Distribution of funds to The Cheshire Medical Center in accordance with donor stipulations.
The Cheshire Health Foundation is committed to continued support of the work of the Center for Population Health (CPH) at Cheshire Medical Center. The CPH provides backbone support for numerous community health improvement initiatives that align with the Greater Monadnock Community Health Improvement Plan and the Healthy Monadnock initiative. Healthy Monadnock is a community engagement initiative designed to foster and sustain a positive culture of health through the Monadnock region. Funding from the CHF supports the following programs and projects: - Community Health Education Programs: The programs offered a variety of chronic disease and wellness topics such as: stress management and resiliency, nutrition, physical education and exercise, high blood pressure prevention and monitoring, diabetes prevention and monitoring, advanced directive planning, memory loss, tobacco cessation and writing as tool to manage stress. A total of 1,008 community members participated in the 81 educational programs offered. All programs are offered free of charge. - Senior Passport: This is a program for area residents aged 60 years and above. It encompasses low cost complete evening and weekend meals; free health education programs oriented to seniors; exercise programs; and the Cheshire Walkers Program, a walking group that takes organized nature and historic walks. During FY2017 5,409 meals were provided to program members and a total of 413 seniors attended the walking program. This represents about an 8% increase in the number of meals and 76% increase in the number of participants in Cheshire Walkers from last year. - Healthy Monadnock Initiative: This initiative supports the implementation of population level environmental strategies that promote wellness and prevent the leading causes of death in the community. The "Champions Program" engages individuals, schools, and organizations to take steps to improve health at a personal and institutional level. As of June 30, 2017, there are 3,582 individual champions, 182 organizational champions, and 25 school champions. - Tobacco Cessation Assistance: The CMC/DHK Tobacco Treatment Program provides inpatient and outpatient tobacco cessation treatment while continuing to engage with the community through policy and systems change work. As of June 30, 2017, the program received 579 referrals from providers and provided face to face interventions for patients while also conducting sessions in worksites and the community. - Family Resource Counseling Program: This program provides Information & Referral services to patients and community members for available resources (local, state & federal). As of June 30, 2017, the FRC provided assistance to 504 newborns, children, and adults. - Medication Assistance Program: This program provides assistance to patients needing help to secure medications because they lack insurance coverage or financial resources to pay for their medications, which now includes elderly residents with Medicare who experience a gap in their Medicare D coverage. In FY2017 the program supplied 318 prescriptions to 81 individuals valued at $368,384, compared to 1,073 prescriptions to 252 individuals in FY2016. - Community Health Clinical Integration: Since 2010, the Community-Clinical Integration effort has been led by a clinician (MD) who brings clinical expertise to local coalitions and ties community coalition work to clinical activities and goals. This initiative currently spans a broad range of topics, such as: + The Prescribe for Health Initiative that employs two full-time Population Health Workers and an on-line Resource Guide and allows clinical staff to address non-medical social and behavioral needs by "prescribing" to social supports and resources. During FY17 there were 78 participants. + Advance Care Planning (ACP) Initiative called Honoring Care Decisions that follows the nationally-recognized Respecting Choices model and trains community-based volunteers and integrates with ACP efforts in primary care to have ACP conversations with individuals and couples in order for them to make their end-of-life desires known through advance directives. + Promotion of Breastfeeding Initiative working through a coalition combining clinical and community representatives with actions including informing and supporting new mothers, working to make public nursing a social norm, and advancing breastfeeding policy in the workplace. This includes a recent messaging campaign that included community-placement of life-size photo "standees" of local women nursing their infants. + Diabetes Prevention Program development in cooperation with Monadnock Family Services, the Keene Family YMCA and the Keene Senior Center. The program is offered in community settings and has shown a high level of participant continuation, weight loss and achievement of program goals. During FY17 there were thirty-three participants. This Program will continue in FY2018. + Participation in the SCALE 1.0 and 2.0 Initiatives of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, especially in the new SCALE Health and Care Initiative to involve 500 US hospital systems in addressing equity and population health. + State-supported dissemination of the co-authored "10 Steps for Improving Blood Pressure Control in New Hampshire" to rural health clinics in northern NH and Vermont in a project coordinated by the UNH Institute for Health Policy and Practice and the Community Health Institute/JSI. + Planning for the implementation of the HRSA-grant supported Controlled Substance Management Network, a coalition to address the overuse, misuse and abuse of prescription medications. - Staffing support for a variety of community based and/or Cheshire Medical staff led coalitions: + Greater Monadnock Public Health Network (GMPHN): GMPHN is a community health and safety collaborative which works to enhance and improve public health-related services. The GMPHN is one of 13 public health networks in the state of New Hampshire. There are three major focuses of the work: 1. Development of a governance structure for the public health advisory board 2. Public health emergency preparedness with all region partners including municipalities, long-term care and assisted living facilities, schools, and businesses. It is made up of members of each of the coalition communities as well as representatives of regional organizations involved in providing for the publics health and safety. 3.

Program descriptionThe Cheshire Health Foundation is committed to continued support of the work of the Center for Population Health (CPH) at Cheshire Medical Center. The CPH provides backbone support for numerous community health improvement initiatives that align with the Greater Monadnock Community Health Improvement Plan and the Healthy Monadnock initiative. Healthy Monadnock is a community engagement initiative designed to foster and sustain a positive culture of health through the Monadnock region. Funding from the CHF supports the following programs and projects: - Community Health Education Programs: The programs offered a variety of chronic disease and wellness topics such as: stress management and resiliency, nutrition, physical education and exercise, high blood pressure prevention and monitoring, diabetes prevention and monitoring, advanced directive planning, memory loss, tobacco cessation and writing as tool to manage stress. A total of 1,008 community members participated in the 81 educational programs offered. All programs are offered free of charge. - Senior Passport: This is a program for area residents aged 60 years and above. It encompasses low cost complete evening and weekend meals; free health education programs oriented to seniors; exercise programs; and the Cheshire Walkers Program, a walking group that takes organized nature and historic walks. During FY2017 5,409 meals were provided to program members and a total of 413 seniors attended the walking program. This represents about an 8% increase in the number of meals and 76% increase in the number of participants in Cheshire Walkers from last year. - Healthy Monadnock Initiative: This initiative supports the implementation of population level environmental strategies that promote wellness and prevent the leading causes of death in the community. The "Champions Program" engages individuals, schools, and organizations to take steps to improve health at a personal and institutional level. As of June 30, 2017, there are 3,582 individual champions, 182 organizational champions, and 25 school champions. - Tobacco Cessation Assistance: The CMC/DHK Tobacco Treatment Program provides inpatient and outpatient tobacco cessation treatment while continuing to engage with the community through policy and systems change work. As of June 30, 2017, the program received 579 referrals from providers and provided face to face interventions for patients while also conducting sessions in worksites and the community. - Family Resource Counseling Program: This program provides Information & Referral services to patients and community members for available resources (local, state & federal). As of June 30, 2017, the FRC provided assistance to 504 newborns, children, and adults. - Medication Assistance Program: This program provides assistance to patients needing help to secure medications because they lack insurance coverage or financial resources to pay for their medications, which now includes elderly residents with Medicare who experience a gap in their Medicare D coverage. In FY2017 the program supplied 318 prescriptions to 81 individuals valued at $368,384, compared to 1,073 prescriptions to 252 individuals in FY2016. - Community Health Clinical Integration: Since 2010, the Community-Clinical Integration effort has been led by a clinician (MD) who brings clinical expertise to local coalitions and ties community coalition work to clinical activities and goals. This initiative currently spans a broad range of topics, such as: + The Prescribe for Health Initiative that employs two full-time Population Health Workers and an on-line Resource Guide and allows clinical staff to address non-medical social and behavioral needs by "prescribing" to social supports and resources. During FY17 there were 78 participants. + Advance Care Planning (ACP) Initiative called Honoring Care Decisions that follows the nationally-recognized Respecting Choices model and trains community-based volunteers and integrates with ACP efforts in primary care to have ACP conversations with individuals and couples in order for them to make their end-of-life desires known through advance directives. + Promotion of Breastfeeding Initiative working through a coalition combining clinical and community representatives with actions including informing and supporting new mothers, working to make public nursing a social norm, and advancing breastfeeding policy in the workplace. This includes a recent messaging campaign that included community-placement of life-size photo "standees" of local women nursing their infants. + Diabetes Prevention Program development in cooperation with Monadnock Family Services, the Keene Family YMCA and the Keene Senior Center. The program is offered in community settings and has shown a high level of participant continuation, weight loss and achievement of program goals. During FY17 there were thirty-three participants. This Program will continue in FY2018. + Participation in the SCALE 1.0 and 2.0 Initiatives of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, especially in the new SCALE Health and Care Initiative to involve 500 US hospital systems in addressing equity and population health. + State-supported dissemination of the co-authored "10 Steps for Improving Blood Pressure Control in New Hampshire" to rural health clinics in northern NH and Vermont in a project coordinated by the UNH Institute for Health Policy and Practice and the Community Health Institute/JSI. + Planning for the implementation of the HRSA-grant supported Controlled Substance Management Network, a coalition to address the overuse, misuse and abuse of prescription medications. - Staffing support for a variety of community based and/or Cheshire Medical staff led coalitions: + Greater Monadnock Public Health Network (GMPHN): GMPHN is a community health and safety collaborative which works to enhance and improve public health-related services. The GMPHN is one of 13 public health networks in the state of New Hampshire. There are three major focuses of the work: 1. Development of a governance structure for the public health advisory board 2. Public health emergency preparedness with all region partners including municipalities, long-term care and assisted living facilities, schools, and businesses. It is made up of members of each of the coalition communities as well as representatives of regional organizations involved in providing for the publics health and safety. 3.
