Complex Care Ecosystem DiagramIn developing the Blueprint for Complex Care, we heard the need for more local connectivity to create coordinated systems of care for individuals with complex health and social needs.

To address this concern, in 2020 the National Center will hold six convenings of regional complex care stakeholders across the country to address complex care barriers in their own communities. This project aims to facilitate information sharing and collaboration on a regional level and to foster ecosystems of complex care, as outlined in the Blueprint for Complex Care.

2020 Regional convening selection process:
Application opens: January 15, 2020
Application closes: March 6, 2020 (Deadline extended!)
Host organizations selected: Week of April 6, 2020
Convenings take place: November, December 2020, first quarter of 2021

Applications for the 2020 regional convening cohort are now closed.
