CCHN has recently embarked on a more direct role in addressing the burden of chronic disease on the local health care delivery system. Here are some of the initiatives supported through CCHN.

Care Transitions

Through funding from a HRSA grant, CCHN has provided funding for six local provider offices to be trained using the innovative Care Transitions Program® model developed by Dr. Eric Coleman. The program is designed to:

  • support patients and families;
  • increase skills among healthcare providers;
  • enhance the ability of health information technology to promote health information exchange across care settings;
  • implement system level interventions to improve quality and safety;
  • develop performance measures and public reporting mechanisms

For further information about any of these Quality Management initiatives provided by CCHN, contact Lynn Wigren at 716-338-0010 or wigren@cchn.net.

Diabetes Prevention Program

The National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) is a proven way to prevent diabetes in people who have pre-diabetes or are at risk for diabetes, by making small lifestyle changes.

Developed by the Indiana University School of Medicine, NDPP participants meet in a group setting over a 16-week period followed by monthly meetings where personal lifestyle goals are set for each individual.  Each one hour session covers diet, exercise and behavior modification to help participants reduce and maintain individual weight loss by 5-7% and participate in regular physical activity.The program helps participants learn to improve food choices, increase physical activity and learn coping skills to maintain weight loss and healthy lifestyle changes.

CCHN recently received a grant from the New York State Health Foundation to expand NDPP locally and will be working with local hospitals, the Department of Health and Human Services, The Chautauqua Center, and local employers to train new leaders and offer programs throughout the county in 2014. Please stay tuned for updated information.
