Transportation: A Game Changer for Care Coordination (HealthierHere Partner Learning Webinar)
February 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Partner Learning Webinar on Transportation: A Game Changer for Care Coordination
As King County prepares for the longest major highway closure the Puget Sound Region has ever seen (SR 99), transportation challenges are top of mind. But what about transportation’s impact on health every day?
Each year, an estimated 3.6 million people in the United States do not obtain medical care due to transportation issues. Transportation plays a major role in access to the care and resources that people need to be healthy. Transportation is also one of the top three social determinants of health that HealthierHere partners have highlighted as priorities to improve health and health equity in our region.
Join HealthierHere and local expert Julie Povick, of Seattle Children’s Hospital, for a discussion about transportation and health. Ms. Povick is the Manager, External Relations, at Seattle Children’s, and has a unique range of skills and firsthand knowledge about addressing the challenges of transportation in health care. She will share insights from her experience ensuring that Medicaid individuals have transportation to access the care they need, and will reflect on how transportation can impact coordination of care.
Please share this free webinar opportunity with colleagues who may be interested, including administrators, case managers, care coordinators or anyone curious about this important topic.
This webinar is provided to support organizations making the transition to integrated whole person care in a value-based payment environment. It is offered free of charge as part of HealthierHere’s mission to improve health and health equity in King County, Washington. For more learning opportunities, please visit www.HealthierHere.org.
