The Foundation was established in 1986 by the Hawaii Medical Service Association to stimulate research of issues that confront Hawaii’s health care industry. It is dedicated to improving health in Hawaii through grantmaking, strategic initiatives, publications, and communitywide programs. Grants are awarded for: general social welfare (domestic violence/child abuse, emergency assistance, healthy communities, information and referral, and community events); access to health care (service planning and care coordination, outreach initiatives, programs for the uninsured); health promotion and disease prevention (wellness education programs, clinical preventative services, and quality of prevention programs) and health care quality/delivery systems (health care delivery and measurement and quality improvement). Priority is given to research projects, demonstration projects, organizational or community capacity building efforts, and start-up programs. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
