The National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership (MLP) hosted a 5-part Webinar Series to disseminate the Health Center MLP toolkit providing information and resources on how to start, strengthen, and sustain an MLP. Health care data and social services data usually exist in separate silos, leaving individuals to coordinate their own care and services. Connecting health and social services data can help address social determinants of health by identifying individual and population needs and ensuring services are effective. Efforts are underway across the country to break down the barriers that keep information siloed. In Part IV of the series, panelists will discussed how to overcome barriers to integration by sharing successful models of information sharing between health care and social services.
