RE: S.R. No. 22
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Health, to which was referred S.R. No. 22 entitled:
"SENATE RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE OFFICE OF PRIMARY CARE AND RURAL HEALTH TO FACILITATE DISCUSSIONS WITH KEY COMMUNITY HEALTH AND SOCIAL SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS WITHIN WEST HAWAII AND MAJOR HEALTHCARE STAKEHOLDERS IN SENATE DISTRICT 3 TO ADDRESS THE HEALTH AND WELLNESS NEEDS OF THE MOST VULNERABLE BY ALIGNING THE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF KEY ORGANIZATIONS INTO ONE SHARED 2030 HEALTH VISION PLAN,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to request that the Office of Primary Care and Rural Health facilitate discussions with key community health and social service organizations in west Hawaii and major health care stakeholders in Senate District 3 to address the health and wellness needs of the most vulnerable communities by aligning the goals and objectives of key organizations into a 2030 One Shared Health Vision Plan.
Your Committee received comments on this measure from the Department of Health.
Your Committee finds that the purpose of the "One Shared Vision" plan is to improve public health by strengthening collaboration and communication among all sectors of the health care community. Your Committee also finds that establishing a strong health network based in west Hawaii in accordance with the One Shared Vision plan would allow the region to serve as a model for the State.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Health that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of S.R. No. 22 and recommends its adoption.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Health,
JARRETT KEOHOKALOLE, Chair
