Telehealth Strategies and Resources for Serving Patients with Limited English Proficiency

Published June 2020

HITEQ Center 0 358

For many, telehealth has removed barriers and ensured that people receive care when and where it is most convenient. However, while telehealth can remove obstacles, if not used deliberately and thoughtfully, it can exacerbate many inequalities that exist in the United States. One factor that is essential to account for is language accessibility, which, if not provided, limits the number of patients who are able to utilize telehealth services. 

Better Together: Health and HMIS Data, Best Practices and Examples from the Field

Alyssa Carlisle 0 447

In collaboration with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the National Human Services Data Consortium (NHSDC), CSH and the National Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) Council will be presenting a webinar on data sharing and integration between healthcare and homeless services.

This Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)-supported project will educate attendees on work happening in their communities to bridge homeless services and health system data collection and sharing. Presenters will highlight key areas including working through privacy rules and overcoming barriers to sharing, systems integration, funding, and incorporating Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) data collection.

Addressing Childhood Obesity in Health Centers

Promising Practices and Lessons Learned: January 2019

HITEQ Center 0 10307

The HITEQ Center interviewed ten health centers and health center partners to identify solutions and promising practices for addressing childhood obesity across the health center program. The focus included how health centers are meeting the Uniform Data System (UDS) measure and how they are taking further steps to identify and intervene with those at risk of obesity leveraging health information technology, electronic health records, and the data they have. Seven key areas are identified in the resulting issue brief.

Using Social Determinants of Health Data & New Technology Tools to Connect with Appropriate Community Resources

We asked the questions, now what? Updated in December 2018

HITEQ Center 0 11713

The collection of data related to patients' non-medical needs through use of Social Determinant of Health (SDoH) assessment tools, can accelerate systemic population health improvement, as well as engage patients in addressing their social non-medical needs (such as transportation, shelter, or intimate partner violence services) through coordinated access to appropriate services. This case study discusses the process a health center may use to identify and stratify need, and profiles a number of new technologies, including Aunt Bertha, Now Pow, and 211 Community Information Exchange, for connecting patients to appropriate community resources.

 

Developing a Data Dashboard for PRAPARE Data

HITEQ Highlights

Alyssa Carlisle 0 11853

Health centers are interested in using social determinants data to manage and improve the health of their patient population and community, and are at different places on the population health management (PHM) and social determinants of health (SDH) adoption curve. The Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patients’ Assets, Risks, and Experiences (PRAPARE) is a national effort to help health centers and other providers collect the data needed to better understand and act on their patients’ social determinants of health. In this webinar, the Colorado Community Managed Care Network (CCMCN), a Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) highlighted a Tableau data dashboard that they have developed to help their health centers make decisions on population health management. They discussed the rationale for developing the tool, challenges and facilitators to integration, and how their health centers benefit from data sharing across Tableau.

Coding Social Determinants of Health (SDH) for Optimizing Value

An Infographic for Providers on the Benefits of Coding for SDH

HITEQ Center 0 14332

The purpose of the infographic is to describe how SDH data would be used for a variety of goals that would have traction with the clinic staff audience who may likely need to modify workflows and behavior in order to collect such data.  The visual case could be used in presentations or hung on a provider break room wall.

5/9 HITEQ Highlights: Using Data for Population Health - Social Determinants and Population Health

A HITEQ Highlights Webinar

Alyssa Thomas 0 9107

The objective of this learning opportunity is to help health centers begin, and make progress along, the path of using social determinants data to address population health using HIT.  This webinar will provide participants with an understanding of population health management and the social determinants of health from a HIT perspective, and their relevance for health centers.  We will present real-world examples of health centers’ successful use of social determinants data to implement population health management and improve quality.  Participants will be introduced to a “Roadmap for Use of Social Determinants Data”, to guide them in the foundational steps of using social determinants data for HIT to drive population health. 

Ask & Code: Documenting Homelessness Throughout the Health Care System

A National Health Care for the Homeless Council Webinar

Alyssa Thomas 0 10025

This webinar complements our recent policy brief and will discuss how the ICD-10-CM code for homelessness (Z59.0) has been implemented at a Health Care for the Homeless grantee in Colorado, and how a hospital system has instituted a housing status screening tool in Pennsylvania. Finally, we’ll hear from a leading managed care entity about why Medicaid plans need to have this information and see preliminary results from a pilot project in Texas using the Z59.0 code to identify homelessness among Medicaid beneficiaries.
