Community Health Team
Community Health Team at Fletcher Allen
Fletcher Allen’s patient-centered medical homes are primary care settings that improve quality and educate patients, empowering them to become partners in their care to create optimum health.
Patient-Centered Medical Homes include Community Health Teams - nurses, social workers, dietitians and health educators, who work together to help you manage your condition.
The Community Health Team provides a number of services, including:
- Conducting health screening assessments
- Helping you manage your medications
- Connecting you with community/financial resources
In 2011, patients cared for by a Community Health Team experienced a 22.5% decrease in hospital admissions and 33.7% decrease in Emergency Department admissions.
Six months after leaving the Community Health Team, 60% of diabetes patients maintained weight loss, and 54.2% of diabetes patients improved their cholesterol.
Fletcher Allen’s Patient-Centered Medical Homes and Community Health Teams are an outgrowth of the Vermont Blueprint for Health, a statewide partnership to move health care to a system focused on preventing illness and complications.
Fletcher Allen has served as one of three pilot sites for the Blueprint for Health and a leader in Vermont in designing community health teams. We are currently expanding this model of care to a number of primary care practices around the state.
