Healthcare Deep Dive
Take a deep dive into one of the best sites for learning about population health management in integrated health care. The site is the AIMS Center associated with the University of Washington Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Division of Integrated Care and Public Health and the IMPACT program:
Population health management is a critical component of integrated care. In the AIMS model it is referred to as the “Collaborative Care” model.
Click the “Collaborative Care” tab and read about the “Core Principles”, “Team Structure”, “Care Manager”, “Dollars and Sense”, “Resource Library” (amazing!).
Click the “Implementation Guide” and review steps 1 through 5.
It is difficult to find, but here is a link from AIMS to the related IMPACT site free training modules on collaborative care for depression. I highly recommend all students to complete these free training sessions:
Why is this scavenger hunt important?
In this course you will be required to complete a proposal for an integrated health care program in a primary care clinic settings. The proposal will require that you address clinical, operational and financial strategies. In addition, it will require that you incorporate a population health management component. The AIM collaborative care resources will prove extremely valuable as this program is population based, and the resources cover clinical, operational and financial topics.
