TCN California Learning Collaborative

In partnership with the California Health Care Foundation and The California Wellness Foundation, Transitions Clinic Network (TCN) is accepting applications from primary care clinics in the Central Valley and Inland Empire interested in implementing the TCN model of care through our California Learning Collaborative. Up five sites will be selected to participate in this year-long learning collaborative to improve the health and reentry outcomes of individuals with chronic health conditions transitioning from incarceration. Selected sites will receive a year of structured technical assistance and training as well as up to $61,750 to support participation and program implementation.

The TCN program is an evidenced-based model of care that reduces ED visits, hospitalizations and parole and probation violations for patients transitioning from incarceration. This model aligns with CalAIM’s Enhanced Care Management benefit. This is a unique opportunity for clinics to play a role in not just improving patients’ health, but improving communities’ health by fostering healthy reintegration and reducing recidivism.

Please review our Learning Collaborative Overview for more details about the program. You can also join us for an informational webinar on Tuesday, March 1, 12-1pm. Please register for the webinar here.

Application Process

To apply, sites must submit a brief written application, site assessment, letter of support from a clinic administrator, and budget (see links below). Sites are also expected to participate in a one-on-one informational interview prior to selection. Applications are due Monday, March 21, at 5pm.
