Throughout the year, RHP 17 will host various learning collaborative events in the region. Events will vary in size and structure, ranging from the two face-to-face events held each year to various webinar or speaker opportunities. Regional events may be co-hosted with Region 8 out of Round Rock and/or include participation in activities with our peers in the neighboring Houston region, RHP 3. Additionally, RHP 17 will distribute a monthly or bimonthly newsletter, as well as hold a monthly call to promote learning collaborative activities and encourage sharing and active participation among regional stakeholders.

Cohort work groups can help promote efficiencies and improve health care delivery and access throughout the region by fostering collaboration on continuous quality improvement efforts. RHP 17 initially established two work groups: a Behavioral Health & Primary Care group and a Care Transitions & Navigation group. Initial aims are aligned and group meetings are going to be a combined effort for the near future as participants collaborate on the development of a regional resource and referral guide.
For more information on the cohort groups, please visit the RHP 17 Cohort Work Groups page.
