RHP12 Learning Collaborative-February 2015 Summary

Thanks to everyone who attended the RHP12 Learning Collaborative in spite of the weather! We modified the times of some of the presentations in an effort to get everyone home early and safe. Overall the learning collaborative was a success! Here is a copy of the Sign-In Sheets if you need a record for reporting.

In summary there were 64 participants (25 providers represented)

 }Take Away: Overall Event went very well

 }Improvement Suggestions for DY4

      • Possibly having breakout sessions on more project topics to cover more of what being accomplished and how through the various wavier projects
      • Would be nice to facilitate people (groups) with similar projects, a discussion session; informal for conversation about projects

"Childress - RHP 12 Transformation thru Collaboration"

In an effort to capture a little glimpse at what is happening in our region as a result of our state's DSRIP initiative UMC sent our video team to Childress, Texas. In Childress our team met with the CEO, John Henderson and a patient, Kris Hague, impacted by a collaborative project that came about because of relationships developed through DSRIP efforts.
