Supporting Initiatives

Network Infrastructure & Sustainability

Mendonoma Health Alliance has built a strong organizational infrastructure by obtaining grant funding, creating a governing body, establishing partnerships with other entities, hiring staff and consultants, and developing programs. We are in the process of obtaining our own IRS tax-exempt non-profit status, which will allow us to seek additional funding and ensure future sustainability.

Telehealth Solutions

With transportation challenges in our region, telehealth can be a solution to improving access to care. Telehealth, aka telemedicine, includes the use of communication technology (such as high-speed internet) to provide long-distance health care. It can be used for everything from monitoring people at home after they have been discharged from the hospital, to video conferencing with medical professionals who are not available locally.  We are now able to offer access to telehealth resources to the Mendonoma region.

Health Information Exchange

Health Information Exchanges (HIE) enables healthcare providers to move and access information electronically across organizations and regions. This can result in better access to information to improve timely, efficient, and effective care. Mendonoma Health seeks to expand local HIE capacity among our collaborating partners.

Outreach & Needs Assessment

All of the tools and resources Mendonoma Health is facilitating can only be effective if our community is aware of and utilizing them. To achieve this, we are conducting ongoing community outreach through a variety of social media, traditional media, and on-the-ground methods. We are also working closely with Redwood Coast Medical Services and other community partners to conduct regular Community Needs Assessments, which will help drive resources and funding to our region.
