Community-Clinical Linkages are connections between community and clinical sectors to improve Disease Prevention.
Why Are They Important?
- Help ensure that people with or at high risk for chronic disease have access to community resources and support to prevent, delay, or manage these conditions
- Include interventions such as clinician referral, community delivery, and third-party payment for effective programs
- Increase the likelihood that people with chronic disease such as heart disease are able to follow the doctor's orders and take charge of their health
- Examples of this include community pharmacist interventions and chronic disease self-management
