  • Our response to COVID-19

    Dear friends,

     

    The novel Coronavirus COVID-19 has spread very rapidly worldwide and is the cause of a large number of deaths. As evident in this global pandemic, we are as strong as our weakest links. As Amah Health continues to work on solutions to address uncontrolled chronic conditions that disproportionally impact the diverse minority communities, here is a comprehensive guide from the CDC on ways to protect yourself and your loved ones. Multiple languages are available in Spanish, Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese.

     

    Older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions including uncontrolled diabetes or serious heart conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Again, steps you can take are:

    • Stay home.
    • Wash your hands often.
    • Avoid close contact (6 feet, which is about two arm lengths) with people who are sick.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched services.
    • Avoid all cruise travel and non-essential air travel.
    • Call your healthcare professional if you have concerns about COVID-19 and your underlying condition or if you are sick.

    It is a difficult time for everyone. If you need help or know someone who does, there are helps available:

    • Disaster Distress Helpline, call 1-800-985-5990
    • National Domestic Violence Hotline, call 1-800-799-7233 and TTY 1-800-787-3224

     

    Stay safe. Stay healthy.

    We will get through this.

     

    Team Amah Health

  • Diagnostic Tools for Diverse Populations

    All cultures have a system of health beliefs that explains why the disease, how it should be treated, and who should be involved. While no cultural groups are homogeneous, they may hold beliefs and practices in common.

     

    Amah offers culturally and linguistically appropriate psychometric diagnostic tools to improve medication adherence among minority populations with chronic conditions.

     

    Drop us a line to start the conversation today.

  • Benefits

    We base our solutions on decades of research in behavioral science and evidence-based interventions.

    Our team speaks the language of research, healthcare, technology, and the communities we represent.

    Gain Actionable Insights

    We develop culturally appropriate diagnostic assessment tools to enable health organizations to categorize and track multicultural, including Less English Proficient (LEP), populations’ beliefs and barriers about health behaviors.

    Improve Quality of Life

    We address patients' interpretation of body, self, and identity to help coaches and care managers become trusted partners of patients and family.

    Improve Medication Adherence

    Our tools feature built-in cultural and linguistic insights that help decrease health disparities among ethnic minorities with chronic conditions.

    Prevent Avoidable ER Trips and Admissions

    Our tools improve cross-cultural patient-provider communication which leads to improved satisfaction, adherence, and consequently fewer ER trips and avoidable admissions.
