Anthem BCBS Colorado is seeking services of Community Health Worker (CHW), Patient Navigators (PN) and/or Social Workers (SW) for a High Needs High Cost (HNHC) member pilot program in which the CHW/PN/SW program vendor will receive referrals from Anthem BCBS Care Management and/or from the attributed PCP/EPHC group. It is desired that the contracted vendor will provide telephonic out-reach in addition to hospital and home visits for assessment, engagement and follow up. Additional documentation of critical strategies and outcomes in compliance with a standard anthem report format on a Monthly/quarterly basis. The goal of the pilot is to determine if integration of CHW/PN/SW into the care management team will decrease ER utilization, decrease inpatient hospitalizations, decrease readmissions, lower lengths of hospital stays and increase primary care connectivity. Other expectations include but are not limited to collaboration with Anthem’s Care Management team and the member’s primary care physician on findings and care plan development, determination of and removal of social determinants to health. It is also expected the vendor will participate in monthly and quarterly clinical panel discussion with Anthem Care Management and Provider Practice groups participating in the pilot project. Join us July 27 11a-1p to hear more about this opportunity with Dr Elizabeth Kraft and Susan Bumpas presenting.

Are you interested in learning more about cultural competency and utilizing 
cultural competency resources to best fit your organizational needs?

The Southeastern Health Equity Council (SHEC) released its Cultural Competency Resource Guide in 2015. The guide is comprised of resources, trainers, institutions, and publications about cultural and linguistic competency that can be shared with partners to help address cultural barriers with health care systems. Additionally, this guide includes important terms to become familiar with to develop a common language around cultural competency. To view the resource guide, visit


To follow up on the release of the Cultural Competency Resource Guide, the SHEC will host a series of webinars. The webinars will include speakers from organizations that focus on cultural competency. 

The focus of the webinar will be the Community Engagement and Cultural Diversity Program at the Miami Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) and the services it provides to bring cultural and linguistic assistance to the Hispanic/Latino community in Florida.
