Abstract Body: Objectives 1. Describe Hotspotting as a method for intervening with patients who have highly complex needs. 2. Consider approaches for using Values-driven Outcomes Data to identify individuals who may benefit from a Hotspotting intervention. 3. Identify appropriate educational outcomes for interprofessional education (IPE) teams participating in an IPE Hotspotting Immersion. 4. Describe the processes and challenges of creating and implementing IPE Hotspotting teams. 5. Discuss the benefits of successful Hotspotting for patients, health professions students and health care delivery systems. Methods This project uses Interprofessional Education Hotspotting Immersions to drive IPE beyond the focus of direct care and to foster the development of Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (IPEC) within the framework of systems-based practice. Hotspotting is the term used to describe local team-based interventions designed to improve health and health care utilization for individuals and communities with highly complex needs. A team of interprofessional faculty (medicine, social work, nursing, and pharmacy) will present the process, structure and early outcomes of creating and implementing an IPE Hotspotting Immersion with chronically and persistently homeless individuals supported in a Housing First program. Presentation content will include: the use of value-driven health systems data to identify patients, preparing students with a Hotspotting curriculum, navigating legal consent and HIPAA requirements, and working with community organizations. Guided discussion with the audience will be enhanced by the participation of student members from the IPE Hotspotting team. Intended Outcomes Participants will learn about an innovative community-based model for IPE that provides students with opportunities to collaboratively identify and address the drivers of health while seeking to reduce unnecessary health care costs and utilization. Participants will be able to identify the benefits, challenges, and first steps for implementing a similar IPE Hotspotting program within their own educational institutions. Target Audience The target audience for this Small Group Discussion includes: IPE faculty and health professions program directors interested in community-based IPE and academic health centers leaders exploring Hotspotting interventions in their own communities.
