The H.O.P.E. For Health Campaign “Hospitals Offering Prevention For Everyone”Mia Arias, MPA & Heather Kun, SD, PhDNational Health Foundation Introduction Programs Anticipated Outcomes Limitations • The National Health Foundation (NHF)a non-profit organization, and the Hospital Association of Southern California (HASC) have collaborated to develop the HOPE “Hospitals Offering Prevention for Everyone” for Health Campaign. This campaign brings together hospitals across Southern California in a coordinated effort to provide patients and communities with chronic disease prevention and management services. Participating hospitals will provide a series of community-based programs that target high-incidence chronic diseases. • Participating Hospitals • Huntington Hospital- Pasadena, CA • White Memorial Medical Center-Los Angeles, CA • San Antonio Community Hospital-San Bernardino, CA • Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center-Pomona, CA • St. Francis Medical Center-Lynwood, CA • Torrance Memorial Medical Center-Torrance, CA • California Hospital Medical Center-Los Angeles, CA • HELP-Childhood Obesity Program • BMI<85% for children 5-12 ages • Reduced weight or weight gain velocities • Normal cholesterol levels • Reduced body fat % • Reduced waist circumference • Improved food/drink selection • Increased exercise frequency and duration • Reduced TV screen time • Decreased fast food purchases • Successive programs to be implemented through the campaign will include a childhood obesity program, type 2 diabetes program and cardiovascular disease program. • Additional programs will be developed based on identified need. • Campaign programs build upon each other and share core messages focusing on promoting healthy lifestyles and the prevention of chronic disease and related co-morbidities. • All programs will run for a minimum of one year through the campaign. • Hospitals are encouraged to sustain the programs after the one year period. Results Web Based Data Collection Objective • Participant surveys will collect clinical measures (weight, height, BMI, waist circumference) well as self-reported behavior and knowledge data related to nutrition and physical activity. • Data is collected at three time points: pre- and post- the workshop series and 3-6 months after the last workshop for follow-up. • Data collected by hospitals will be entered into a web-based data collection system developed and maintained by NHF. • Through the database, hospitals can run real time reports to view their own progress as well as view the aggregate progress of all hospitals. • Data analysis will be conducted by NHF and will be presented to hospitals on a quarterly basis as well as in a year-end report. Summary Discussion Background • The HOPE for Health Campaign is based off the model and work of the Los Angeles Chronic Disease Management Consortium (CDMC). • CDMC is a group of five hospitals located in Los Angeles County that over the past 10 years have successfully developed, piloted and evaluated multiple chronic disease management programs. • Utilizing a consortium model, community-based programs are developed and implemented by a multidisciplinary team including physicians, nurses, social workers, promotoras etc. • NHF provides facilitation of the collaborative and conducts evaluation of all programs. • To -date programs implemented have improved health outcomes for participants and have provided over 15,000 children and families with chronic disease prevention and management education. Acknowledgements • The HOPE Campaign will kick-off by targeting childhood obesity. • Hospitals will implement the Healthy Eating Lifestyles Program (HELP) a program curriculum developed by the CDMC, or will use the campaign evaluation process for an existing childhood obesity program. • HELP and hospital childhood obesity programs are family focused and emphasize life-long improved eating and physical activity habits. Conclusions • Members of the Los Angeles Chronic Disease Management Consortium, especially Coralyn AndresTaylor, MPH, RD, CHES, Marta Connor and Dr. Lynn Yonekura. • Hospital Association of Southern California, especially Jim Barber. • UniHealth Foundation and the Good Hope Medical Foundation for their generous support of the HELP program.
