Funding for the Livingston and Washtenaw County Community Health Innovation Region

In June, the Livingston-Washtenaw County Community Health Innovation Region (CHIR) received $75,000 from the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan and subsequently and secured a research team, led by Dr. Andy Ryan from the U-M School of Public Health, to both help the Community Health Needs Assessment and local impact evaluation of the State Innovation Model case management for frequent emergency department users intervention. 

The State Innovation Model team at the WHI later established 3 committees: Intervention, Data and IT, and the Patient-Centered Medical Home committee. The committees were chaired by WHI members with support from CHRT staff.
