In the Gulf Region, we are partnered with the Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI) on the first-ever CCHH Demonstration Project. The two-year, $250,000 demonstration was designed to help enhance the capacity of selected health center sites to move beyond the patient-centered medical home model and serve as trusted, effective partners in community prevention. Five clinics (two in Louisiana, and one each in Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi) tested strategic implementation of the CCHH model.
Lessons From the Community-Centered Health Home Demonstration Project: Patient-Centered Medical Homes Can Improve Health Conditions in Their Surrounding Communities, in the journal Preventing Chronic Disease - co-authored by PI and the Louisiana Public Health Institute - describes the experience of clinics in Gulf Coast states in creating Community-Centered Health Home (CCHH) Models, and validates the model’s potential to improve community health conditions.
In the early phases of the project, LPHI shared a report detailing early findings and recommendations for implementing and advancing CCHH.
In 2017, LPHI released a follow-up report, detailing findings from the first coordinated demonstration of the CCHH model in the nation.
