Throughout 2017, Elevation Health Partners facilitated a community-based stakeholder group to select and enhance an evidence-based community model for asthma. The team completed a six-week capacity building process and selected the Community Healthcare for Asthma Management and Prevention of Symptoms (CHAMPS) – a family-centered, patient-tailored evidence-based pediatric asthma intervention. The CHAMPS intervention combines asthma counseling and in-home mitigation of environmental triggers for patients with poorly controlled or moderate-to severe asthma in primary care settings. The PRAPARE tool is a cornerstone of CHAMPS. Called, Asthma Linkages, this is the first health initiative in the larger California Accountable Communities for Health Initiative (CACHI) framework.

POLST (Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment) turns a person’s wishes about end-of-life care into actionable medical orders. Signed by both a doctor and patient, POLST helps give seriously-ill patients more control over their end-of-life care.

The Elevation Health Partners team worked collaboratively with BluePath Health and the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California (CCCC) to examine the feasibility of an electronic POLST registry in California. This project was funded by the California Health Care Foundation (CHCF).

The feasibility study found that POLST implementation has reached high enough level to support a statewide electronic POLST registry. This effort lead a partnership with the Institute for Population Health Improvement (IPHI) of the UC Davis Health System and funding for an 18-month electronic registry pilot in two counties in California.
