The Connecticut Hospital Association (CHA) announced a partnership with Unite Us, a leading social care coordination platform, to build a statewide coordinated care network of health and social services provider organizations to deliver integrated care. The technology platform will better connect consumers to local social service agencies that help with housing, food, transportation, employment, and more.
CHA and Unite Us are implementing a statewide network that will connect Connecticut hospitals and health systems with community-based organizations to deliver integrated care. The network of organizations will be connected through a shared technology platform (Unite Us) to send and receive secure and accurate referrals to connect individuals to an array of services to address their social needs.
Regional implementation of the network is under way, including working with local community-based organizations and hospitals. This work will include developing a resource database that leverages the existing 211 Connecticut, a program of the United Way of Connecticut, as part of a statewide network connecting community-based organizations to each hospital.
The Connecticut Hospital Association has been dedicated to serving Connecticut’s hospitals and health systems since 1919. Through state and federal advocacy, the Connecticut Hospital Association represents the interests of Connecticut’s hospitals and health systems on key health care issues in the areas of quality and consumer safety, access and coverage, workforce, community health, health equity, and hospital reimbursement.
Unite Us is an outcome-focused technology company that builds coordinated care networks of health and human service providers. The company empowers both medical and social service provider organizations to work together, integrating health and social care. With Unite Us, provider organizations across sectors can send and receive secure referrals, track every person’s total health journey, and report on tangible outcomes across a full range of services in a centralized, cohesive, and collaborative ecosystem. This social infrastructure helps communities transform their ability to track outcomes, improve health, and measure impact at scale.
