Our 2020 Goal
Broward County, Florida is ready to become one of the healthiest cities in America. By 2020, we plan to move from a baseline of 12.4 Unhealthy Days to 9.9, by improving mental and physical health by 20 percent. We know that health happens locally, which is why we are working with community and physician partners to help solve some of Broward’s toughest barriers to health – like awareness of resources, health & financial literacy, provider/patient cultural competency and food insecurity. Let’s make health easier in Broward, together.

PILOTS AND INITIATIVES:
Telepsychiatry helps with access to behavioral health services in Broward County. Embedded telepsychiatry units within Humana-owned clinics facilitate quicker member access to psychiatrists. Members are evaluated and referred by their primary care physician (PCP), who oversees telepsychiatry visits and corresponding treatment.
The Broward County Food Insecurity and Referral pilot addresses the detrimental impact a lack of access to healthy food has on population health. In partnership with Feeding America, Feeding South Florida (a food bank), and Continucare Medical Centers, patients are screened for food insecurity during a Continucare physician office visit and those who screen positive meet with a Feeding South Florida representative in the office and receive an emergency food box. The patient also receives information on federal, state, and local programs to assist with food insecurity. This pilot helps measure the correlation between Healthy Days and food insecurity, health differences between food insecure and food secure patients, as well as the receptivity of patients to clinician food insecurity screenings.
The Third Party Influencer tracks medication adherence and disease management for chronic conditions like Congestive Heart Failure (CHF). In partnership with Humana Pharmacy, we test whether patients who receive reminders from a trusted third party or a combination of third parties are more adherent than patients who do not receive reminders. The third party in this pilot is a RightSource Pharmacist using a combination of voice activation technology and written message reminders.
