Chapa-De Indian Health Receives $150,000 Kaiser Permanente Grant to Help Reduce Heart Attacks and Strokes for Patients
Chapa-De is excited to receive a $150,000 grant from Kaiser Permanente. This grant will help our team assist those most at risk of heart attacks and strokes. This new, long-term effort expands Kaiser Permanente’s successful Preventing Heart Attacks and Strokes Everyday (PHASE) program.
“PHASE is effective because it helps keep treatment simple and affordable — it makes a world of difference by giving patients a simple plan to help them stay healthy.”-Lisa Davies, CEO Chapa-De
Affordable Care Made Possible
Kaiser Permanente has reduced heart attacks and strokes among its members by more than 60% since 2002. PHASE combines medications and lifestyle changes to provide affordable treatment for people with existing heart disease. Additionally, PHASE can be helpful for those at risk for developing heart disease. Incorporating PHASE is a natural fit for Chapa-De and its patients.
“We provide care to over 20,000 patients in the region and many of them have multiple chronic conditions that can be complicated by socioeconomic factors,” said Lisa Davies, CEO of Chapa-De. “PHASE is effective because it helps keep treatment simple and affordable — it makes a world of difference by giving patients a simple plan to help them stay healthy.”
In 2006, Kaiser Permanente began sharing the program with community health centers, just like Chapa-De. This year, Kaiser Permanente’s Community Benefit department is awarding nearly $6 million in PHASE grants across Northern California. Grants will support the technology and work process changes that are necessary for implementing PHASE.
“By sharing PHASE with the broader health care system, we can save more lives. In the process, we’re giving community health providers access to an evidence-based model and population health management tools,” said Marc Jaffe, M.D., an endocrinologist and internist at Kaiser Permanente South San Francisco. “This is an important long-term investment, because it helps clinicians operate more efficiently in an environment that is becoming more focused on improving measurable patient outcomes.”
Strengthening Our Community Care
All organizations receiving PHASE grants become part of a learning community that engages in training, problem solving, and advancing best practices. For Chapa-De and our Auburn and Grass Valley communities, this means access to the most cutting edge research and practices available for heart attack and stroke prevention.
