About This Event

Multiple new initiatives, including California’s statewide Medicaid program transformation, CalAIM, have prompted the health care ecosystem to make complex shifts toward expanding and deepening cross-sector partnerships with social service organizations. This is the second webinar in a series from the California Improvement Network (CIN) to help organizations gain a deeper understanding of the intricacies of overcoming challenges in such partnerships.

In this webinar, representatives from a community-based organization focused on housing and a federally qualified health center in Los Angeles will discuss the operational challenges in their partnership to provide street medicine and supportive services to individuals who are homeless. John Maceri at CIN partner The People Concern and Anita Zamora at Venice Family Clinic will share how this partnership was formed, how they have overcome operational and funding challenges over the years, and advice for other organizations who are in similar partnerships.

Individuals that work in the following roles or areas are highly encouraged to join the webinar:

  • Leaders at all levels
  • Staff directing and supporting partnerships within street medicine programs
  • Staff at organizations that are seeking to fund similar partnerships

At the end of the workshop participants will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the intricacies of overcoming spoken and unspoken challenges within partnerships between community-based organizations and health care organizations.
  • Learn strategies to address operational challenges within a partnership, including staffing, sharing equipment and data, aligning processes, and gaining consistent funding.
