Community Health Action Teams

Your client will receive a full complement of care and assistance if they work with CHAT. CHAT includes a medical expert and a mental health expert as well as a community health worker. As a result, once you refer your patient to CHAT, the team will counsel them in three interrelated goals: pursuing further medical care, following up on behavioral health services, and finding resources related to other needs, such as employment, housing and much more.

Additionally, Elevate Health, which administers CHAT, serves as a locus for transforming health care and collecting health data in Pierce County. By founding programs like CHAT and tracking individuals’ progress, Elevate Health is able to track whether interventions — especially for vulnerable people — save and improve lives. By working with CHAT, you not only provide your client with a team approach to health, but you also help us reduce health inequities in Pierce County.
