A SUCCESSFUL TA EXPERIENCE
As TA providers we supported the design and implementation of a community-wide model for patients with complex needs for an integrated health system as it prepared for risk-based Medicaid contracting in California. We co-designed a rural site’s cross-sector collaborative that resulted in reductions of 78% for emergency department visits, 80% for inpatient admissions, 66% for hospital days, and 95% for emergency response. The health system made this model a core component of its enterprise strategy, hiring us to scale the approach in 40 additional sites.

ORGANIZATION FUN FACTS
- We are known for our morning line-dance huddles. Monday mornings typically do not bring a lot of energy so we incorporate conga lines, the Electric Slide and other line dances to kick off the week. We’ve found that dancing is good for the soul and employee wellness. What might start out as a care team huddle of about 15 people can turn into a conga line of 50 staff members. It’s how we roll!
