Online LibraryHDA has a wide variety of documents related to programs & services for children and medical-legal collaborations in our online Materials Library.
Here are some of the valuable resources you'll find there:
HDA TIPS (formerly known as TAP TIPS) are a public benefits resource guide for case managers, social workers, and healthcare professionals to use in answering questions that they or their clients have about the specific programs and services available to them. This pocket advocacy guide was updated in September, 2008.
The 2007 Children's Health Policy Report describes the recent health care expansions for children in Illinois and explains HDA's role in furthering those expansions. In particular, the Chicago Medical-Legal Partnership for Children (CMLPC) has played a key role in identifying systemic barriers to health care coverage for Illinois' children.
This presentation offers the medical provider's perspective on the effectiveness and efficiency of medical-legal collaborations.
