Integrating community health workers on quality improvement teams: Lessons from the field
Community health workers (CHWs) need to be involved in healthcare quality improvement (QI) teams and projects especially when it comes to social health integration. Engaging CHWs meaningfully on QI teams ensures healthcare systems are designed by those affected by those systems. Equipping CHWs with the tools to collect and analyze data, and design and track improvements, ensures stronger integration onto care teams, better job satisfaction, and most importantly, effective systems that best serve patients.
