Patient Navigators in the Care Team: Bringing Innovative Tasks to Improve Health and Housing outcomes

Thursday, June 22, 2017: 1:00 PM-2:30 PM
Latrobe (Grand Hyatt Washington)
Patient navigation has emerged as a promising model to improve access and engagement in care for vulnerable populations experiencing chronic conditions. In this workshop, presenters will describe the role of patient navigators/care coordinators in working as part of care team to improve access to housing, employment, basic living skills,  medical care and behavioral health services.  Presenters will use case studies to illustrate their work. Data will be shared on the impact of these interventions including cost, the level of effort and types of activities by navigators that are more likely to achieve health and housing outcomes.
