CCNYPA Slippery Rock University's Healthy Hearts VISTA
 
 
 
Healthy Heart, Health Futures programs, through the BHS LifeStyle Medicine Institute (LSMI), are designed to help low-income individuals more effectively manage the social determinants of their chronic heart disease, leading to a higher quality of life, reduced health care costs, and greater disposable income for other needs such as housing, education, food. Healthy Hearts, Healthy Futures full-time staff, with participant input, will construct a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan that refers a patient to relevant BHS clinica support services (nutritionist/dietician, Diabetic Support Group, Healthy Foods Center, licensed counselors, etc) as well as to community-based programs, such as food banks, housing services, child care options, job training and other initiatives that would help the patient manage their various social determinants of health. VISTA Responsibility: Using a collective impact approach, the Institute will create systems that strengthen networks among BHS medical support services, community-based non-medical support, and SRU to ensure a seamless continuum of care that enhances the quality of life of those participating in the Healthy Hearts, Healthy Futures program. In general, the VISTA will 1) catalog available existing non-medical support services and identify gaps in delivery for individuals with chronic heart disease, 2) leverage community and SRU support to address the gaps facilitate, and 3) design and manage a repository for Healthy Hearts, Healthy Futures program information, data, reports, etc.
