The Greater Norwalk Community Care Team is a successful model of collaborative care among key stakeholders including Norwalk Hospital, Norwalk Community Health Center and the Open Door Shelter to address the medical, mental health and social needs of our most vulnerable residents. In operation for three years, the team has successfully linked over 200 residents to appropriate care and social services. As a result, healthcare stability has improved and emergency and acute medical care utilization has decreased. The Community Care Team is a successful--if not critical--population health strategy aligned with the goals of the Triple Aim.
