Collaborative, Patient-Centered, Value Based Care:

Introducing Medical-Legal Partnership

This unique program demonstrates how an inter-professional community collaboration, the medical-legal partnership (MLP), can improve health status through integrated care for patients from disadvantaged backgrounds. With an eye on legal and medical coordination, this program will allow doctors and lawyers an opportunity to coordinate a systematic approach to solving non-medical problems that exacerbate health problems and have a direct impact on access to care.

Presenters will explain how the collaboration among a large, urban-based health system, a state university law school, and an urban-based legal services organization known as The Health Law Partnership (HeLP) has improved the health and well-being of the patients served, and the community’s goodwill toward the healthcare organization, and created inter-professional educational opportunities for the professionals working with the collaboration.

This program is sponsored by TBA's Access to Justice Committee and there is no charge for attendees. Lunch will be provided.

We also have available a one-hour program introducing Medical Legal Partnerships. You can access the program here
