We are pleased to announce that RGVHIE will be working with Proyecto Juan Diego in support of the Group Lifestyle Balance Program. The Group Lifestyle Balance Program provides education, encouragement and the tools necessary to help individuals reach their healthy lifestyle goals. This program is designed for those, over 18 yrs of age, who are pre-diabetic or have a high risk for diabetes
RGV HIE will be providing population health analytics, quality reporting and care management solutions and services to help meet reporting requirements of the program.
Community service providers or nonprofit organizations such as Proyecto Juan Diego receive funding from a variety of sources, both public and private. To ensure money is well-spent, funders typically require grantees to report on specific metrics related to service provision, such as the number of clients being served, program outcomes, and improvements.
The RGV HIE can provide the technical infrastructure to support complex and extensive reports about the effectiveness of programs. We can help report on outcomes to demonstrate progress and justify ongoing and future funding
We are excited about this new collaboration and we are looking forward to continuing to serve the people in our community.
