Presenters:
Katie Fritz Fogel, Research Associate, Rainbow Research, Minneapolis.Lydia Karch, Healthy Communities Program Manager, HCMC/MVNA.

Description:
Community Health Workers (CHWs) and Community Paramedics (CPs) play key roles linking formal mechanisms of health care delivery to clients/patients at the neighborhood level and supporting patients to address their holistic health needs. Minnesota has led the nation in recognizing the role these emerging professions can play in population health improvement efforts, lowering health care costs, and reducing health disparities, yet there have been few forums for stakeholders, clients, and practitioners of these two fields to join together to discuss emerging opportunities and challenges of fully integrating these fields into Minnesota’s health care system and accountable care organizations (ACO’s). Rainbow Research, in partnership with The Paramedic Foundation, Minnesota Community Health Worker Alliance, MVNA, and North Memorial, organized and facilitated a series of seven engaging events bringing together over 140 unique individuals from over 60 organizations to explore challenges, best practices, and opportunities for moving forward together around key issues including: Role Delineation, Payment Models, Multi-Disciplinary Teams, and Supervision and Management. These events were designed to highlight local models and leaders, build cross-sector relationships, and identify individual and collective action steps to move the fields forward. In this webinar we will share our process for convening a learning community of CHW and CP stakeholders, outcomes including action steps identified and taken, and outstanding challenges. Additionally, we will share a Case Study from HCMC/MVNA illustrating some of the learnings identified.

Presenters:
Tani Hemmila and Sarah Horst Evans, Project Managers/Consultants for The Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI).

Description:
The Institute of Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI) will present the results of the Quality Improvement (QI) Learning Community, funded through the State Innovation Model, Minnesota Accountable Health Model. ICSI is working with five organizations in rural Minnesota to provide training in basic quality improvement, team and communication skills, in addition to networking to learn from one another as they apply these skills. Too often, the importance of including the team and engaging those affected by the change is dismissed or minimized. In the QI Learning Community, ICSI's goal was to revitalize change efforts in each of the organizations by re-focusing on team and collaborative communications skills while applying quality improvement basics. ICSI will provide an overview of the learning community activities and organizations’ progress, and share a taste of the training provided to these organizations.
