Access to Care

  • The Commonwealth recently announced (click here to access the press release) the selection of a vendor for the Resource Information and Services Enterprise – or RISE PA – the upcoming statewide resource and referral tool. When fully implemented, anyone in Pennsylvania will be able to access this tool from their personal computers, tablets, and mobile devices to find information about services and resources, and self-refer to participating social services agencies. RISE PA will also allow service providers to assess the needs of individuals during a physician’s office or emergency department visit, when receiving case management services, or seeking assistance from a community organization, among others. Providers may refer their clients to agencies and be notified of the outcome of their referrals through the system. Most importantly, this is a person-centered, no-wrong-door approach. RISE PA will allow participating providers from local non-profits, health care organizations, local government and faith-based organizations to work together and coordinate care, making it easier for families and individuals to access the help they need.

    Please join Sec. Miller, and other DHS and Commonwealth officials for an informational webinar. We will share the vision for RISE PA, and how you may become involved.

    Webinars are regional and require registration. Please sign up for the webinar designated for your county.

    Please help us spread the word by sharing this invitation with your contacts!
