June 2013 – Infographic Design for Health Care Home Study

These are the preliminary infographic designs that visually describe our health care home study results. This is for our client, Urban Health Partners through the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center. Infographics are a great way to take data and detailed information and share it in a visual and informative way. We hope to share the final version with you in next month.

Here are some links to other great infographics:

April 2013 – Presenter at New Mexico Public Health Association Conference

Sara from Soda Creek had the pleasure to present with Leah Steimel from the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center Urban Health Partners (UHP) at the 2013 New Mexico Public Health Association Conference: Disparity 2 Equity Strategies and Solutions. Our presentation was called: “Health Care Home: Experiences of Vulnerable Adult in Bernalillo County and Implications Moving Forward.” Sara has worked with Leah and UHP for many years, most recently on a research study where we’re evaluating the health care home pathway for the Pathways to a Healthy Bernalillo County program.

Our Role

  • Develop research tools
  • Recruit
  • Conduct focus groups in English and Spanish
  • Assist in evaluating the results and developing a final report

  • Develop and run local webinar to share health care home study results

Soda Creek has had the pleasure of working with this team for many years in many capacities of health communication. This current project will help inform and improve UHP’s Bernalillo County Pathways to a Healthy Community program.

When we develop discussion questions for focus groups ...
We think conversation + study participants. What would the study participants say if we had a relaxed conversation with them? How would they talk? What would they find engaging? What would make them want to share? Then we write the research questions using this conversational language (while remaining scientifically sound, of course). This is a great way to engage participants because it feels natural to them and thus helps them to open up. We also ensure that the explanation and questions show the participants how much their opinion is valued.
Information: From complex to easy-to-understand
We recently finished conducting a University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center study with Urban Health Partners to better understand the patient-centered medical home or health care home model. We have plenty of timely and important data to share from this study. This can be done in many ways depending on what audience we are reaching. One way to share complex data, technical information, and/or academic research is through infographics. Soda Creek recently designed an infographic for UHP that visually shares the research project’s methodology and findings. This is one example of the plain language work that Soda Creek specializes in.
