UCLA/Johnson & Johnson Health Care Institute (HCI)
Our Mission: Strengthen managerial capacity of agencies, so they can provide more effective health education and prevention programs to the children and families they serve.

Our Strategy: Train the Trainers in agencies to: 1) Develop strategic management tools to assure successful implementation of health education programs; and 2) Provide culturally sensitive, low literacy materials that engage and empower agency staff & families to participate actively in health decisions.

The UCLA/ Johnson & Johnson Health Care Institute (HCI) is a comprehensive approach to health empowerment for Head Start parents, children and staff with an array of programs targeting key health issues. The HCI's methodologies of training have been proven to make valuable long-term differences in the lives of Head Start families.

Since HCI's inception in 2001, it has reached over 65,000 parents in 45 states, 7 different languages and 10 ethnicities nationwide on how to treat everyday childhood illnesses at home, easing the burden on local emergency room and clinics. HCI has shown a significant decrease in school days and work days missed, 29% and 42 % respectively. After families were trained, there was a 42% decrease in doctor/clinic visits and a 58% decrease in emergency room visits. At an average cost of just $80 per family trained, the training has achieved remarkable results. The UCLA/HCI studies show that training 10,000 families using the Health Care Institute's methodology can lead to a total cost savings of nearly $5.1 million to Medicaid in direct costs associated with unnecessary ER and clinic visits annually.
