Program Description

Georgians who depend on safety-net clinics for their health care often have difficulty accessing the specialty services they need or may have to wait a long time for them. While initiatives should be locally designed and implemented, they share goals and strategies in the efforts made to impact the demand for care, the supply of physicians, and the coordination of patient care. Learn from one of the state's most successful specialty care coordination programs, the Health Access Program at Good News Clinics in Gainesville, about building a referral network.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the presentation, attendees should be able to:
- Engage specialists in obtaining care for patients
- Develop a common understanding of the challenges of implementation
- Identify resources and partnerships required for implementation
