Partnership Brings Health Plan, Community Organizations Together to Improve Population Health

Albany, NY (PRWEB) July 25, 2013

CDPHP® is partnering with Trinity Alliance of the Capital Region and the Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO) to bring “The Community Health Project” to CDPHP members in Albany and Troy.

Through this unique collaboration, trained community health workers from Trinity Alliance and CEO are reaching out to CDPHP members who have been identified as not maximizing their health benefits. The goal of this initiative is to educate and empower individuals and families to help them identify and achieve their health goals.

This free service will provide information on caring for children with asthma, eating well on a budget, managing chronic diseases and more. In addition, community health workers can assist individuals with accessing medical care through a primary care doctor.

“Our partnership with Trinity Alliance and CEO allows us to contact members who we may otherwise not be able to reach,” said Dr. Liza Whalen, medical director, CDPHP. “The community health workers are a trusted source, providing the outreach needed to keep our members healthy.”

“Part of Trinity Alliance’s mission is to promote health and well-being. We are proud to combine our know-how and expertise with CDPHP and CEO in order to enhance individuals’ and families’ access to health care information and resources,” said Trinity Alliance CEO Harris Oberlander.

“CEO is proud to announce our partnership with CDPHP in The Community Health Project to offer Rensselaer County’s CDPHP members support and guidance,” said Selina Dobbs, Community Health Worker for CEO. “Our trained community health workers will focus on assessing and engaging identified CDPHP members to find solutions in securing and maintaining proper health care. Together with CDPHP, we look forward to contributing to the health and well-being of our community as a whole.”
