Grant Awarded to Further Partnership Between Primary Care and Local Public Health

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is awarding a learning community grant to the Morrison-Todd-Wadena Community Health Board in partnership with CentraCare clinic in Long Prairie, MN.

Through this learning community opportunity, the Morrison-Todd-Wadena Community Health Board will focus on the work in Todd County and CentraCare-Long Prairie Clinic. Staff from both agencies and key community partners will work with a facilitator hired by Minnesota Department of Health to work on strengthening their relationship through expanding understanding of each agency’s role, capacity, and responsibilities, and develop a plan that includes implementation with community partners. In developing this plan they will use their community health needs assessment and primary care clinic data. The plan will specifically focus on addressing the needs of the Latino community. The award is for $50,000 for an eight month project through the end of September 2017.

This project is part of a $45 million State Innovation Model (SIM) cooperative agreement, awarded to the Minnesota Departments of Health and Human Services in 2013 by The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to help implement the Minnesota Accountable Health Model.
