SAN FRANCISCO, June 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Shield of California Foundation announced today $11.2
"Our state's underserved, low-income patients and survivors of domestic violence face significant barriers to care that are magnified by a poorly integrated healthcare system," said Peter Long, PhD, president and CEO of Blue Shield of California Foundation. "We believe that strengthening the integration and coordination of services across the safety net will remain critical as California navigates the current healthcare environment."
Targeted at urban and rural safety net providers, these grants will continue to support health information exchanges and other technology inter-operability projects, as well as new models of care delivery addressing access to specialty care and behavioral health services. This funding aims to transform the ability of the safety net to offer seamless, well-coordinated care and bring California safety net providers closer to a "no wrong door" model in which patients with complex problems can always be redirected to the best available services.
Grant recipients who will receive support include:
These grants bring the Foundation's total philanthropic giving to nearly $396 million since 2002.
