The C3T Hawaii Community College Consortium is developing workforce programs to meet key economic initiatives in the Health Care sector identified in the "New Day In Hawaii" plan. These initiatives include:
Expanding Community Health Centers
Expanding the Use of Information Technology in Healthcare
Rebuilding the Public Health Infrastructure with a Focus on Children
Supporting Patient-Centered Models of Care That Focus on Prevention and Address Social Determinants of Health
Develop and Implement a Comprehensive Strategy to Address Hawaii's Aging Population
In March 2012, the Research and Economic Analysis Division of the Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism published a report titled: Population and Economic Projections for the State of Hawaii to 2040. The report stated "the aging population is one of the most prominent features of Hawaii's population trend. The share of the population 65 years of age and over increased from 8.0 percent in 1980 to 14.5 percent in 2010. This trend will continue in the future, increasing this share of the total population to 23.6 percent in 2040."
