Health Network: A Care Coordination Program for Mobile Patients

Health Network, a program of the Migrant Clinician's Network, assures case management and continuity of care for mobile or highly transient patients, by providing “Bridge case management”, medical record transfers, language interpretation, health education and other direct support. Enrollment is quick and easy, and services are subsidized for FQHCs under a cooperative agreement with HRSA. We'll explore causes and healthcare impacts of high mobility and housing instability, and learn how FQHCs can use Health Network to ensure positive health outcomes for their most vulnerable patients. 
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Upon completion of the webinar participants will be able to describe: 
• Economic and social factors contributing to increased mobility and housing instability among Florida FQHC patients 
• Impact of mobility on healthcare access, quality, and outcomes 
• The central importance of care coordination for mobile and vulnerable populations 
• The goals, activities, criteria and enrollment process for Health Network
