Mission Statement

Health Partnership Clinic is dedicated to improving the health of the communities we serve through the provision of high quality, affordable, accessible and culturally appropriate care to all individuals regardless of ability to pay.

Health Partnership Clinic is committed to serving as a vehicle for collaboration among community partners as a critical aspect of meeting our mission.

Background Statement

Health Partnership Clinic was established as a result of a grassroots effort amongst several entities including the Johnson County Health Department, Medical Society of Wyandotte County and Johnson Counties, United Community Services and five Johnson Coutny hospitals to address access to charitable health services for the uninsured of Johnson County. The Clinic opened its Overland Park location in 1992 to provide primary acute and limited chronic care to low income uninsured Johnson Countians. The Olathe location opened in 2000, to which dental services were added in 2002. Today, the Health Partnership Clinic is Johnson County’s largest and most comprehensive safety-net clinic. In order to increase access to care, the Overland Park clinic relocated to a facility double in size in October 2008.  In January 2011, the Olathe clinic relocated to a larger facility in order to better meet the needs of the community.  In July, 2012, HPC gained federal Community Health Center status and expanded its Olathe location and opened a new clinic in Paola.  In July 2013, HPC added behavioral health services through integrated behavioral health visits.  In 2015, HPC added a satellite clinic in Franklin County.  In 2016, HPC added a pediatric practice in Shawnee Mission.  In 2017, the Ottawa Clinic relocated. In 2018, HPC added a school-based health clinic in Merriam through a partnership with Shawnee Mission School District.

Impact Statement
Health Partnership Clinic provides access to affordable medical, dental and behavioral health care to all individuals, regardless of income level or insurance status--no one is denied access to care.  HPC's goal is to provide high quality health care services for the underserved.  HPC's Patient Centered Medical Home Model of Care utilizes a team-based approach to patient care, promoting disease prevention and management for whole-person wellness. 
 
Top Accomplishments for 2017 include:  
  1. Served as a health care home for low income residents. In 2017, HPC provided 39,210 patient visits for 15,404 unduplicated patients, indicating that patients utilize HPC as their ongoing source of care, averaging 2.54 visits per patient, as opposed to the emergency department.
  2. Improving the health of the community and helping families to achieve self sufficiency. By serving as health home to the uninsured, low-income, and under-insured, HPC helps to keep patients healthy. When patients are healthy they are able to retain employment, improve their family's economic status and pay for healthcare services.
  3. HPC continues to provide behavioral health integration services.  All patients are screened using behavioral health vitals (screening for depression, substance abuse, domestic violence), and when screenings are positive, HPC’s behavioral health consultants provide brief intervention to immediately address behavioral health needs of patients.  HPC also uses protocols to ensure patients at high risk of mental health issues receive a brief behavioral health intervention with their medical appointments (e.g., all chronic disease patients and low income children).  Using the integrated model of care minimizes the negative stigma associated with mental health services and connects patients with mental health providers for brief intervention or long-term therapy.
Top Goals for 2018:
  1. HPC opened a school-based health clinic in partnership with the Shawnee Mission School District in Merriam.  HPC will provide access to medical, dental and behavioral health services at this location, which will be open to students, parents/caregivers, and community members.
  2. HPC is launching a new website with a mobile platform.  This enhanced website will provide many benefits including easily fillable forms for use with mobile devices.
  3. HPC is expanding dental outreach services through implementation of tele-dentistry services.  This service will maximize dental outreach clinic efficiency and improve the rate of dental treatment plan completion. 
Needs Statement

Johnson County’s growth in persons living in poverty exceeds both the state and nation’s rising poverty levels.  These individuals and families face significant health disparities, such as a lack of insurance or income to pay for health care.  CDC studies confirm that persons living in lower socioeconomic circumstances are at increased risk for mortality, morbidity, unhealthy behaviors and have reduced access to health care services. Johnson County has 40,553 residents who report being uninsured according to 2015 Census estimates (5-year).  Of these residents, 54.4% report income levels at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines and 22.6% report living in poverty.  Employment status of these uninsured residents includes 66.0% who report being employed, yet not having insurance—a sign of numerous working poor.   

Top Five Needs Include:
  1. Operational funding to offset the high cost of uncompensated care due to the high percentage of uninsured patients, 48.4%.
  2. Capital improvement expenses for expansion.
  3. Funding for supplies and equipment.
  4. Specialists accepting referrals of HPC's patients.
  5. Expanded Medicaid coverage to assist low-income patients.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement Fundamental to the goals set forth by Health Partnership Clinic's Board of Directors is the ability of HPC to provide a medical home to patients in need. The numbers of uninsured in Johnson County are growing rapidly as those in poverty grow; in 2016, 40,693 Johnson County residents were in poverty and uninsured, while 2,346 were uninsured in Miami County and 2,017 in Franklin County.      

Health Partnership Clinic experienced a surge in the demand for its services. The Clinic offered care to 15,404 patients through more than 39,216 total patient visits – a record high. Rather than simply keep pace with the economic crisis, however, Health Partnership Clinic committed to do even more. In every area of our organization, we have chosen to adapt, innovate and collaborate rather than just wringing our hands over the mounting challenges.  We made progress in improving efficiency and enhancing patient care while upholding commitments to major initiatives that included expanded access to care, education, and medications.The medical landscape continues to be uncertain, and we are mindful of changes that health reform has brought. We are confident, however, that HPC’s commitment to adapt, innovate and collaborate with our partners and community will sustain and strengthen our organization in the years to come. We thank everyone who contributed to Health Partnership Clinic in 2017  and, with your ongoing support, we are ready for the challenge ahead.  From a leadership perspective, our greatest challenges are attracting and retaining qualified staff, meeting the growing burden of the uninsured in Kansas when medicaid has not been expanded and keeping step with technology.

HPC's electronic health record, eClinical Works, is a fully integrated dental record, which monitors patient data. 
Examples of Program Success Over the past year, HPC’s dental team worked with the medical team to promote dental health for patients diagnosed with diabetes, as these patients are at increased risk of periodontal disease. Provider staff educated patients on the importance of regular dental exams, and HPC’s care coordination staff scheduled dental appointments for patients—connecting them with a dental home. HPC is currently working to integrate dental care with pediatric medical care insuring all children have both medical and dental visits.

CEO Comments
Health Partnership Clinic has continued to expand programs that provide whole person care in an integrated setting.  Teams from each of the programs work together to meet all of the needs of the patient.  At the same time, work has been done to expand these services into the community through a variety of efforts including expanding services to include a newly opened school-based clinic at Merriam Park Elementary School in the Shawnee Mission School District.  We continue to provide dental outreach services and behavioral health services in the Olathe School District.  Health Partnership Clinic provide-on-site health services at a local women's domestic violence center.  A nurse practitioner rides with a firefighter/paramedic in staffing the Olathe Mobile Integrated Unit.  This takes the services to people in need and then helps them establish a medical home at Health Partnership Clinic.  All of these efforts are aimed at helping to provide easy access to quality care in a medical home setting.

Health Partnership has a Board of 14 of which 51 percent are consumer board members.   Patients bring a fresh perspective to Clinic operations and to the decision making responsibilities of the Board of Directors and an unmatched commitment to Health Partnership Clinic.  In the past 18 months significant work has been accomplished to build the board including development of a recruitment tool to insure that board members have identified skill sets such as finance, legal and health care are included on the board.  At the same time, the tool is used to insure that there is proper geographic and demographic representation.   The board also now does an annual board evaluation to identify needs of the board but areas that need to be focused on.  Board members are also provided with monthly educational sessions in addition to board orientation.  Board committees are now also operational with charters.

Organization Comments In late 2016, Health Partnership Clinic went through a significant leadership transition.  With that came financial challenges including issues with the billing vendor.  As part of this transition, senior leaders came together to implement a financial recovery plan which included both revenue enhancements and cost reductions.  After ten months, Health Partnership Clinic has made significant improvements and is positive to budget for the current fiscal years, reversing the trend of losses.  Processes and protocols have been put into place to carefully monitor finances.  Monthly finance meetings are held with the board of directors.
