INNOVATION COMMUNITY OVERVIEW
In this rapidly changing healthcare environment it is imperative that organizations know how to keep pace. For 2018, SAMHSA-HRSA CIHS is providing an opportunity for qualified organizations to take part in rapid-cycle improvement process to innovate services through involvement in an Innovation Community. Innovation Communities are expert facilitated groups of up to 15 organizations who come together to focus on an area of behavioral and primary healthcare integration innovation. Organizations learn from experts and each other during an intensive four-month period.
Each Innovation Community is facilitated by two CIHS staff and up to three additional subject matter experts. Teams from participating organizations set goals specific to their integration needs and then build skills and strategies throughout the Innovation Community to address these goals. Participating teams come from a variety of organizations who offer integrated primary and behavioral health care services and will receive the knowledge and skills to effectively implement the innovation topic at their organization.
