MAHEC's Project® ECHO: Act NOW - Preparing to Manage Non-Medical Drivers of Health

Description

In the United States, COVID-19 is exposing inequities in the health system. Navigating non-medical services like health, housing, employment, and transportation can be incredibly difficult, but these factors all contribute to our overall health. NCCARE360 provides the opportunity for health to all North Carolinians by providing public access to resources and helping health and community-based organizations make electronic referrals, communicate in real time, securely share client information, and track outcomes together.

Medicaid Managed Care in NC will begin in the summer of 2021 and will include both medical and non-medical drivers of health. Care managers, healthcare clinic staff, community health workers, and community-based organizations need to know what is expected of them and how best to meet the needs of community members. The goal of this ECHO is to introduce the non-medical drivers of health and prepare participants for addressing their patients’ social determinants of health.

Project ECHO® is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes education to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. ECHO is led by an expert team that uses multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual learning sessions comprised of a short didactic followed by discussion among clinical experts and participants.
