Community-Centered Approaches to Healthcare: Introduction to the CCHH Model
March 30, 2023 | 12 p.m. Central
Health Care for the Homeless providers serve a population with complex health and social needs. One of the main challenges to improving health for people experiencing homelessness is the ability to address the social determinants of health including access to housing, food, transportation, employment, and other resources.
Building innovative, cross-sector community partnerships is one way to accomplish this goal. Developed by the Prevention Institute, the Community Centered Health Home (CCHH) model builds on the concept of PCMH while integrating a whole person, SDOH framework grounded in equity and justice. A CCHH not only acknowledges that factors outside the healthcare system affect patient health outcomes, but actively participates in improving them.
This is a two-part webinar series in partnership with the Prevention Institute, with part one exploring the CCHH model and part two diving into operationalizing a community-centered approach. This was our first session in the series.
