Courage Center is receiving an award to test a community-based medical home model to serve 300 adults with disabilities and complex health conditions, particularly complex neurological conditions, in Minneapolis - St. Paul metropolitan area. The intervention will coordinate and improve access to primary and specialty care, increase adherence to care, and empower participants to better manage their own health. Over 50 Independent Living Skills Specialists, Peer Leaders, and other health professionals will be trained with enhanced skills to fulfill the medical home mission. This community-based and patient-centered approach is expected to reduce avoidable hospitalizations, lower cost, and improve the quality of care for this vulnerable group of people with an estimated savings of over $2 million over the three-year award.
