Hosted by Health Management Associates
People who have chronic health conditions or mental health and substance use disorders, and are in the criminal justice system, are among the highest cost utilizers of the healthcare system. A multi-pronged Community Collaborative approach 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. 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, and the criminal justice system. Presenters will discuss a successful Community Collaborative in Bexar County, Texas, and similar initiatives in New York.
