This Year’s Workshops & Materials

 

  • Workshop A: Developing Quality Guidelines for CHW Programs

    Notes from Workshop A

     

  • Workshop B: Designing CHW Payment Models

    Overview: Participants in this workshop will dissect and evaluate various payment models for CHWs within community and provider organizations. Participants will design their own models and discuss the viability of those models as small groups and a large group. This workshop is a follow-up to MiCHWA’s stakeholder forums.

  • Workshop C: Scaling CHW Education: A review of needs and map to the future

    Overview: Participants in this workshop will review existing CHW education practices in Michigan and discuss results from an employer needs assessment. Group will also review progress to date on MiCHWA’s CHW registry and certification processes and provide input. Evaluation data from MiCHWA’s pilot training courses will also be available.

    Notes from Workshop C

  • Workshop D: Understanding Data: What and how do we share?

    Overview: Participants in this workshop will grapple with data and data sharing. How do you share client/patient data between health plans, health systems, and community agencies? What role does the CHW play? Participants will discuss how data sharing between stakeholders could work and what systems can be put in place to avoid service duplication while improving population health by addressing social determinants.
