Turning the Tables: From Chasing Grants to Having Your Pick


Webinar Details

Hear how a small grant-based non-profit became a financially sustainable, mission-driven health value incubator. The St. Louis Integrated Health Network used to be funded through braided grants, which meant spending a great deal of time on paperwork and competing for money, and less on improving client outcomes. Today, hospitals are contacting them to seek their services, and the organization is sustained primarily through contracted services.

The Community Referral Coordinator program provides care coordination to patients who need support and follow-up once they return home after a hospital stay. In this webinar, you will learn how the St. Louis Health Network has used data to improve the services they provide to their clients, and to showcase their value to stakeholders in the community. They have had remarkable results and are now being sought after by health care providers who are held accountable for health outcomes and need to ensure patients have the continuity of care needed to avoid unnecessary re-hospitalization. The Community Referral Coordinator program is recognized as an emerging best practice by the Commonwealth Fund and Health People 2020.

Wil Franklin, Jess Holmes, and Amanda Stoermer will discuss the need for care coordination services, the solutions they are bringing to their community, the tools they are using to ensure success, and how they have used data to become more financially sustainable. Register now!
