SESSION - Using Team-based Care in Community Health Centers. 
Research has established a correlation between social determinants and health outcomes and expenditures. This session will discuss team-based strategies to assess and address social determinants of health by connecting patients to community resources that can help overcome barriers to care. We will also explore approaches to reimbursement and sustainability of these strategies.

SERIES - Developing Team-Based Care Teams Using the Collaborative Care Model
Team-based care is an essential part of the Patient Centered Medical Home model.  It allows for staff to collaboratively work at top of license to proactively and holistically provide patient care.  Additionally, it can build and reinforce robust skills for staff and improve job satisfaction.  This training will address particular components of team based care—collaborative care and social determinants of health.  The collaborative care model is an evidence-based integration of behavioral health into primary care and allows patients to received behavioral healthcare within the primary care setting.  It involves a primary care provider, behavioral health provider, and a psychiatric provider.  Social determinants profoundly affect health, and care team members can efficiently address this issues.

TPCA will be holding a two-part training on developing integrated care teams in your community health center. Please join us as Dr. Elizabeth Wolff and Deb Peartree, both of Health Management Associates, lead us in a discussion of how to implement and enhance care teams in your organization.
