Community Collaboration and Data Sharing Save Lives and Reduce Costs
Communities across the nation are searching for ways to coordinate care for individuals suffering from substance abuse disorder. One community with an innovative solution is Nashua, New Hampshire.
Hoin Samantha Cassista, Quality Improvement Specialist at Partnership for Successful Living in Nashua for a complimentary one-hour webinar discussing their innovative Safe Station program.
Date: April 5, 2017
Time: 1:00 p.m. ET
In the Safe Station program, anyone seeking treatment or recovery from addiction to opioids or other substances may visit a city fire station at any time for help. Once at the station, instead of contacting law enforcement, a trained firefighter will immediately connect the individual with a representative from Partnership for Successful Living.
In this interactive webinar, Samantha will discuss her experience establishing a care coordination framework that:
- Brings together local government, the fire department, health, and social service providers to help individuals suffering from substance use disorder
- Reduces fatal overdoses in the community
- Uses data to provide the right services at the right time for these individuals
- Reduces overall costs to the community by reducing the costs of imprisonment and emergency room visits
She will also provide a brief demonstration of the Care Coordination workflow; from the time an individual sets foot in a fire station until they have a unique care plan created for them. We hope you can join us.
