Management and policy research to identify best practices in care coordination and test and evaluate effective care coordination practices.
The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation has funded HRET to strengthen care transitions by creating Huddle for Care, a website designed to foster sharing and learning between individuals in the care transitions field. The project is creating a forum in which transitional care program implementers can share stories and effective tools. The project is building a care transitions community within and beyond local areas as well as nurturing mutual support and collaboration across programs throughout the country.
Huddle for Care provides the functionality of a website, the live interaction of user-controlled listservs, and the collaborative spirit often found in social media in one central repository. The project includes the development of a mobile application. HRET serves as a primary contractor on this four year engagement. Additional subcontractors partnering with HRET on this project include Gravitytank and the Center for Case Management.
The project team is overseen by Shannon Woodford, program manager and includes Shereen Shojaat, program specialist with additional members to be added in the future as needed.
