Each year, the National Center selects host organizations across the country to hold regional complex care convenings in their communities. These convenings gather local stakeholders to address a barrier to person-centered, integrated care. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic forcing our 2020-2021 host organizations to be flexible with the format and timing of their convenings, they were each able to hold deeply productive gatherings.
Each set of host organizations wrote up their experiences and findings, along with helpful resources for others, in the publications listed below. Explore the resources to learn more about each regional convening’s planning process and outcomes.
