Get Healthier Care Together, Inc., has kicked off two of its fiscal 2022 / 2023 Fundraising Campaigns.
The first is our Hall of Fame For Health Workers FREE Membership Drive. Our goal is to raise $25 million dollars to provide 100,000 Health Workers with FREE membership in the Health Workers Hall of Fame.
Get Healthier Care Together, Inc., is leading the nation in unfolding a bold new normal in the way Health Workers are recognized and honored in America.
Get Healthier Care Together Inc, a charity organization and an IRS approved 501 (C) (3), is advancing a monumental approach that pays tribute to Health Workers in a way that is healthifying, unifying, unprecedented, historic, transformational and memorable.
Get Healthier Care Together, Inc., has also kicked off our Fiscal 2022 and 2023 UNDESERVED OR UNDERSERVED FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN.
Our fundraising goal is to raise $500 million dollars in tax deductible donations to advance social determinants of health innovation, interventions and solutions, that lead outcome health in Black and Brown communities in a bold systemic shift in outcome health culture, direction, structure, learning, management, performance and results.
COVID19, further exposed the deadly impact of these injustices, inequalities and disparities for the whole world to see.
Yet to date, pre and post COVID19, not one single leader in all of America — from anywhere — business, government, health care, academia, civic, charities or otherwise, – has stepped forward to take ownership of and accountability for the plight of health disparities in Black and Brown communities.
If nothing else, this fact is clear evidence that centuries of injustices and systemic inequalities in racial, health and ethnic disparities in Black and Brown communities has not occurred by happenstance but by structural and intentional design.
No where is this reality more evident than in underserved and disadvantaged communities.
Despite billions of dollars spent, the quality of health care in these communities, are systematically riddled with the negative impact of social determinants of health, fragmented care delivery, disjointed care coordination, and disparity-plagued sick-care.
All of which contribute to higher rates of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, infant mortality, high school drop out, unemployment, incarceration, violence, alcohol and drug dependence, plus other unmet health needs.
How? We aim to lead health outcomes in a bold systemic shift in outcome health culture, direction, structure, learning, management, performance and results, through implementing sixteen (16 ) integrated social determinants of health projects — that are designed to healthify and upgrade the health, length and quality of life of children, youth, women and families. Post Stop-and-Frisk Trauma Relief™ is one them.
Where? In Black and Brown communities. Also referred to as underserved, disadvantaged and undervalued communities – (UDUC’s) throughout NYC and beyond. The U.S. Health Resources and Servcies Administration define communities as Medically Underserved Areas (MUAs) and Medically Underserved Populations (MUPs).
Due To These Disparities:
- Neglect in Underserved Communities Has Left: Poor health outcomes, in the hands of undesirable social determinants of health, disparity-plagued sick-care and a fee-for-service model of care that delivers volume-based treatment services instead of high quality outcome health results.
- Neglect in Underserved Communities Has Left: The thinking, behavior, attitudes, communication, knowledge and skills of community residents and health workers, entrenched in cultures and practices that are unresponsive to and unsupportive of the industry’s Triple Aim, Quadruple Aim and the journey from volume-based sick care to value-based well care.
- Neglect in Underserved Communities Has Left: Community health services in the hands of unhealthy one (1) star rated hospitals that underperform in a CMS 5 star rating System. One and two star rated hospitals and health systems are synonymous with low value and low quality services – and are in no position to transform themselves, let alone provide high quality community care.
- Neglect in Underserved Communities Has Left: Traditional education institutions and their training capabilities, lagging behind the changes in front line care delivery systems, without the linkages needed to maintain a closer connection between health care delivery and education systems, so that workers can flexibly gain new skills and competencies they need for a changing health care landscape. At a time when its needed most, traditional educational systems has left underserved communities without a premier Provider of value-based health science, education and training to accelerate value-based transformation.
- Neglect in Underserved Communities Has Left: Slow responding policy makers out of steps with a timely appropriate course of action in two main areas. One, in rewriting job descriptions and two, in redesigning workflows built around the needs of population health, not strategies detached from meeting the needs of the community. These changes are necessary to optimize enhanced care functions that focus on coordinating care within the health care system and “boundary spanning” roles, that coordinate patient care between our health care system and community‐based settings.
As a result of neglect, underserved communities are at an even greater risk of being left further behind, as the U.S. health care industry continues is historic and transformational jounrey from volume-based to value-based care.
