As part of our fee for service portfolio, HIPHI provides relevant trainings for Hawaii’s public health workforce throughout the year. Recently, through a partnership between HIPHI and the Department of Health Family Health Services Division, HIPHI helped organize and support a 2-day training for the Hawai‘i Rural Health Clinic Network at the Grand Naniloa Hotel in Hilo, Hawai‘i.  The event was well received and attended by 33 rural health clinic administrators, medical professionals and staff as well as health insurance providers from across the state. The training provided an overview of rural health clinic programs provided by Wipfli CPAs and Consultant services. Other robust clinic-related topics that were covered include billing for Medicare and Medicaid, Medicare rate setting, rural health clinic billing and reimbursements, operational and financial strategies, annual report requirements, adverse childhood experiences, resiliency and trauma training (ACES) and an opportunity to network and discuss local challenges and issues.  The network hopes to provide additional trainings in the future.

HIPHI also coordinates the Hawai‘i Public Health Training Hui which is committed to providing continuing education to healthcare professionals, community members and the public health workforce to promote population health, social welfare and well-being in Hawai‘i.  Through these webinar based trainings, the Hui offers continuing education credits in five areas: 1) Certified Substance Abuse Counselors (CSACs), 2) Licensed Social Workers (LSWs), Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs), 3) Certified Health Educational Specialists (CHES), and 4) Registered Dietitian (RD), Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN) and Dietetic Technicians Registered (DTR), and 5) Certified Nursing Education (CNE) and Registered Nurses.
