Security Health Plan Focused on Health Literacy
OnFocus – Security Health Plan of Wisconsin released its annual report of community benefits for 2017: Taking Care: A Community Investment. The report highlights many of the ways Security Health Plan in partnership with Marshfield Clinic Health System invested in the communities they serve.
As a non-profit organization, Security Health Plan is focused on helping people and communities achieve their best health. In 2017 that promise was backed through community partnerships that extended to all 49 counties in Security Health Plan’s service area. The investments highlighted in the report focus on three primary areas: aging health, behavioral health and children’s health. Across each initiative there was a focus on improving health literacy.
“Security Health Plan is extremely proud to support our local organizations by providing them with resources to improve the health of the communities we serve. This work is part of who we are and it is the right thing to do,” said Julie Brussow, chief executive officer of Security Health Plan.
Marshfield Clinic Health System’s Center for Community Health Advancement recently completed a new community assessment and updated its three areas of focus in response to feedback from community partners. A refreshed model for community benefits investments being rolled out in 2018 is focusing on alcohol and substance abuse, behavioral health and chronic conditions.
At Security Health Plan there is a belief that people play an essential role in their own health care – and the more they know, the more they can take better care.
