With national and state leaders worrying about fiscal health and costs, Connecticut’s health center leaders swung into action with their own homegrown remedy. The result was a clever outreach campaign with a simple message: “Your Personal Prescription to Cut CT’s High Health Care Costs.” The CT Community Health Care Alliance also followed through with a big prescription bottle (with mint lifesavers inside) and directions on how to effectively use the medication at a time when the state’s hospital utilization rates have grown to over 429,000 visits. The prescription campaign made a big splash at the state capitol, also. We thought it was a creative way to get the message through to decision-makers about the value of health centers to produce results and cost-savings. Our hat goes off to the Community Health Center Association of Connecticut , and the brilliant minds of Connecticut’s health center leaders!
