The IMPACT WV Consortium, coordinated by the WVU Center for Excellence in Disabilities, aims to promote the physical, emotional, cognitive, social and behavioral well-being of families through a two-generational+, evidence-based approach. The activities provided by patient navigators and other collaborative partners do not represent a new curriculum or additional tasks for care teams to complete. Instead, it builds upon the service structure that exists and attempts to strengthen this structure by sharing information, reducing duplication, identifying ways to coordinate care, and connecting to missing services. The Consortium is composed of a multidisciplinary team of individuals, with experience programming, monitoring, and coordinating services, who have worked together in the past five years to strengthen high risk families and improve children’s health outcomes.

Collaborative Partners

Collaborative partners will be engaged as members from Child-Welfare, Obstetrics/Gynocology, State Medicaid Agency, Criminal Justice, or Primary Care sectors and be committed to the RCORP-NAS project. The IMPACT WV program is partnering with CASA, Inc., WVU Medicine Children’s, and Preston Memorial Hospital Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) program to develop the collaborative extending their existing services by offering patient navigators and interdisciplinary transition teams to support women and families in eight counties in the northern region of the state with the highest NAS rates.
