2018 Hawaii CHNA Report

To truly address the root causes of health in Hawaiʻi, we need to understand that we are a unique people with a unique history living in a unique place.

When Hawaiʻi people are asked to describe a healthy life, few think that the absence of illness and the extension of life years are the only aspects of health.

Diet, exercise, and doctors are essential—though insufficient —to improve health, but they alone are far from providing happiness, and other aspects of health that people deserve.

Healthcare Workforce Initiative Report

The Healthcare Association of Hawaii released its first ever workforce report showing more than 2,200 healthcare jobs open across the state, with an average vacancy rate of 10%, and most jobs taking 6 to 12 months to fill.

The report also found that of 76 non-physician, patient-facing professions, 19 of them have no Hawaii-based education or training programs, and four of them are fields in high demand, such as physical therapy and RN case management.

The report also details early outcomes of strengthened efforts by the state’s healthcare and education sectors to more closely align training programs with industry workforce needs.
