About the Community Health Partnership

Please note that the Johns Hopkins Community Health Partnership (J-CHiP) is no longer accepting patients and has transitioned beyond the award. Johns Hopkins remains committed to leveraging the important work and learnings of J-CHiP across the delivery system through future programs to improve care coordination.

Johns Hopkins Community Health Partnership (J-CHiP) focuses on people who need coordinated health care but often don’t get it, resulting in more illness, more complications and unnecessary hospital stays and emergency room visits.

By concentrating on the needs of adults who most need care, especially those with chronic conditions, substance dependency or mental illness, and adult patients discharged from The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, the Community Health Partnership hopes to help them receive the care they need to improve their health and maintain it.

An Integrated Approach to Health Care

The Partnership is based on an integrated approach by health care teams that include nurse educators, nurse transition guides, physicians, case managers, clinical pharmacy specialists, health behavior specialists and community health workers, among others.

These teams help patients get the care they need, in the place they need it, whether that’s at home, at a community health center, in a rehabilitation facility or in the hospital. Integrating care also means that each member of the team will have a better understanding of each patient and can personalize the care to his or her needs.

Since the Community Health Partnership began in 2012, more than 71,700 people have been enrolled, and more than 2,000 patients have a community health worker to help coordinate their care.
