Latest Projects
Currently, City Health Works provides health coaching for diabetes, hypertension, asthma, and congestive heart failure. Additional chronic conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic kidney disease, fall prevention, and co-morbid depression will be added in the coming years. City Health Works is currently involved in multiple evaluations of their service to assess its impact on outcomes and cost. As the recipient of the Janice Nittoli Fellowship, City Health Works is working with the Urban Institute in 2017 to apply its operational learnings to inform policy. Finally, City Health Works is transitioning to an earned revenue model through contracting with public payers and hospitals in the area.
