Members in Action Case Study: Penn Center for Community Health Workers

Since 2013, Penn Medicine’s Center for Community Health Workers (PCCHW) has served as a national center of excellence for community health worker (CHW) research, patient care and dissemination. The Center designed IMPaCT, a standardized, scalable, evidence-based CHW model of care, to help health care organizations reach beyond their own walls to help low-income patients address the root causes of their poor health.
