PROMISING PRACTICE: An Innovative Three-Way Complex Care Collaboration: Berkeley Center for Independent Living (CIL), LifeLong Medical Care, and Alameda Alliance Health Plan, Berkeley, California
This webinar introduced early outcomes from a complex care initiative carried out in Berkeley California. With support from a 2012 Innovations Award from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Berkeley’s Center for Independent Living, the Federally Qualified Health Center, LifeLong Medical Care, and Alameda Alliance Health Plan undertook a 3-year ‘Complex Care Initiative’ at three LifeLong clinics. The project worked with high-risk individuals with disabilities to reduce hospitalizations and improve participant health and community living by embedding Peer Coaches from CIL at the clinics who provided on-site IL-services. LifeLong, who had hired registered nurses as Care Managers, and CIL’s Peer Coaches, worked with clinic staff as part of the multidisciplinary team.
