Full Job Description
The Comprehensive Care, Community and Culture Program (C4P) aims to improve the overall health and well-being of patients in the program by addressing a wide range of medical and social needs. The C4P program builds off of the Comprehensive Care Physician Program, which offers patients at high risk of hospitalization a comprehensive care physician (CCP) who cares for them in both the hospital and the clinic. In addition to receiving care from a CCP, C4P patients are regularly asked about a range of unmet social needs and given access to a community health worker and community-based arts and culture programming. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has funded a randomized trial of C4P at the University of Chicago. AmeriCorps members at the University of Chicago and Ingalls Memorial Hospital will be responsible for extending the reach of the C4P program to impact patient experience with care and health outcomes, lower hospitalization rates, and resolve unmet social needs for participants.
