Comprehensive Care, Community and Culture Program Evidence Brief

Overview

The research team at the University of Chicago is piloting a randomized controlled trial to establish and begin to evaluate a new model of care: the Comprehensive Care, Community and Culture Program (C4P). 

C4P seeks to both address social determinants of health and empower patients to better help themselves. In addition to receiving care from a physician in both the hospital and the clinic, C4P patients are regularly assessed for unmet social needs, such as housing, food insecurity, public benefits, social engagement. C4P patients also receive access to a community health worker to help address their unmet needs.

Read how the program improved health for older adults while reducing health care costs. The brief reviews what solution was tested, the research findings and recommendations for action based on this evidence.
