Recognized for Collaborative Care

Creighton University and its aca­demic health partner, CHI Health, were honored with one of three national awards distinguishing insti­tu­tions committed to and pro­moting a collab­orative care model.

The Nexus Award, given annually by the National Center for Inter­pro­fes­sional Practice and Education, recog­nizes the efforts of higher educa­tional institutions, health care systems, clinics and community organ­i­­zations in “linking health pro­fes­­sions education and inter­professional practice to transform care delivery, improve health outcomes, and decrease costs.” Creighton and CHI Health earned one of two honorable mention distinctions for the award.
