Enhancing Patient Navigation Through a Community Health Program

Date: Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Time: 2:00 PM ET

The University of Texas Medical Branch’s Expand Patient Navigation Program: Community Health Program/Chronic Disease Education project is made possible by the Texas 1115 Medicaid Waiver Program. The project provides care management and disease management services to vulnerable and other high‐risk patients in need of assistance. Many of the program’s low-income and uninsured patients are not served by other programs. Patient outcomes demonstrate that this model reduces readmission rates and improves health outcomes and, ultimately, patients’ lives.

Through this webinar, participants learned how to replicate this project in other communities that have identified the need to help patients with chronic and comorbidities navigate the care process. Participants gained insight into best practices in patient navigation and care coordination through discussion of work that has proved successful in helping various populations, including the vulnerable.
