Journal of Ambulatory Care Management: April/June 2020 - Volume 43 - Issue 2 - p 157-168 doi: 10.1097/JAC.0000000000000320 Buy Metrics Abstract Clinic-based community health workers (cCHWs) are a growing workforce who can facilitate medical and social support services, particularly for patients with complex, chronic conditions. We assessed CHWs', employers', and patients' perceptions and readiness for CHW integration into clinical settings. We found varying levels of readiness between the groups, offset by conditional implementation concerns, such as need for clearer training, role delineation, expectations, and trust. Integrating CHWs as members of the complex care team holds promise for optimal patient engagement. Maximizing CHWs' potentials through readiness efforts can further support the triple/quadruple aims and goals for the Health Home Program. © 2019 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
