Patient Activation Measures – Project 2.d.i

Overview

There are many reasons why people do not interact with the health care system, such as lack of knowledge of health issues, language, literacy, lack of insurance or understanding of coverage, cultural barriers, embarrassment, to name a few. Due to these issues, this project is focused on increasing patient activation related to health care paired with increased resources that can help the uninsured as well as the non-and-low utilizing populations, helping them gain access to and take advantage of the benefits that are associated with the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) projects, particularly primary and preventative services.

Care Compass Network’s Goals

  • Provide knowledge, skills, and the confidence to actively engage in patients’ health and change behaviors to achieve better health outcomes.

Who is Eligible to Participate in the Project?

Any Hospital or Community-based Organization that provides a service(s) to Medicaid members and the uninsured within Care Compass Network’s nine-county region.
