Unmet social needs and an overall lack of service coordination are barriers to good health and quality of life. Enter the Care Partner Network.
What is the Care Partner Network?
The Care Partner Network is a collaboration of regional healthcare providers, social service agencies, and other community-based organizations working together to better support the health and social service needs of individuals in our communities.
The Care Partner Network creates a common table that enables direct and more efficient communication between community organizations to better navigate and coordinate services that impact the health and well-being of those in our communities. This includes addressing important issues such as housing, utilities, transportation, education, food insecurity, health, safety, and other personal needs.
As part of the Care Partner Network, organizations have access to Unite Us, a web-based platform, which creates a closed-loop referral network to facilitate inter-agency communication and support effective and efficient referrals. This includes notifications to individuals, care teams, and organizations when resources are provided.
The vision of the Care Partner Network is that all needs in the community are connected to available resources in a timely and effective manner.
United Way of Southwest Missouri and Southeast Kansas is proud to coordinate the Care Partner Network. If your organization would like to be part of the Care Partner Network or would like more information, contact Jennifer VanHoose at 417.624.0153.
