WORKSHOP: Applying Transportation Solutions to Address Missed Appointments & Improve Access to Care: Findings from the Rides to Wellness Community Scan Project

East Coast Migrant Stream Forum
Thursday, October 12, 2017
1:00PM – 4:00PM EDT

Transportation is essential for access to and utilization of care; yet, transportation barriers persist for many communities, including agricultural workers. For health centers, missed medical appointments cause a disruption of care, impact clinical outcomes, and result in a loss of revenue. In this workshop, HOP will provide an overview of the findings from the National Missed Appointments and Transportation Barriers Survey, including the scope of the problem and the costs associated with missed medical appointments. In addition, HOP will provide concrete examples from community-based organizations that demonstrate the financial benefits of investing in transportation initiatives. In a small group activity, participants will use a quality improvement tool to measure the costs of missed appointments and find patient-centered solutions to transportation barriers.

WORKSHOP: Enhancing the Delivery of Care: The Promotor(a) de Salud/CHW Role on Clinical Care Teams

East Coast Migrant Stream Forum
Saturday, October 14, 2017
10:45AM – 12:15PM EDT

By 2030, the number of Americans living with one or more chronic conditions is expected to rise to 163 million people. Navigating the health care system can be challenging for individuals with chronic conditions, particularly those who also face cultural and linguistic barriers, such as agricultural workers. Community-based outreach efforts through Promotores(as) de Salud/Community Health Workers (CHWs) have achieved documented success in improving health outcomes for agricultural workers. During this workshop, Health Outreach Partners and MHP Salud will present the benefits of including CHWs as members of the clinical care team and provide strategies and tools that Health Centers can use to accomplish this. Case studies and group discussion will be used to illustrate how CHWs can successfully be integrated into clinical care teams.
