The heart of the EBCI Tribal Option approach to healthcare comes from the philosophy of “du yu ga dv” or the “Right Way” – a program designed to maximize the effectiveness of the staff within the community by building and maintaining healthy relationships. By understanding that each member has their own story that guides their lifestyle choices and healthcare decisions, the “Right Way” emphasizes the importance of developing strong, trusting relationships between the Member and the care team.
