Details

Date:
September 20
Time:
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
Event Category:

One of the priorities for health systems across Canada has been improving access and providing quality care for marginalized patient populations and clients most impacted by the social determinants of health. However, caring for this population can be challenging as they often do not have a stable medical home, and coordinating care across multiple organizations and sharing data freely presents logistical, technical, and privacy legislation hurdles.

In this webinar, Inner City Health Associates (ICHA) discusses their transformative approach to population health through street outreach initiatives, transitional primary care, and collaboration with hospitals and community health organizations. Discover how ICHA’s team of highly mobile healthcare professionals leverages technology to enable collaborative care amongst their team of providers for the marginalized patient populations they serve. Key learnings will be shared from the development of their programs, including how to enable communication amongst providers, information sharing between organizations and approaches to coordination of care across the continuum.
