Maternal Needs Assessment Survey
The HRF Fund and MCH programming at the FHB is largely federally funded by Title V MCH Block Grant funding. Every 5 years we conduct a Needs Assessment to identify priorities in MCH direct and indirect services and programming across the state. We are in the midst of that process and are reaching out to provider groups that work in MCH populations to help us with the prioritization process by giving feedback via a brief survey. The information that the survey provides will not only be used to determine the state’s priorities over the next five years but will also let our federal partners know how well the ACA has been implemented in our state.
Please complete the survey by May 15th, 2015 - Click to take survey

What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?
A patient-centered medical home integrates patients as active participants in their own health and well-being. Patients are cared for by a personal physician who leads the medical team that coordinates all aspects of preventive, acute and chronic needs of patients using the best available evidence and appropriate technology. These relationships offer patients comfort, convenience and optimal health throughout their lifetimes.
