Access to the Healthcare Plan

The National Quality Assurance Agency (NQCA) provides guidelines the provision of health care to all population

groups including the homeless adults abusing drugs and on the needle exchange program. The following education
plan and activity is based on the NCQA guidelines on standards of care. This plan is based on the NCCQA guideline

that requires all healthcare care facilities and programs funded by the federal government

to ensure equity on healthcare services to the homeless populations as one of the minority groups

within USA total populations.

The homeless are at the risk of missing several social services such as healthcare.

Further, persons abusing drugs are at high risk of contracting diseases transmitted through body fluid contact is key
(Sleeter & Carmona, 2016).

Access to the Healthcare Plan

The plan aims at developing more strategies aimed at addressing the healthcare access challenges

for the homeless adult populations using the needle exchange program.

The homeless are defined as persons who do not have permanent dwelling place and usually live in the streets

of cities and urban settings.

The facilities that are funded by the federal government are the healthcare programs that are funded

by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare services.

Persons enrolled on the needle exchange program are the registered members who submit

used needles and syringes and receive the same amount of needles and syringes for use.

The healthcare services focus on psychological needs and physiological conditions.

At the several points of contact with the clients, performing health risk assessment is key

(National Committee for Quality Assurance, 2014).

Data Collection

Data collection is one of standards and guidelines offered by the NCQA to improve healthcare services

for the minority populations in the USA.

This plan of care aims at collecting the relevant information from the homeless adults

enrolled in the needle exchange program.

Healthcare organizations and professionals are required to develop and fund data collection

activities on the composition and characteristics of the homeless.

The plan is a yearly survey aimed at collection of data on the demographic and other

health care indicators among the population.

Prior to data collection, respondents should be educated on the need for collecting the data.

Awareness has been found to increase the cooperation of the response during the exercise of data collection

(Boyer, Greenberg, Chutuape, Walker, Monte, Kirk, & Adolescent Medicine Trials Networ2017).

Data Collection

Education to patients has been found to increase adherence to the healthcare prescription and instruction.

The aim of the data collection plan is to monitor the changes in the characteristics of the homeless adult population
that is using the needle exchange program.

The changes in the healthcare needs of the adult homeless population group enrolled in the needle exchange

program are monitored through continuous data collection process.

Several healthcare Quality Assurance Agencies, the federal and the state laws and regulations require continuous
updating on the healthcare needs of the minority population groups in the USA.

The data specifically aims at collecting information on the number of the individual

adults in the needle exchange program and who are homeless, cultural, linguistic and social backgrounds

and healthcare assessment data.

In addition, data may be obtained from secondary sources, such the Medicare and Medicaid databases

and other health organizations and healthcare quality assurance agencies.

The secondary data sources will only be used as supplementary sources of data in addition

to the direct patient sources of data. The data is used as basis of developing healthcare plan and programmes

targeting the homeless adults who are in the needle exchange program (Clarke, Harris, Zweifler, Lasher, Mortimer,
& Hughes, 2016).

Data Collection

The collected information is supposed to be published for the access to the public and other stakeholders in
healthcare for scrutiny.

However, the clients’ right for confidentiality should be maintained.

Identification information is not disclosed for access, for example, the individual’s personal demographic details.

The data on the homeless adults on the needle exchange program should be conducted at the pint offering

healthcare.

During the assessment phase for all the patients who are in the needle exchange program, specific data

collection focus should be given to this group of clients.

Standard data collection should be adhered to across the country. The standards are supposed to be achieved by
using a uniform data collection tool.

The standard data collection process facilitates the process of auditing and assessing the quality of the data
collected for the population group (Drummond, Sculpher, Claxton, Stoddart, & Torrance, 2015).

HealthCare Needs Assessment

.

The third education plan aims at assessing the health care needs of the homeless adults in the needle exchange

program in the USA.

The NCQA has developed a guideline that requires for the reduction of health care disparities between the majority

and minority population groups in the USA.

The NCQA has that established disparities in the healthcare provision against the minority results into increase

expense of the overall national health care costs across all the population groups.

The plan aims at identifying the healthcare disparities that exist between the homeless populations

composed of the adult enrolled in the needle exchange program and the other groups of populations.

The majority population in the USA is defined in this context as the rest of the individuals who make the majority

of the total national population in the USA.

The aim of this plan is to identify the healthcare services that are available for the majority of the population

and that are not accessible to the homeless adults under the needle exchange program (Issel & Wells, 2017).

HealthCare Needs Assessment

.

The identification of the healthcare gaps is a way of identifying the existing health care needs of the population group.

Several ways are available for the identification of the needs of care for the population group.

General healthcare need assessment for the population is required.

The assessment is performed at the point of contact with the patients.

The health risk assessment activity aimed at identifying the potential healthcare complications that may

arise from the use of the needle exchange among the population group.

The data collected from the health care disparities assessment is useful in the planning for intervention program.

Programs are designed to align with the healthcare needs of the population.

The data facilitate the identification of the amount of required resources and the type of the services that should

be rendered to the adult population who are homeless and under the needle exchange program (National Committee for
Quality Assurance, 2014).

Development of Written Strategies

.

The NCQA requires for the development of strategies that are meant to improve healthcare standards

for the minority groups.

The plan encourages all health care providers to present a written program and healthcare

plans that specifically focus on the homeless adults who are on the needle exchange program.

The written strategies should specifically address the risk factors for healthcare problem affecting

the population’s groups, guidelines on the procedure for monitoring the healthcare needs of the homeless

adults on the needle exchange program and reporting and updating process (Drummond et al., 2015).

Community Partnerships

.

Community partnership plan aims to increase the level of participation of the members

of the homeless adults under the needle exchange program.

The members of the group will be involved in the stages of planning, implementation and evaluation

of interventional programs.

Members of the community are required to play a role in reporting the healthcare needs

of the population group.

Studies have identified an increase in the effectiveness of interventional programs that involve

the contribution of the affected individuals in health care strategies and plans (Clarke e al., 2016).
