CAREAPP Spotlights

Howard County General Hospital, Community Care Team

June 2018

This month, we would like to highlight the Community Care Team (CCT) at Howard County General Hospital.  The CCT is a valuable partner within the CAREAPP Network and was the first organization to use the referral attachment feature.  Thanks for your continued engagement, CCT!

 

The Community Care Team is a comprehensive support system, which includes a Community Health Worker, a Community Health Nurse, and a Community Social Worker, that facilitates a patient's smooth transition from hospital to home. Check out their website to learn more.

​Dan Demmitt, a trilingual CCT Community Health Worker loves, "developing relationships with clients, understanding their goals, motivations, and strengths [and] being knowledgeable about resources in the community that can help individuals.”  Dan believes that CAREAPP has improved communication for the CCT and explains, “(the) process flow for making referrals to agencies is becoming more streamlined. As the number of agencies accepting referrals grows, so too will the usefulness of this tool for us."

Chase Brexton believes in educating and empowering patients to become active participants in their own care. Check out their website to learn more.

Pamela has been involved in the CAREAPP project since April 2017.  As the Director of Operations at Chase Brexton, she enjoys "ensuring patients have access to health care and developing processes to ensure our patients get the care that they need."  As an early adopter of CAREAPP, she likes "the idea of sending referrals electronically to the agency to allow the agency to know the patients we are referring to them. Many times we give paper referrals to patients and they may not follow up with the appointment, lose the referral, etc. So, this process does make the referral process more efficient."
