AthenaInsight: “Community Networks Save Lives”
In their article Community Networks Save Lives, AthenaInsight looks at Trenton Health Team, and how our multi-sector collaboration lays the foundation as a “pioneering model of community-based coordinated care” beyond hospital doors.
The article describes the different elements of THT and its partners’ unique collaborations, and how together, the partnership encapsulates the 5 essential qualities of communities succeeding in caring for populations: a neutral convening backbone, data sharing, a dense network of diverse partners, coordinated implementation, and ongoing evaluation.
Also highlighted are Capital Health and Henry J. Austin Health Center, founding partners of THT. By coming together over 10 years ago and focusing on common goals instead of competition, THT, its founders, and its partners have begun to pave the way for community care.
