This presentation uses case studies from a variety of target populations to highlight challenges and successes when serving clients in an integrated healthcare environment. This workshop will include an enhanced care coordination panel representing various Integrated Delivery Network (IDN) Regions.
Region 1 will explain how their copilot team serves a specific Medicaid population with a combination of complex medical needs, complex basic needs (housing, food, transportation), and mental health support needs.
Region 2 will share their Family Choices program which uses the NH Wraparound intervention model and is available to pregnant and parenting families with children through age 6.
Region 3 will present their Integrated Dual Diagnosis Treatment project to treat those with co-occurring SUD and mental health diagnoses.
Region 7 will describe a Community Health Workers’ role as the bridge between the patient in the community and the providers and services they need to access.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to describe different approaches to care coordination and identify barriers and mitigations that occur while providing care coordination for various target populations as well as describe at least 2 approaches to sustainability of care coordination models.
