Mission The Health Alliance for the Uninsured is a catalyst for improved healthcare services for those who otherwise would be unable to obtain them.
The Health Alliance for the Uninsured (HAU) engages community partners in collaborative solutions to unmet health needs of low-income and uninsured persons. HAU, partnering with Good Shepherd Ministries, the Homeless Alliance, and Oklahoma County Social Services, began the Cooperative Central Pharmacy in August 2008. It serves low-income Oklahoma County residents and patients of free/charitable health clinics, with 88,052 prescriptions filled on site through 10/31/19 and 180,000+ filled through bulk medications provided to clinics. In 2012, HAU added field staff that are trained to enroll patients in pharmaceutical company assistance programs. From July 2012 through October 2019, HAU's 2 FTE staff secured almost $17 million in free insulin, inhalers, blood pressure medications, Hepatitis C medications, and other prescriptions for patients of safety-net clinic partners.
In 2011-2012, HAU undertook a major effort to transform the fragmented health safety net in central Oklahoma into a coordinated system. Each month, HAU receives over 200 specialty or surgery referrals and coordinates with additional partners to achieve more timely access to needed services, while avoiding any duplication of resource usage.
The Health Alliance for the Uninsured (HAU) coordinated diagnostic and specialty care, including surgeries, for 15,035 income, uninsured patients of safety net health clinics in Oklahoma County January 2013 - October 2019. The most frequently needed services are radiology, cardiology, gastroenterology, general surgery, and ophthalmology. Diabetic eye exams identify individuals needing procedures to stop the progression of diabetic retinopathy, thus preserving vision for patients living with the most common diagnosis among low-income, uninsured persons. By utilizing physicians who donate their services and hospitals who provide their services, HAU continues to improve access to cardiology, nephrology, pulmonology and other care through the Care Connection program it has developed.
HAU maintains a strong focus on improving access to prescription medications, understanding that consistent access to these saves lives, improves and maintains health, and has a positive impact on worker productivity and quality of life.  Over 170,000 prescriptions have been filled for patients living with chronic health conditions such as diabetes, lung disease, high blood pressure and arthritis. In addition, HAU's 2 FTE medication access staff have secured almost $17 million in free prescription medications by enrolling patients in assistance programs through pharmaceutical companies. The most recent accomplishment is the successful navigation of the complicated process to obtain the new medications that have greatly improved treatment of Hepatitis C. The course of treatment for one patient has a minimum value of $84,000. 
Ongoing goals include expanding diagnostic and specialty volunteer base and advocating for HAU's target population of low-income, uninsured Oklahomans.
HAU's most pressing need is funding to maintain the level of staffing needed to assist patients at HAU's partner clinics. Specific needs include funding to support the medication access staff positions and the bilingual referral coordinator position.
HAU has an ongoing need for additional physicians in certain specialties to accept referrals and provide volunteer services. HAU also seeks new partnerships with specialty hospitals, imaging centers, providers of physical therapy and dialysis, to name only a few. 
CEO/Executive Director Statement
The Health Alliance for the Uninsured demonstrates its commitment to improve health care for low-income, uninsured individuals and families by implementing collaborative solutions to unmet health needs in central Oklahoma. HAU began because of the concern Dr. Murali Krishna has for the medically underserved. Dr. Krishna very effectively brought together hospital CEOs, medical leaders, agencies and community organizations that all share this concern. The strengths of the Health Alliance include the diversity of stakeholders that consistently come together to focus on the unmet health needs of thousands in Oklahoma County and HAU's reputation for following through on commitments. By working together, innovative programs and services have been developed and these have a great impact on the individual, family, and community.
The Health Alliance and its many partners continue to look at the impact of the Affordable Care Act, changes at the national level and state level, and focus its efforts on the needs that remain. Though some formerly uninsured Oklahomans now have health insurance, the decision to not expand Medicaid has left many low-income Oklahomans in a gap - earning too much for Medicaid and too little for insurance premium assistance. These thousands of working adults deserve access to quality health care in other to stay employed and contribute to family and community life. HAU assists an estimated 13,000 individuals each year.
Board Chair Statement At a time when the health care needs of many Oklahoma County residents vastly exceed their ability to access affordable health care services, the HAU functions as a unique community resource by identifying, assembling and coordinating specialty care services and medication services to several independent free clinics. Guiding this mission is a committed board of volunteer directors. The HAU board is comprised of men and women experienced and/or actively involved in the health care community or as business/community leaders. Together with superb, dedicated staff, HAU continually seeks to engage the broader health care and business community in working together to positively affect the lives of the medically underserved.

Description A unique public/private partnership, the Cooperative Central Pharmacy is open Mondays and Wednesdays serving low-income and uninsured persons and provides bulk medications to free clinics for dispensing to patients. By working together, Oklahoma County Social Services Department, the Homeless Alliance, and HAU, with critical support by funding partners, are helping solve access issues related to medications. In addition, HAU Medication Access staff undertake the complicated process of enrolling safety-net clinic patients in pharmaceutical company prescription assistance programs that provide free medications on an ongoing basis. This is a multi-step process that differs by company and medication, but brings tremendous improvement in medication compliance for patients.  
Population Served Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent Adults Homeless
Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program. The component of the program that can most readily be measured is patient participation in prescription assistance programs. HAU staff maintain frequent contact with these patients due to the ongoing document submission needed to secure medications every 90-120 days. Over 90% of patients comply with the program requirements, indicating strong motivation to maintain or improve their health.
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state. Those patients provided with prescription medications for acute illnesses will experience improved health and be able to return to work and/or improved functioning in family and community life. Those patients with one or more chronic health conditions will experience improved or stabilized health, which will increase opportunities for work, school/job training, family and community participation, and will decrease the chance of the development of serious health conditions. When possible, outcomes will be collected; though resources limit in-depth follow up.
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact. The patient assistance program component is monitored by direct contact or interview with each participating patient. These contacts are recorded and include notes about outcomes such as 1)patient was able to return to work, 2) patient was able to reduce diabetes medication due to improved compliance with diet and activity plan, or 3) patient reduced/eliminated tobacco use. Likewise, less positive health trending may be reflected in increased dependence on medications for chronic illnesses and HAU medication access staff is part of the interdisciplinary team that works with patients to turn those around.
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success.
Since January 2014, 2 FTE HAU staff secured $11,249,377 in prescription medications through pharmaceutical company programs. One success story is a 35 year-old man whose diabetes had not been controlled and he was unable to work. After six months of consistent access to medications and diabetes education, he found employment with health insurance and "graduated" from dependence on the program.
In addition, over 79,000 prescriptions were filled onsite at the satellite pharmacy near downtown Oklahoma City and approximately 140,000 prescriptions have been filled through bulk prescription medications provided to charitable clinics to dispense directly to their patients.  
Description Care Connection coordinates diagnostic and specialty care, including surgeries, for patients of safety-net clinics in Oklahoma County. HAU recruits physicians, hospital, and other community providers that can help meet those needs. HAU's Medical Director and nurses review referral requests from partner clinics and coordinate access to donated services. This process requires frequent communication with safety-net clinic providers and staff, recruitment of additional specialists and resources, and documentation to ensure appropriate and timely access to care.
Population Served Adults Unemployed, Underemployed, Dislocated People/Families of People with Health Conditions
Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program. Care Connection's short-term successes include individual outcomes, such as timely access to surgery for individuals with diseased gallbladders, hernias, and malignancies. Access to specialists to diagnose and recommend treatment plans for complex gastrointestinal, endocrine, or neurological conditions is vital, as such care is outside general primary care management.
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state. HAU believes Care Connection impacts individual lives by providing timely access to needed diagnostic and specialty care, thus allowing those served to experience improved health and all that can come from that - productive work, improved family relationships, and community engagement. There are also benefits to employers by the improved health of the workforce and reduced health care costs through reduced emergency room visits. All of these are challenging to directly measure.
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact.
HAU worked with a team of consultants from ESCCO, the Executive Service Corps of Central Oklahoma, to develop specific metrics of success for Care Connection. HAU utilizes a custom database specifically to track the metrics developed in consultation with the ESCCO team. These include factors that are not directly within HAU's control but HAU can help improve through communication with referring safety-net clinics, as well as patient-related factors such as attending or not attending appointments coordinated by HAU. Internal processes that will be measured focus on timeliness from complete referral received in HAU office to appointment for diagnostic or specialty care being arranged. HAU will also implement ESCCO's recommendation for measuring satisfaction of stakeholders by surveying primary care providers, specialty care providers, and patients.
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success.

“I needed my esophagus stretched because food would not go down. You could be eating and it just stops. It is very painful. The clinic set up a referral to a specialist through the Health Alliance. It happened quickly and it was a blessing. Before, I was miserable, scared to eat, losing weight. I was living on ramen noodles because it goes down easy.

The job I was on, I couldn’t afford the health insurance at $1,200 a month. That procedure would probably have cost me $3,000 - $4,000. I don’t know what I would have done without the clinic and without the Health Alliance. Now I take a pill every day for acid reflux and it keeps it calmed down.

I would talk to others that need help and tell them that this clinic really cares and they send you to get things done properly.” Malvern Montgomery, age 55

In 2015, HAU assisted 3,941 patients with diagnostic tests that range from chest x-ray to mammograms and colonoscopies, and with specialty consults and a variety of surgeries.
Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments HAU is holding steady in a rapidly changing health care environment that certainly impacts our target population of low-income, uninsured persons, but also impacts the physicians, hospitals and other health service providers that face tremendous financial uncertainty. HAU has a strong board of directors that provides effective governance during this time of change. HAU also has developed many partnerships with safety-net clinics and community partners and this ongoing communication and collaboration helps HAU define its role as a catalyst for improved health care for those who would otherwise be unable to obtain it. HAU actively examines the causes of unmet needs and works with existing and new partners in order to implement innovative solutions.

Comments on Staff & Management
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments HAU improves access to needed health services while staying informed of local, state, and federal decisions that impact individuals and HAU partners. Working on behalf of the medically vulnerable is challenging; however, HAU strives to maintain and even expand access in the short term, while advocating for better long-term solutions.

Comments on Financials
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments
Though HAU does not receive state funding, HAU, its partners, and people assisted have been greatly impacted by state financial shortfalls. This has left more people needing HAU services at a time that HAU faces much greater competition for private dollars, as organizations that lost state funding must replace those dollars with private dollars.
HAU is widening its funding efforts to include more individual donors and additional foundations, including several outside of Oklahoma.
Board members are taking on more responsibility for ensuring financial stability; however, HAU faces funding challenges that impact its ability to maintain adequate staffing levels to respond to the health needs in the community.
