The role of community-based organizations in improving chronic care for safety-net populations.
Researchers conducted a multi-stakeholder qualitative study to capture the multi-level influences on health for those living in socio-economically deprived contexts. Participants were patients with chronic illnesses in San Francisco neighborhoods with high chronic disease rates, community leaders serving the same neighborhoods, or providers from San Francisco's public health care delivery system. The researchers identified several key themes. They concluded that their results contributed new evidence toward the community domain of the Chronic Care Model, and health care systems must intentionally partner with community-based organizations to address social determinants of health and improve community resources for chronic care management.
