Learning Collaborative

Collaborative learning occurs when a group of individuals or organizations share information and experiences in an effort to drive change and seek improvement for a common purpose. The RHP 8 learning collaborative seeks to achieve regional impact through shared learning, community engagement, and celebration of success. We believe there can be great benefit to the region at large when stakeholders come together in activities designed to foster collaboration and dialogue geared toward learning and continuous quality improvement.

The design of the RHP 8 learning collaborative is a version of the CMS-recommended IHI model, modified to accommodate our smaller, more rural region. The collaborative structure is very similar to that of our sister region, RHP 17 in College Station, and our larger regional counterpart in Austin, RHP 7, to allow participation across regions by interested providers.

"Individual" and "Regional" mechanisms for learning and sharing, fed by "Core" components, work in a continuous cycle to promote quality improvement and positive regional impact as illustrated below.

Learning Opportunities

Regional Opportunity:

RHP 8 hosted its first face-to-face learning collaborative of DY4 at TAMHSC in Round Rock on February 19, 2015. Guest speakers and panelists shared how collaboration and integration have impacted patients with behavioral healthcare needs. Visit the RHP 8 learning collaborative meeting materials page for handouts and more information. 

Peer-to-Peer Opportunity:

The RHP 8 Anchor team provides an updated list of regional learning collaborative opportunities on our learning collaborative meeting materials page. Please inform the RHP 8 Anchor team of any learning opportunities in other RHPs you feel may be beneficial to others in our region. Additionally, if you attend other-RHP activities, consider sharing updates with RHP 8 stakeholders on the monthly learning collaborative conference calls.

Regional Work Group

RHP 8 Behavioral Health & Primary Care Cohort

The RHP 8 Behavioral Health & Primary Care Cohort aims to bring together DSRIP Providers and other RHP stakeholders who have similar projects, goals, and interests in identified focus areas.

The objective of the Cohort is to foster collaboration through focused quality improvement activities in an effort to promote efficiencies and improve healthcare delivery and access throughout the region. Learn more about the Cohort.
