Tanager Place selected for SAMHSA-HRSA Innovation Community project


Tanager Place was selected to participate in a nine month project sponsored by SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions (CIHS).  Tanager Place joins 32 other organizations across the nation for the Innovation Communities project for Population Health Management in Behavioral Health Organizations.

“Learning collaboratively aligns with our goals of helping to move high-risk individuals to a low-risk health status,” said Kim Venner, Integrated Services Administrator, who explained that the focus of the team is aimed at creating assessments, tools and pathways for the pre-diabetic and diabetic youth that are served through Tanager Place’s Pediatric Integrated Health programs.

Throughout the duration of the project, the core team will attend monthly webinars and work with a mentor from CIHS.  Tanager Place’s project core team will consist of Ms. Venner, Kelly Bakewell, Pediatric Integrated Health Home Manager, Kathleen Wild, ARNP, Katherine Shea, RN and Jessica Kelly, Director of Quality Improvement.

“Tanager Place applied as an ongoing commitment to improving the health of the youth we serve,” said Ms. Venner.  “We are looking to build on the early success of our Integrated Health Homes, a program which began just a short 17 months ago.”

Upon completion of the nine month project, the results will be published to share with others in the healthcare field.
