Innovation Communities 2017

WELCOME

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Innovation Communities are designed to engage organizations in the acquisition of knowledge and skills to implement measureable improvements in a high priority area related to healthcare integration. Lessons learned over the course of the Innovation Community are compiled and shared with the health care field.

Innovation Communities aim to address three key components associated with innovation implementation:
     • Topic-specific foundational information, knowledge, and best practices
     • Innovation implementation planning
     • Adoption and sustainability of the innovation

The 2017 Innovation Communities will run from February through August.  Innovation Communities are available at no cost to participating organizations. Participating organizations will identify and implement a core implementation team (CIT) of at least 4-5 members. While certain Innovation Community topic areas may require different CIT members, typically the team will consist of an administration/leadership staff, a clinical supervisor, primary and/or secondary consumers, behavioral health clinician, and a data collection/analyst. It is understood that the CIT will be supported by leadership to commit the adequate time and resources to take part in the following IC activities:
    • Attend monthly webinars
    • Attend individual and small group coaching calls
    • Complete assignments
    • Develop and execute the work plans


2017 Innovation community topics


Are we Ready to Prevent Metabolic Syndrome?

The treatment of psychotic disorders consists primarily of “atypical” second generation antipsychotics, which are associated with metabolic side effects such as obesity, diabetes, and dyslipidemia. Behavioral health provider organizations with well integrated primary care services are best positioned to help people who have or are most at risk for metabolic syndrome. The purpose of this Innovation Community is to support organizations in the development of efficient and effective care pathways for the identification and treatment of metabolic syndrome.

Circle of Support - Engaging Loved Ones in Health and Wellness

The emotional, social, and practical supports provided by one or more members of our social network are often an important resource that promotes our health and wellbeing. An individual’s social network is one of the most significant factors in building personal resilience, managing stress and chronic health conditions, and promoting health and wellness. IC participants will learn and implement an approach that explores the potential contribution of personal supports as a routine part of a comprehensive integrated service plan. Specifically, CIHS will provide participating IC participants with training, information, tools, resources, and guidance to implement an approach based on the Consumer Centered Family Consultation (CCFC) Model developed by the University of Rochester Medical Center and the New York State Office of Mental Health.

Behavioral Health Integration for Chronic Disease Management of Depression and Diabetes

This Innovation Community will focus on Population Health Management Focus on Diabetes and Depression Screening. Given the high rates of co-morbidity of depression and diabetes there is an opportunity for safety-net providers with Behavioral Health Clinicians to positively impact patient engagement through the development of a robust care pathway that includes education and support about the interaction of these conditions and what they can do to manage these conditions.

IMPLEMENTING MAT SERVICES FOR TOBACCO CESSATION IN INTEGRATED CARE SETTINGS

Tobacco use is still a major public health problem in the US. It is also a major cause of premature death for person’s with serious mental illness and substance use disorders. While behavioral health programs that are integrating primary care can provide comprehensive services to clients with mental health and substance use disorders, they struggle with the implementation of tobacco cessation services, especially medication assisted treatment (MAT) services for tobacco use. This Innovation Community will focus on helping behavioral health providers who are integrating primary care services establish effective tobacco cessation services, including the use of MAT for tobacco cessation.
