goHunterdon has been awarded a grant from Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey. The grant, made through The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey, will fund Lyft rides for transportation-dependent patients of the Hunterdon Wound Healing Center. The goal of the project is to improve health outcomes, reduce emergency room visits, and hospital readmission rates by removing the transportation constraints that limit follow-up care. The project will also include tracking of several data points to evaluate impact.
goHunterdon will work in collaboration with Hunterdon Healthcare, the Hunterdon Wound Healing Center, and The Horizon Foundation to implement the project over the next 12 months.
The mission of The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey is to support organizations that make New Jersey healthier. Since its formation in 2004, The Foundation has awarded more than 1,500 grants and more than $56.9 million in support of non-profit organizations that have improved public health and the quality of life in New Jersey.
