YEAR IN REVIEW
As we head into 2020, it is exciting to share the progress we have made toward the goals of the HIP Strategic Plan published in 2015. With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and our partners’ individual and collaborative efforts to strengthen the safety net, Santa Cruz County has expanded coverage and access, as well as improved quality of care. However, challenges for patients persist in the system and looming threats to the ACA require that HIP continues to serve as a nexus of collaboration, innovation and activism.
The 2019 HIP Annual Report provides an overview of accomplishments this year, complimented by the HIP Strategic Framework and 2024 HIP Horizon. Together, these visuals ground us in HIP’s mission, as well as our role in supporting healthcare partners in their goals and collective efforts to address social determinants of health and achieve health equity.
This year, an expanded version of our Annual Report will live on our website to provide further details on HIP’s array of programs. We also envision that the 2024 HIP Horizon serve as a dynamic visual representation of our agility and responsiveness to the constant change in the healthcare environment.

HIP Program Highlights
Annual HIP Community Forum (Community Forum)
The HIP Community Forum embodies the core of HIP’s work: to improve the health of the community through collaborative partnership. The Community Forum convenes a wide spectrum of Community Members, from students and individuals to stakeholders and Elected Officials, to celebrate local achievements and listen to nationally renowned experts. 2020 will see the 13th year of the Community Forum.
Complex Care Coordination (CCC)
Aware of the local landscape with regard to Complex Care Coordination, HIP has been promoting awareness of and alignment among various programs. The programs below are focused on improving care and health outcomes for our community’s most complex patients by supporting their needs through coordinating care across care settings including hospitals, primary care, and social service organizations. In partnership with the Santa Cruz Health Information Organization, HIP provided leadership in the process of selecting a community care coordination platform for client data sharing. With improved information sharing systems we expect patients to experience better care and health outcomes. The HIP team is deeply invested in a collaborative approach to problem solving; we actively promote awareness of specific local care coordination programs and facilitate their alignment. Read more...
