Social workers are integral members of healthcare teams, often called upon by providers for their expertise in areas that other medical providers may not be trained to navigate. However, few providers are able to articulate the specific contribution of social workers on health care teams, and methods for financing social work involvement remain a challenge.
Are you facing any of these issues? Join us, and bring your questions for Robyn Golden, Associate Vice President of Population Health and Aging at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, who will discuss building a case for social workers within primary care.
What are Office Hours?
Beginning in January 2018, the National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs will host monthly Office Hours as an opportunity for engagement with subject matter experts across the country. Free of charge and hosted through the teleconferencing platform Zoom, Office Hours will feature hour-long Q&A sessions designed to connect National Center members with experts in relevant areas. Topics will vary from month-to-month and will cover a range of subjects that relate to the field of complex care. Feel free to join as a group and be sure to bring your questions for the session hosts and other participants!
Lynn Overmann, VP for Data-Driven Justice at the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, and David Schwindt, Police Officer at the Iowa City Police Department, will build on their workshop “The Value of Cross-Sector Collaboration: Lessons from the Data-Driven Justice Initiative” presented at Putting Care at the Center 2017 in Los Angeles, CA. In this office hour session, Lynn and Dave will briefly describe their work to gather data across criminal justice, health and social service sectors to coordinate services for individuals with complex needs and a history of criminal justice involvement. Lynn and David will then answer questions about how to leverage integrated data at all levels of an organization.
Example participant questions:
1. How do you work with incomplete data to produce meaningful results?
2. How do I make the case for access to additional data from sources outside of my organization?
Lynn leads the Arnold Foundation’s data-driven justice project, a continuation of work that she started as senior advisor to the U.S. chief technology officer in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. A part of the Foundation’s Criminal Justice Initiative, the effort helps governments use data to identify those who are frequently involved with local criminal justice and health care systems, and assists jurisdictions in finding ways to better serve this population while reducing taxpayer costs.
David Schwindt is a 20-year police officer with the Iowa City Police Department. He has developed law enforcement specific software applications, holds two patents on analyzing Wi-Fi signals, and is the founder of a software startup, Latent Wireless. For the last five years, David has been assigned to foot and bike patrol in the Iowa City Business District. His demeanor and community policing approach have earned him the nickname “Officer Friendly” among the City’s chronically homeless population. David’s knowledge and experience in computer crimes and software development have proven valuable in the DDJI implementation in Johnson County, IA. He has worked closely with many data providers to answer their questions and work toward technology solutions to obtain and integrate their data.
