Sustaining Integrated Care: Making the Business Case for Routine HIV Screening and Care
This web-based training was hosted by the Partnerships for Care HIV TAC
Malinda Boehler, MSW, LCSW, Director, Midwest AIDS Training + Education Center, Eskenazi Health, Indianapolis, Indiana
Description: Health care systems are struggling with rising costs and uneven quality. Health care leaders and policy makers have tried countless incremental fixes—attacking fraud, reducing errors, enforcing practice guidelines, making patients better “consumers,” implementing electronic medical records—but none have had much impact. Many organizations are not true delivery systems, but loose partnerships of largely stand-alone units that often duplicate services. There are huge opportunities for improving value as providers integrate systems to eliminate the fragmentation and duplication of care and to optimize the types of care delivered to patients.
This webinar will focus on the experience of Eskenazi Health, a large health care system in Indiana, in implementing routine HIV screening and expanding HIV care, and strategies they employed to sustain their expanded services following the end of their grant funding.
At the conclusion of this activity the participant should be better able to:
- Describe an HIV screening and care expansion project from planning through implementation
- Discuss the importance of engaging leadership to support sustaining integrated care
- Explain elements of making the business case to support integrated care
