Advocacy

Philadelphia Coordinated Health Care (PCHC) advocates for individuals with an Intellectual Disability (ID) in a variety of ways to help increase access to quality health care services and supports in the community.Advocacy

PCHC collaborates on local county, state, regional and national projects that enhance health care services and resources for people with ID and those who may have co-occurring mental health challenges. In the past, PCHC has partnered with the regional American Alzheimer’s Association, American Cancer Society and with a local Diabetes Education Center and Hospice Care Organizations.

PCHC creates many publications to help promote advocacy and address the health care needs of people with ID:

  • The PCHC Health Care Alert and Active News are quarterly Newsletters designed to share information about pertinent health care topics, nursing information, risk management issues and community resources.
  • PCHC’s Outreach Flyers are created to share time sensitive information related to health insurance coordination and pertinent public health topics.

PCHC will share vital health care information relevant to the ID Community in the Communication Alerts section in the areas of: Behavioral Health, Physical Health and Public Health.
