ADULTS WITH
COMPLEX CARE NEEDS.

In 2015, NYP and community partners came together to develop a program to support adults who have at least two comorbid chronic conditions including diabetes, heart failure, chronic respiratory disease and renal failure.

Bilingual CHWs serve as the single point of contact for patients who enroll in the Adults with Complex Care Needs. Participants receive culturally-sensitive, comprehensive information on three key messages: knowing your diagnoses, knowing how to access care and learning how to manage your conditions at home.

Participants receive support on setting and meeting goals around their care, including, but not limited to: medications, medical equipment, and appointment adherence. They also benefit from home visits, accompanied provider visits, and social referrals to address barriers such as: housing, immigration, education, and employment, among many others. The CHWs are based in partner CBOs, allowing them to remain anchored in the community while also maintaining a strong presence in the Patient Centered Medical Homes of the Ambulatory Care Network (ACN) where they conduct rounds and provide culturally appropriate education.
