$363,000 to Train Community Health Workers
Comments : 0
With Aaron’s help, a for-profit home health agency in New York City was just informed they won a workforce development contract valued at more than $363,000 to train up to 1,000 community health workers (CHW). This initiative will help meet the City’s growing need for CHWs who are integrated into care management teams and have skill sets which insurers, HMOs, hospitals and managed care organizations need to better track value based quality measures (VBQM). There is a big push to embed VBQMs into the standard of care for home/community health as a means to improve patient outcomes.
