What's Been Happening at Hennepin Health?

  • On September 13, Hennepin Health staff from Quality and Medical Administration participated in Minnesota Community Measurement’s Annual Seminar. Jennifer DeCubellis and Ross Owen presented a plenary session on how Hennepin County is measuring social and health needs across multiple program areas with a particular focus on Medicaid expansion enrollees. 
  • On September 19, Hennepin Health care coordination manager, Renee Levesque, participated alongside other national experts in an invited panel in New Jersey with the Good Care Collaborative. Convened by the Camden Coalition of Health Care Providers, the Good Care Collaborative is a coalition of providers and advocates from across New Jersey’s health care spectrum committed to sensible Medicaid reform and models of good care. 
  • On October 12, Hennepin Health and HCMC will host the Coral Initiative, a national group of state-based quality improvement organizations that includes Minnesota’s own Medicare quality improvement organization, Stratis Health. Participants will learn from Hennepin Health’s collaborative accountable care organization (ACO) model and tour the Hennepin Health Access Clinic at HCMC. 
  • On October 24, Hennepin County health strategy director, Ross Owen, will provide the keynote address to a learning collaborative of California counties in Burbank, CA. Twenty-five counties in California are implementing pilot programs called Whole Person Care through the state’s Medicaid waiver 1115 demonstration. In this first year of the pilot programs, services that focus on low-income, high-need county residents – many homeless and some who are coming out of the corrections system - are being provided. The counties are in the throes of setting up interagency partnerships, data sharing agreements, and linking with other community resources and getting members enrolled in the program – challenges very familiar to us at Hennepin Health!

Hennepin Health Hits the Streets!

Hennepin Health Billboard

In September, Hennepin Health kicked off a billboard campaign to continue generating awareness about the organization and product offerings. Twenty billboards will remain visible throughout Hennepin County through the end of the year. The one in the picture is located on 4th Ave. between Washington Ave. and 3rd St.

Many Faces of Community Health

Hennepin Health will be attending and tabling at Many Faces of Community Health, an annual two-day conference that explores improving care and reducing health disparities in under-served populations and among those living in poverty. Many Faces brings information and resources on clinical care, public policy and health innovations to Minnesota’s health care community with a focus on safety net providers. This year's conference will be held on October 26-27, and represented by Hennepin Health's marketing/communications and outreach team.
