Health Leads is pleased to announce the 2018 CASHI participants!

Healthcare systems are increasingly adopting social needs programs, but many still struggle to systematically sustain and spread approaches to addressing patients’ essential health needs.

In this interactive, 18-month learning program care teams will learn effective strategies for improving patients’ social support and strengthen and expand their existing social health interventions. The program starts with a virtual Orientation Webinar on April 18, 2018 from 3:30-4:30 pm EST and continues with a series of face-to-face meetings, virtual learning sessions, action calls and site visits.

Facilitated by Health Leads, CASHI will bring together up to 20 hospitals and health centers across the nation. Participating organizations will:

  • Learn from faculty on the leading edge of social health integration
  • Drive improvement through coaching, custom resources and peer support
  • Plan and execute spread of successful strategies
  • Develop strong aims and measurement strategies for social needs programs
  • Create a business case to encourage investment and sustainability

CASHI is designed for executive leadership and primary care teams at hospitals and health centers providing care to underserved communities. Partners should demonstrate a history of addressing patients’ essential resource needs and strong commitment from leadership to spread effective strategies to new sites and make a business case to support this expansion. Selected teams will receive a $10,000 stipend to enable full participation and help mitigate anticipated costs.
