Community Care Coordination: How to effectively identify, engage and sustain community partners

National Rural Health Resource Center

To effectively achieve better health outcomes for those you are coordinating care for, you must reach beyond the walls of your organization. Only 20% of a person's health comes from clinical care, and the rest comes from circumstances in the environment where people are born, live, learn, work, play, and age which affects a wide range of health, risks, and quality-of-life outcomes. 

This webinar will introduce tools for identifying partners and creating allies within your community by recognizing all of the social drivers of health (SDOH) being experienced. This webinar will ground you in Community Care Coordination and its role in population health, provide best practices, and teach you how to engage and sustain these partnerships. Applying these principles will strengthen the capacity of your health care delivery system to create buy-in, establish accountability and better manage the health of your population. 

Speaker: Debra Laine, M.Ed

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to: 

  • Define community care coordination 
  • Identify primary SDOH for individuals you care for 
  • Identify, engage, and sustain community partners to address SDOH
