AccessHealth Spartanburg announced Tuesday it has been selected to participate in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s national demonstration program.
The organization, founded in 2010 with the mission to improve health outcomes for low-income, uninsured adults in Spartanburg County, will receive a $250,000 grant from the foundation.
It will enable AccessHealth Spartanburg to hire a community health worker to focus on high-need, high-cost patients and study the practice’s effectiveness.
The two-year program, Transforming Complex Care, is aimed a refining and spreading new models to address the needs of the most complex patients.
“For six years, AccessHealth Spartanburg not only has been developing new strategies for delivering health care to our most vulnerable citizens, we have been delivering outcomes never before seen in our community,” said Carey Rothschild, Director of AccessHealth Spartanburg. “Being chosen to participate in the Transforming Complex Care program is both an acknowledgement of the improved outcomes our program produces and a challenge to increase and broaden them.”
AccessHealth Spartanburg is one of six organizations across the nation that will participate in the program, which is led by the Center for Health Care Strategies.
