drugs when generics are dispensed Misusing codes on a claim, such as upcoding and unbundling codes. Report potential FWA Click Here (By clicking on this link, you will be leaving the IEHP website). Privacy Incident/Breach IEHP has established a HIPAA Privacy Program to ensure that Member’s health information is properly protected while allowing the flow of health information needed to provide and promote high-quality health care. A privacy breach is defined as unauthorized acquisition, access, use, or disclosure of protected health information (PHI) which compromises the security or privacy of such information. PHI is health information that relates to a Member’s past, present or future physical or mental health or condition, including the provision of his/her health care, or payment for that care and contains personally identifiable information (PII) such as name, SSN, DOB, Member ID, address, or any other unique identifier related to the Member. This generally means that a breach occurs when PHI is accessed, used, or disclosed to an individual or entity that does not have a business reason to know that information. The law does allow information to be accessed, used, or disclosed when it is related to treatment, payment, or healthcare operations directly associated with the work that we do at IEHP on behalf of our Members.

MTM services include: Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR) An IEHP Clinical Pharmacist will provide an annual comprehensive review of the IEHP DualChoice Member’s medications over the phone. The Pharmacist will review IEHP DualChoice Member’s medications and make clinical recommendations to IEHP DualChoice Members and Providers. Targeted Medication Review (TMR) The IEHP Clinical Pharmacy Team will also offer TMRs through the year by reviewing issues with the participating IEHP DualChoice Member’s medicines. The team will perform TMRs for all enrolled beneficiaries every three months.

atives that MCPs may offer in place of services or settings covered under the California Medicaid State Plan. Beginning January 1, 2022, IEHP began offering 11 DHCS Preapproved Community Supports services. Effective July 1, 2023, 3 additional services were added. Please click on the service for additional details. Asthma Remediation Environmental Asthma Trigger Remediations are physical modifications to a home environment that are necessary to ensure the health, welfare, and safety of the individual, or enable the individual to function in the home and without which acute asthma episodes could result in the need for emergency services and hospitalization. Community Transition Services/Nursing Facility Transition to a Home Assist members to live in the community and avoid further institutionalization. These services are non-recurring set-up expenses for individuals who are transitioning from a licensed facility to a living arrangement in a private residence where the person is directly responsible for his or her own living expenses. Environmental Accessibility Adaptations (Home Modifications) Environmental Accessibility Adaptations (EAAs also known as Home Modifications) are physical adaptations to a home that are necessary to ensure the health, welfare, and safety of the individual, or enable the individual to function with greater independence in the home: without which the Member would require institutionalization. Housing Deposits Housing Deposits assist with identifying, coordinating, securing, or funding one-time services and modifications necessary to enable a person to establish a basic household that do not constitute room and board. Housing Tenancy & Sustaining Services This service provides tenancy and sustaining services, with a goal of maintaining safe and stable tenancy once housing is secured. Housing Transition Navigation Services Housing transition services assist Members with obtaining housing. Medically Supportive Food/Meals/Medically Tailored Meals Malnutrition and poor nutrition can lead to devastating health outcomes, higher utilization, and increased costs, particularly among Members with chronic conditions. Meals help individuals achieve their nutrition goals at critical times to help them regain and maintain their health. Results include improved Member health outcomes, lower hospital readmission rates, a well-maintained nutritional health status, and increased Member satisfaction. Nursing Facility Transition/Diversion to Assisted Living Facilities Nursing Facility Transition/Diversion services assist individuals to live in the community and/or avoid institutionalization when possible. The goal is to both facilitate nursing facility transition back into a home-like, community setting and/or prevent skilled nursing admissions for Members with an imminent need for nursing facility level of care (LOC). Individuals have a choice of residing in an assisted living setting as an alternative to long-term placement in a nursing facility when they meet eligibility requirements. Recuperative Care (Medical Respite) Recuperative care, also referred to as medical respite care, is short-term residential care for individuals who no longer require hospitalization, but still need to heal from an injury or illness (including behavioral health conditions) and whose condition would be exacerbated by an unstable living environment. An extended stay in a recovery care setting allows individuals to continue their recovery and receive post-discharge treatment while obtaining access to primary care, behavioral health services, case management and other supportive social services, such as transportation, food, and housing. Short-Term Post-Hospitalization Housing Short-Term Post-Hospitalization housing provides Members who do not have a residence and who have high medical or behavioral health needs with the opportunity to continue their medical/psychiatric/substance use disorder recovery immediately after exiting an inpatient hospital (either acute or psychiatric or Chemical Dependency and Recovery hospital), residential substance use disorder treatment or recovery facility, residential mental health treatment facility, correctional facility, nursing facility, or recuperative care and avoid further utilization of State plan services. Sobering Centers (Riverside County) Sobering centers are alternative destinations for individuals who are found to be publicly intoxicated (due to alcohol and/or other drugs) and would otherwise be transported to the emergency department or jail. Sobering centers provide these individuals, primarily those who are homeless or those with unstable living situations, with a safe, supportive environment to become sober. Day Habilitation Programs Effective July 1st - Day Habilitation Programs are provided in a participant’s home or an out-of-home, non-facility setting. The programs are designed to assist the participant in acquiring, retaining, and improving self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills necessary to reside successfully in the person’s natural environment. Respite Services Effective July 1st - These are provided to caregivers of participants who require intermittent temporary supervision. The services are provided on a short-term basis because of the absence or need for relief of those persons who normally care for and/or supervise them and are non-medical in nature. Personal Care and Homemaker Services Effective July 1st - This service is provided for individuals who need assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL), such as bathing, dressing, toileting, ambulation, or feeding. Personal Care Services can also include assistance with Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL), such as meal preparation, grocery shopping, and money management. IEHP Direct and Delegated Providers can submit referrals for Community Supports via the Provider Portal. For questions on how to submit a referral or more information relating to the above services, Providers can call the Provider Call Center at (909) 890-2054 or (866) 223-4347.

Tin Tức Mới Nhất - IEHP Công bố Angelica Baltazar được Bổ nhiệm làm Chủ tịch Tổ chức Mới
chương trình Medicare-Medicaid phi lợi nhuận lớn nhất cả nước, hôm nay đã công bố rằng Angelica Baltazar, MSW đã được bổ nhiệm làm chủ tịch của tổ chức IEHP Foundation mới được thành lập. Tổ chức này là bộ phận từ thiện của IEHP và có vị trí đặc biệt để giúp tăng tinh thần từ thiện và sự hào phóng trong vùng, giúp đỡ những người dễ bị tổn thương nhất và giữ nguồn tiền ở lại với cộng đồng. Công việc của tổ chức tập trung vào việc đạt được điều mà IEHP gọi là Sức khỏe Dồi dào cho Inland Empire. Sức khỏe Dồi dào có nghĩa là các Thành viên của IEHP và các cư dân của Inland Empire sẽ được tiếp cận với một cuộc sống tốt hơn, vui vẻ hơn thông qua các chương trình giải quyết nguyên nhân gốc rễ của bệnh tật, sự bình đẳng về sức khỏe và nhu cầu cốt lõi của cộng đồng. Baltazar có hơn 20 năm kinh nghiệm về sức khỏe cộng đồng và dịch vụ nhân sinh. Bà đã tham gia IEHP từ San Antonio Regional Hospital nơi bà đã phục vụ với vai trò gần đây nhất là Trưởng phòng Điều hành về Bình đẳng Sức khỏe và Giám đốc Điều hành của Lewis-San Antonio Healthy Communities Institute. Baltazar có bằng cử nhân về công tác xã hội của Cal Poly Pomona và bằng thạc sĩ về lập kế hoạch và quản trị chính sách của Loma Linda University. Bà là thành viên cố vấn cộng đồng cho Inland SoCal United Way, và là ủy viên hội đồng của Partners for Better Health và Promise Scholars. “Tìm được đúng người để dẫn dắt IEHP Foundation là bước đầu quan trọng cho sự phát triển của tổ chức,” Giám đốc Điều hành của IEHP Jarrod McNaughton nói. “Kinh nghiệm của Angelica trong lĩnh vực này sẽ hỗ trợ các nỗ lực của chúng tôi trong việc cải thiện sức khỏe cho IE trong nhiều thập kỷ tới.”
Tin Tức Mới Nhất - IEHP Ra Mắt Chiến Dịch Nhằm Tăng Tỷ Lệ Tiêm Vắc-xin tại Inland Empire
re Health Plan (IEHP) đã tổ chức một loạt các chiến dịch giáo dục, quan hệ đối tác cộng đồng và sự cộng tác của bên liên quan nhằm hỗ trợ giáo dục cũng như cung cấp quyền tiếp cận cho những cư dân chưa được tiêm vắc-xin. Theo dữ liệu của tiểu bang, cộng đồng Người Da Đen, cộng đồng Người Tây Ban Nha và Bồ Đào Nha cùng Hội Viên Medi-Cal thuộc mức xếp loại có tỷ lệ tiêm vắc-xin thấp nhất tại các quận Riverside và San Bernardino. Ngoài ra, tỷ lệ bệnh nhân dương tính với COVID-19 trong khu vực tiếp tục dao động đáng kể, dẫn đến sự bất ổn và nguy cơ luôn trường trực. Tiến sĩ Takashi Wada, Giám Đốc Y Tế tại IEHP cho biết: “Vắc-xin COVID-19 là phương pháp “chắc chắn” nhất mà chúng ta có để chống lại vi-rút này”. “Mặc dù có thể có trường hợp đã được tiêm vắc-xin nhưng vẫn nhiễm vi-rút, dữ liệu cho thấy vắc-xin có hiệu quả tuyệt vời trong việc làm giảm tác động của vi-rút, nhờ vậy giảm số ca nhập viện và tử vong. Đó là lý do khiến việc được tiêm vắc-xin lại quan trọng đến vậy.” Kể từ khi vắc-xin được tung ra thị trường, IEHP đã tham gia một số sự kiện tiêm vắc-xin tạm thời, trong đó có việc hợp tác với Loma Linda University Health (LLUH) và SAC Health System (SACHS), để tổ chức một phòng tiêm vắc-xin COVID-19 tại Nhà Thờ Giám Mục Hội Giám Lý Châu Phi (St. Paul AME) ở San Bernardino (nơi thờ cúng nổi tiếng của Cộng Đồng Người Da Đen tại quận này). Với việc có thêm quỹ từ Chương Trình Khuyến Khích Tiêm Vắc-xin COVID-19 Medi-Cal của tiểu bang, IEHP sẽ tiếp tục phát triển quan hệ đối tác với các quận, tổ chức cộng đồng, trường học và nhà thờ để cải tiến cũng như xây dựng các hành động khác nhằm tăng tỷ lệ tiêm vắc-xin. IEHP cũng sẽ phát triển một chương trình khuyến khích để khích lệ các nhà cung cấp trong mạng lưới của IEHP tăng tỷ lệ tiêm vắc-xin COVID. Ông Wada bổ sung: “Chúng tôi thấu hiểu nỗi sợ của những người chọn không tiêm vắc-xin. Vì vậy, chúng tôi muốn hỗ trợ những người này bằng cách gặp gỡ họ ở các địa điểm quen thuộc, trang bị cho họ dữ kiện, thông tin và cơ hội được tiêm vắc-xin”. “Sự quen thuộc và niềm tin là một phần lớn trong việc đưa ra quyết định đó. Chúng tôi rất vui mừng khi hợp tác với các nhà lãnh đạo và tổ chức cộng đồng để tiếp tục tạo dựng niềm tin đó.” Vào tháng trước, IEHP cũng hợp tác với chương trình chăm sóc sức khỏe chị em là L.A. Care để ra mắt một chiến dịch giáo dục với sự trợ giúp của diễn viên Jaime Camil từng đoạt giải thưởng, nổi tiếng với vai diễn trong bộ phim Jane the Virgin của CW và bộ phim Coco của Disney. Ngoài ra, IEHP còn tham gia các sự kiện Instagram Live, các PSA và biển quảng cáo sẽ chạy vào những tuần sắp tới. Ông Jarrod McNaughton, Giám Đốc Điều Hành IEHP cho biết: “Ngoài việc chiến đấu với đại dịch COVID, chúng tôi còn góp một chút sức lực vào việc chống đại dịch tin giả”. “Việc cung cấp cho cộng đồng thông tin xác thực, thành thật về vắc-xin theo cách liên quan đến bản thân họ có thể tạo nên sự khác biệt. Dịch vụ chăm sóc sức khỏe chủ yếu mang tính cá nhân. Vì vậy, chúng tôi rất vui mừng khi hợp tác với một nhóm đối tác đáng kính nhằm đảm bảo rằng những cư dân yếu thế nhất được trang bị tất cả những thứ họ cần để được hưởng dịch vụ chăm sóc tối ưu và sức khỏe dồi dào.” Chương trình chăm sóc sức khỏe này sẽ tiếp tục phục vụ Quận San Bernardino, đóng vai trò là địa điểm tiêm vắc-xin vô cùng hiệu quả, tổ chức phòng khám tại trụ sở ở Rancho Cucamonga, với các chương trình nhằm mở rộng hoạt động thông qua các đối tác chăm sóc sức khỏe cộng đồng khác trong tương lai gần.

Tin Tức Mới Nhất - IEHP Triển khai Chương trình Sức khỏe Mầm non
Linda University Health (LLUH), và Help Me Grow Inland Empire (HMGIE) đã cùng hợp tác để lập nên Chương trình Sức khỏe Mầm non IEHP (IEHP Early Childhood Wellness Program). Chương trình này khuyến khích sự hiểu biết của cha mẹ về các cột mốc phát triển của trẻ em (0-5 tuổi) thông qua các phép sàng lọc phòng ngừa, các lớp học tương tác, nguồn trợ giúp hữu ích và nhiều hơn nữa. Các cột mốc phát triển rất hữu ích trong việc đo lường sự phát triển của trẻ em và có thể cung cấp các dấu hiệu cảnh báo sớm về chứng chậm phát triển. “Sự phát triển của một đứa trẻ không chỉ là về thể chất, và có thể được quan sát từ cách đứa trẻ chơi, học tập, nói và ứng xử,” Jane Wang, Giám đốc Giáo dục Sức khỏe của IEHP nói. “Phụ huynh và người giám hộ biết rõ về đứa trẻ nhất có thể là người đầu tiên xác định bất kỳ cột mốc nào không đạt được và họ là một phần quan trọng của giải pháp,” Wang cho biết thêm. “Việc giúp mọi người nhận thức được các cột mốc phát triển thông qua các hoạt động và nguồn trợ giúp cho các phụ huynh cơ hội tìm hiểu thêm về con mình và cách mà họ có thể tác động đến sự phát triển của con.” Hồi tưởng lại thời gian tham gia chương trình, Jessica Cortez, mẹ của Jayla (8 tháng) nói, “Bằng việc thực hiện các hoạt động trong chương trình, tôi đã học hỏi được nhiều cách khác nhau có thể giúp tôi dạy và cải thiện việc học tập của cháu. Nếu tôi không tham gia lớp học, tôi đã không thể nghĩ ra các hoạt động mà chúng tôi đang làm. Bảng câu hỏi cho tôi ý tưởng về điều gì cần để ý và những lĩnh vực nào cần cải thiện.” Chương trình sử dụng Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3, Bảng Câu hỏi về Tuổi và Giai đoạn) phối hợp với HMGIE. Kết quả trả lời bảng câu hỏi cho phụ huynh thông tin về hiện trạng phát triển của trẻ trên cả năm lĩnh vực cốt yếu mà có thể mang ra thảo luận với bác sĩ nhi khoa của trẻ. Năm lĩnh vực cốt yếu bao gồm: giao tiếp, vận động thô, vận động tinh, giải quyết vấn đề, và kỹ năng cá nhân-xã hội. Ngoài ra, phụ huynh còn được tiếp cận các phép sàng lọc phát triển, các tài liệu giáo dục và học tập mầm non khuyến khích sự tăng trưởng và phát triển lành mạnh ở nhà. Chương trình này cũng bao gồm lớp học tương tác trực tuyến Circle Time cho phụ huynh và con họ và giới thiệu phụ huynh đến các nguồn trợ giúp khi quan sát thấy bất kỳ quan ngại nào về phát triển. “Help Me Grow Inland Empire tự hào phục vụ với vai trò đối tác sàng lọc phát triển cho các Chuyên gia Giáo dục Sức khỏe của IEHP,” Bác sĩ Marti Baum, Bác sĩ Nhi Khoa và Bác sĩ Liên lạc của HMGIE nói. “HMGIE hỗ trợ các phụ huynh và người chăm sóc được giới thiệu của IEHP trong việc đánh giá sự phát triển của con họ so với các cột mốc đã được thiết lập. Khi xác định được các quan ngại, các Chuyên gia Giáo dục Sức khỏe của IEHP ngay lập tức bắt đầu làm việc với gia đình để cung cấp cho đứa trẻ sự chăm sóc y tế và dịch vụ xã hội cần thiết. Cùng nhau, IEHP và HMGIE đang làm nên sự khác biệt trong cuộc sống của những đứa trẻ — một mối quan hệ hợp tác thành công giúp đỡ trẻ em sẵn sàng học tập khi các em bắt đầu đến trường.” Chương trình này được cung cấp trực tuyến hàng tuần và sẽ mở lại các lớp học tương tác trực tiếp trong tháng này tại Victorville Community Resource Center của IEHP. “Dịch vụ chăm sóc phòng ngừa và khuyến khích sức khỏe phản ánh chính xác sứ mệnh của chúng tôi trong Giáo dục Sức khỏe tại IEHP,” Wang nói. “Tuy nhiên, để thực sự cung cấp dịch vụ chăm sóc toàn diện, chúng tôi tin rằng chúng tôi cũng phải tiếp tục củng cố mối quan hệ hợp tác với các nhà cung cấp của IEHP – chẳng hạn như tận dụng các giải pháp công nghệ để giúp tiếp cận các công cụ sàng lọc và kết quả dễ dàng hơn. Trong các năm tới, chúng tôi hy vọng sẽ góp phần hỗ trợ các nỗ lực này để các trẻ em từ 0-5 tuổi có được dịch vụ chăm sóc phù hợp đúng lúc, và có thể đạt đến tiềm năng của các em.” Các phụ huynh của IEHP có thể tham gia chương trình bằng cách nộp yêu cầu qua email tới email@example.com hoặc bằng cách tham gia một lớp học Circle Time với con mình.

Những đóng góp và sự tham gia tích cực từ các thành viên nhóm như Thomas và Amrita đã giúp cho cam kết của IEHP trong việc hàn gắn và tạo cảm hứng cho tinh thần của con người trở thành hiện thực, và chúng tôi rất biết ơn cống hiến của họ,” Jarrod McNaughton, Giám đốc Điều hành của IEHP nói.
Tin Tức Mới Nhất - Video Hợp tác Cộng đồng PSA ‘Hope is Alive’ nhận được 22 Giải Thưởng Quảng cáo Dịch vụ Chăm Sóc Sức Khỏe.
pire Health Plan (IEHP), SAC Health (SACHS), Loma Linda University Health (LLUH), Ezra Production và St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church (St. Paul AME) tại San Bernardino đã nhận được tổng cộng 22 giải thưởng quảng cáo dịch vụ chăm sóc sức khỏe. Các giải thưởng dao động từ giải Khuyến khích, Đồng, Bạc, Vàng và Chương trình Xuất sắc nhất trong các tổ chức bao gồm Giải thưởng Healthcare Ad, Giải thưởng Aster, Giải thưởng của Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (Giải thưởng Viddy), Giải thưởng của American Advertising Federation’s Inland Empire Chapter và Giải thưởng Telly. Hướng tới việc cung cấp kiến thức và nguồn thông tin tới nhóm dân số Người Da Đen và Gốc Văn hóa Tây Ban Nha trong khu vực – là những người có tỉ lệ tiêm vắc-xin COVID-19 thấp nhất, tỉ lệ nhiễm virus và nhập viện cao nhất – quan hệ hợp tác này bắt đầu vào 2021 như là một cách thức để IEHP tiếp cận và cung cấp thông tin cho những thành viên cộng đồng này. “COVID tác động mạnh nhất tới các cộng đồng Người Da Đen và Người Da Nâu như của chúng tôi,” Mục sư Steven D. Shepard Sr của St. Paul African American Methodist Episcopal Church (St. Paul AME) phát biểu. “Chúng tôi thường bị bỏ qua bởi vì chúng tôi không có tài sản hoặc nguồn tài chính mà những người khác có trong cộng đồng của họ.” Với khả năng tiếp cận dịch vụ chăm sóc sức khỏe bị hạn chế và nỗi sợ lịch sử đối với y học hiện đại, các tổ chức cộng đồng biết rằng để cứu người, họ cần phải gặp các cư dân của mình nơi mà họ sinh sống và cung cấp cho họ thông tin, sự trợ giúp và sự khích lệ đáng tin cậy để tiêm vắc xin COVID-19. Đoàn kết Vì Mục Đích Chung Sự hợp tác này bao gồm thu thập các nguồn lực của IEHP, LLUH và SACH để tổ chức các phòng khám tiêm vắc-xin COVID-19, các sự kiện phân phát hàng tạp hóa và tiếp cận cộng đồng tại một địa điểm quen thuộc: St. Paul AME Church. Công việc này đại điện cho mục tiêu chung đối với sự hợp tác cộng đồng của IEHP cùng với đội ngũ tiếp cận và dịch vụ y tế – tất cả đều nhằm hỗ trợ nhiệm vụ của tổ chức: “Chúng tôi hàn gắn và tạo cảm hứng cho tinh thần của con người." Ezra Productions – thông qua sự phối hợp chặt chẽ với đội ngũ tiếp thị-truyền thông của IEHP cho câu chuyện đầy cảm hứng này – đã ghi lại những nỗ lực chung, tạo nên “Hope is Alive.” Video công bố dịch vụ công cộng này có vai trò như là một nền tảng dành cho cộng đồng và các thành viên của St. Paul AME Church chia sẻ trải nghiệm của họ về COVID-19, bao gồm cả việc ghi nhận những nỗi sợ đi kèm với vắc-xin và nhu cầu tiếp tục sự phối hợp cộng đồng. “Chúng tôi lớn lên mà không tin tưởng vào bất kỳ thứ gì chính phủ muốn cung cấp cho chúng tôi,” một thành viên của St. Paul AME Church, ngồi bên cạnh con gái của cô trong cuộc phỏng vấn, nói. “Tôi bị mù bẩm sinh; tôi là sản phẩm của Thí nghiệm Tuskegee.” “Tôi quay sang cô bé và nói, ‘Con có biết rằng đó là [y viện chích vắc-xin] ở nhà thờ và hợp tác với IEHP không?” và đó là khi con bé nói, ‘Cho con đăng ký với,’” con gái của thành viên nói. “Để thúc đẩy thay đổi, mọi người cần phải được gặp tại nơi họ đang sống,” Bác sĩ Takashi Wada, Giám Đốc Y Khoa của IEHP nói. “Sự tiếp cận, lắng nghe và hợp tác sâu sắc cùng với các tổ chức đáng tin cậy trong cộng đồng của chúng tôi là chìa khóa để khiến điều đó diễn ra. Chúng tôi rất cảm kích khi được tiếp tục phát triển và cống hiến vào sự phối hợp đoạt giải thưởng cho phép chúng tôi quan tâm và hỗ trợ các Hội viên của mình theo cách hợp lý với mỗi cá nhân.” Ghi lại sức mạnh của sự đồng cảm, tiếp cận và hỗ trợ cộng đồng, “Hope is Alive” đã được đánh giá bởi các hội đồng quốc gia, là những người đã chấm điểm hàng ngàn bài dự thi dựa trên sự sáng tạo, chất lượng, hiệu quả của thông điệp, khả năng thu hút khách hàng, thiết kề đồ họa và tác động.
