Tribal Partnerships: A Health Foundation Balances Relationships And Results With Native American Communities
Empire Health Foundation’s (EHF’s) work with Native American partners in Eastern Washington is having a profound impact on the health of local tribes. Their collaborative goals are to make measurable improvements in the region’s health, given the profound disparities in health outcomes between Native Americans and the general population. EHF’s Health Coaching for Activation program has achieved a shared objective of a 20 percent improvement in patient activation while reducing hospital readmissions by 65 percent.
