Building a Community Collaborative: Evidence-Based Interventions that Bring Together Healthcare Providers, Community-Based Organizations, and the Criminal Justice System
Wednesday, April 12, 2017, 1 to 2 p.m. EST — Individuals with complex challenges arising from chronic health conditions, mental health and/or substance-abuse disorders, or involvement in the criminal justice system are among the highest-cost utilizers of the healthcare system. A multi-pronged Community Collaborative can ensure evidence-based interventions that identify and effectively treat high utilizers – helping to keep them out of the emergency room and out of jail.
During this webinar, HMA Principal Bren Manaugh and Senior Consultant Amanda Ternan will provide a case study of a successful Community Collaborative in Bexar County, Texas. The webinar will offer practical considerations for building and operating a Community Collaborative, ensuring best practices, and creating a shared recognition of the need for trust and coordination among healthcare providers, community-based organizations (CBOs), and the criminal justice system.
