This is an interprofessional team of LSUHSC, Tulane and Xavier health professional students. The team will identify the highest utilizing patients in the greater New Orleans safety net hospital system and engage them in a patient-driven series of interventions targeting the root causes of their high utilization. The team's aim is to reduce the cost of these patients' care through non-medical care delivery methods which focus on care coordination, health literacy, chronic disease management and motivational interviewing.
