The Bread of Healing Clinic recently applied for and was accepted into The Collaborative for the Advancement of Social Health Integration (CASHI). CASHI brings together 20 hospital systems, academic medical centers, a few federally qualified health centers across the nation… and one free clinic!
This is a new effort by Health Leads, the provider of our social work database at the clinic that helps us organize and mange our patients’ unmet social needs (housing, food, etc.).
For 18 months, a core team from Bread of Healing will participate in a learning program to improve patients’ social support. Bread of Healing has received a $10,000 stipend to participate in a variety of face-tp-face meetings, on site visits, and virtual learning sessions. We are excited about the possibilities of developing programs to better identify and better resource patients’ social needs.
