Throughout the year, RHP 17 will host various learning collaborative events in the region. Events will vary in size and structure, ranging from the two face-to-face events held each year to various webinar or speaker opportunities. Regional events may be co-hosted with Region 8 out of Round Rock and/or include participation in activities with our peers in the neighboring Houston region, RHP 3. Additionally, RHP 17 will distribute a monthly or bimonthly newsletter, as well as hold a monthly call to promote learning collaborative activities and encourage sharing and active participation among regional stakeholders.
September 16, 2015 - College Station (site TBD)RHP 17 will host the second and final face-to-face event of DY4 in College Station, Texas. The event site and other details are being finalized and will be shared soon. The event will focus on population health, as well as measuring improvements in population health outcomes and the role of Category 3. Regional Stakeholders will have the opportunity to hear presentations by the Center for Community Health Development at the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health, as well as by representatives of the Texas Health & Human Services Commission. Additionally, posters for some of the region's DSRIP projects will be displayed, and attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a "raise the floor" collaborative discussion around assessing, implementing, and reporting health outcome improvements. The event is open to all interested parties and free to attend, but registration is required. Please RSVP to the RHP 17 Anchor Team by August 31, 2015.
Cohort work groups can help promote efficiencies and improve health care delivery and access throughout the region by fostering collaboration on continuous quality improvement efforts. RHP 17 initially established two work groups: a Behavioral Health & Primary Care group and a Care Transitions & Navigation group. Initial aims are aligned and group meetings are going to be a combined effort for the near future as participants collaborate on the development of a regional resource and referral guide.
