New "My Care Community" Collaboration Announced

Linn County Public Health, in partnership with 19 area agencies, announced a new collaboration aimed at enhancing communications among independent health and social service organizations to provide better care and measurable improvements in health outcomes.

The collaboration, called My Care Community, is based on a nationally-recognized model and is the first of its kind in Iowa. It allows participating service providers to coordinate services needed to improve the health and well-being of area residents who have chosen to join the program. As a result, providers can make seamless referrals to outside organizations, better anticipate the future needs of clients, and improve quality of life for families.
