NEW Interactive TEAM UP Data Dashboard

TEAM UP has added a second interactive data dashboard with aggregated, de-identified data from Cohort 2 sites. Click here to view both dashboards and interact with the data by manipulating the date range to view change over time in:

  • No. of In-Person and Telehealth Behavioral Health (BH) and Well Child Visits (WCVs)
  • Percentage of School Age Kids (Ages 5-12) and Adolescent Kids (Ages 13-18) With a Positive Pediatric Symptom Checklist (PSC) Screen
  • Percentage of Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) Screens with At Least One Need

Medical visits are rarely straightforward. Add factors such as poverty, chronic stress, complex medical issues, functional impairment, and barriers to material needs, and caring for one’s well-being becomes exponentially more layered and challenging. A community health worker is a human service worker who supports individuals and families in navigating systems, advocating for their needs, and building relationships that foster social-emotional well-being.
