A new coalition that is focusing on a coordinated approach to ensuring individuals have access to health services, that they are using those services, and that individuals understand and can navigate through the health care system. Access to Health Services meets the 1st Wednesday of each month at 8am-9am in the Manitowoc County Health Department conference room (on the second floor).
Future Action Items
- Use 2019 Hospital Needs Assessment data coming out in May to identify underlying reasons for unmet health care needs
- Develop a formalized community health navigation program for Manitowoc County
- Educate individuals about how to access services and use insurance
- Maintain and expand the existing Falls Prevention Coalition efforts in place in Manitowoc
