Project H.E.A.L.T.H: A Shift to Community-Based Outreach

May 23, 2017, 12-1 pm CST

Project Healing Effectively after Leaving the Hospital (HEALTH) explores a transitional care program aimed at improving patient health outcomes and reducing avoidable readmissions among patients discharged from the hospital.  The evidence-based program engages community health workers (CHWs) to deliver preventive health to program participants and reduce health disparities.  CHW’s visit patients at home visits and address social determinants of health to reduce barriers to self-care. The program is one of the most innovative and collaborative programs in the community.
