Resource Summary: Access to healthcare and other critical services in rural communities is impacted by various factors from travel distances between locations to limited financial resources and provider capacity. Community health centers, supportive housing and social service providers and other health system providers have a great deal to benefit from partnerships that address Social Determinants of Health and enable them to share information, coordinate successful strategies and leverage resources.
Resource Details: This webinar features health and housing providers in rural communities of Wisconsin, West Virginia and Vermont who are focusing on: 1) understanding the characteristics and needs of frequent user population in rural communities, 2) (re)introducing the key ‘operators’ and their roles in rural communities serving high utilizers, 3) highlighting strategies that are working to leverage both housing and health care resources. The panelists will emphasize how they went about building their partnerships, the structure that addresses the needs in their communities, and the ongoing benefits.
