We helped to plan and run a webinar to share the results of a health care home study we did with the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center’s Urban Health Partners. It was a great success! We helped to recruit a moderator and panelists who shared their views of implementing and running health care homes in Bernalillo County. We also assisted in overall planning and promotion, and were one of the presenters.
Sara from Soda Creek had the pleasure to present with Leah Steimel from the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center Urban Health Partners (UHP) at the 2013 New Mexico Public Health Association Conference: Disparity 2 Equity Strategies and Solutions. Our presentation was called: “Health Care Home: Experiences of Vulnerable Adult in Bernalillo County and Implications Moving Forward.” Sara has worked with Leah and UHP for many years, most recently on a research study where we’re evaluating the health care home pathway for the Pathways to a Healthy Bernalillo County program.
We’ve been working with the University of New Mexico’s Urban Health Partners (UHP) since last summer on a project to better understand and to evaluate the patient-centered medical home model. For this project, Soda Creek first developed the research tools and conducted focus groups and interviews with community members and health-care providers, and we are now working with the UHP team to analyze the data. We hope to have results in the coming months.
