It is the hope of the Collective Impact for High Public Service Utilizers Project Coalition that other agencies might learn from our experiences, and consider integrating peer-led services into existing services. Through Coalition building, a needs assessment, and pilot services, the Collective Impact Project targeted the unmet needs of individuals at risk for or who already have chronic illnesses. We have successfully demonstrated that peer specialists trained and employed as Peer Navigators are able to help close the healthcare gap for some of the hardest-to-reach individuals. As an innovative initiative, project details and lessons learned will benefit other agencies interested in implementing similar services.
