In developing the Blueprint for Complex Care, we heard the need for more local connectivity to create coordinated systems of care for individuals with complex health and social needs.
To address this concern, the National Center will hold three convenings of regional complex care stakeholders across the country to address complex care barriers in their own communities. This project aims to facilitate information sharing and collaboration on a regional level and to foster ecosystems of complex care, as outlined in the Blueprint for Complex Care.
Announcing the 2019 regional convenings
Host: Atlanta Regional Collaborative for Health Improvement (ARCHI)
Issue: Disconnect between patients and social services
Convening: ARCHI and the National Center will convene local partners to further develop support for a real-time, rapid referral network with the larger Atlanta community.
Host: California Association for Public Hospitals/Safety Net Institute (CAPH/SNI)
Issue: Hiring and supporting peer health workers
Convening: CAPH/SNI and the National Center will bring together 25 regional coalitions to learn from one other and problem-solve together on the topic of peer support with the input of peer health workers from across the state.
Host: Jefferson Healthcare
Issue: Social isolation in older adults living in rural communities
Convening: Jefferson Healthcare and the National Center will address professional isolation among rural providers by providing an opportunity for providers to exchange knowledge on principles of complex care as adapted for rural communities.
Lessons learned and resources developed through the 2019 regional convenings will be shared widely with the field. For more information on regional convenings for complex care, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
