Although MIH-CP has been practiced for many years, few or no communities have a robust portfolio of services like Montgomery County, Indiana. From a program that provides prenatal and postpartum care to programs focused on older adult fall prevention and chronic diseases, these award-winning programs support residents’ health and wellness from cradle to grave. In this workshop, attendees will learn how to develop, implement, and eventually demonstrate the value of MIH-CP programs in their communities. Following brief overviews of the Montgomery County maternal and infant wellness, opioid overdose response, vaccination, fall prevention, and chronic disease programs, attendees will reflect on your current or proposed MIH-CP program(s) through a series of guided activities. Roundtable discussions with representatives from a healthcare system, insurer, university researcher, and the MIH-CP programs will provide further opportunities to apply the tips, tricks, and lessons learned of the Montgomery County MIH-CP programs and their partners. The workshop will conclude with a discussion of sustainable MIH-CP business models and a facilitated panel with the individuals who supported Montgomery County’s success.
Explain how program developers considered the community needs and matched program components to these needs.
Explain how numerous MIH-CP programs function independently and interdependently to address community healthcare gaps.
