Interprofessional Student Hotspotting Learning Collaborative
The AAMC, Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers, Primary Care Progress, and the Council on Social Work Education have issued a call for applicants for the Interprofessional Student Hotspotting Learning Collaborative. The annual, six-month program trains interdisciplinary teams of students from schools around the country to apply a patient-centered approach to working with individuals with complex medical and social needs. The rolling admissions begins February 24, 2017. The final deadline is April 28, 2017.
Student Team Informational Webinar
Thursday, March 9; 2-3 p.m. ET
Participants will learn from pioneers in hotspotting on how to identify patients in communities with multiple complex health conditions who are high-utilizers of care. The program will allow participants to better understand the root cause of their patients' health care issues and how socio-demographic factors may play a role.
Teams are comprised of a wide range of professions, including: medicine, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, social work, public health, psychology, physician assistant, epidemiology, biomedical science, occupational therapy, health administration, medical dietetics, community health and business.
For the first time, we are accepting applications for hotspotting hubs! Become a leader in interprofessional education. RFP applications are due March 31, 2017.

Have you noticed those patients that visit the hospital again and again, whose faces are now recognizable to you? Every hospital has these patients with complex care needs who are admitted four times or more in a six-month window.
Starting with one patient, you can gain insights into the root causes that lead to repeat visits to the emergency room or hospital. You can help these patients get better care. You can become a hotspotter. Use the following resources to better understand hotspotting and what you can do:
