Granting Agencies Provide Vital Support


Government and private foundation grants play a critical role in determining how much good we can do for the health of our
communities. We were gratified in 2009 to be awarded $1.6 million in funds that will touch the lives of patients throughout
the Asante service area. Here are additional grants not mentioned elsewhere in this report:
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) awarded two grants, both for partnership efforts:
r" Telehealth Network grant will be used by home care agencies in five counties. Telehealth will improve
outcomes for discharged elderly patients and reduce hospital readmissions and Emergency Department visits using
home health care and home-based health coaching.
r" HRSA Rural Services Outreach grant was awarded to Three Rivers Community Hospital for work
with home care agencies from three counties to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations for patients with congestive
heart failure.
"  Care Oregon award will improve patient care processes for glycemic management for diabetes patients and
for post-operative nausea and vomiting.
"  Period of PURPLE Crying grant from the Children’s Trust of Oregon will provide parent education to
prevent shaken baby syndrome, the most common cause of death in child abuse cases. This vital effort is in partnership
with four hospitals, three federally qualified health centers, and seven other community partners.
