  • What is a Medical-Legal Partnership | MLP-Illinois

    WHAT IS A MEDICAL-LEGAL PARTNERSHIP? Addressing Health-Harming Legal Needs & Reinforcing the Commitment to Health Equity A Medical-Legal Partnership (MLP) is the integration of medical and legal professionals who work together to improve patient experiences and outcomes. In a Medical-Legal Partnership, medical providers and legal aid lawyers work to address the various medical and legal health needs of patients. ASOCIACIONES MÉDICO-LEGALES HOY En la actualidad, el Centro Nacional de Asociaciones Médico-Legales (NCMLP) guía "los esfuerzos de educación, investigación y asistencia técnica" para ayudar a las organizaciones de salud a aprovechar los servicios legales civiles disponibles. Actualmente, las asociaciones médico-legales operan en 46 estados y contando. En 2016, 75,000 pacientes con problemas legales que dañaban su salud recibieron ayuda de asociaciones médico-legales en su estado. En 2016, se capacitó a 11,000 profesionales de la salud para reconocer y evaluar a los pacientes en busca de necesidades legales perjudiciales para la salud. En una encuesta de 2016 realizada por NCMLP, de organizaciones de atención médica que informaron los beneficios de los servicios MLP: 86% informó mejores resultados de salud para los pacientes 64% informó un mejor cumplimiento del paciente con el tratamiento médico El 38% informó una capacidad mejorada para desempeñarse "en la parte superior de su licencia" ( Centro Nacional de Asociaciones Médico-Legales ) HISTORIA DE ASOCIACIONES MÉDICO-LEGALES El primer caso registrado de una asociación médico-legal formada ocurrió en 1993 entre Boston Medical Center (BMC) y Greater Boston Legal Services. Boston Medical Center vio constantemente casos en los que los pacientes pediátricos con asma regresaban repetidamente al hospital. Al investigar la causa, el equipo de BMC descubrió que el problema subyacente involucraba edificios de apartamentos enmohecidos y propietarios que se negaban a cumplir con los códigos sanitarios. BMC se comunicó con los Servicios Legales de Greater Boston para obtener ayuda para resolver este problema legal. Avance rápido hasta 2001 , se produjo un movimiento de base de asociaciones médico-legales debido a un artículo del New York Times sobre la asociación de BMC. A medida que aumentaba el número de asociaciones médico-legales, surgió la necesidad de un esfuerzo coordinado de recursos. Para llenar este vacío, en 2006 se fundó el Centro Nacional de Asociaciones Médico-Legales (NCMLP) .

  • Impact of Medical-Legal Partnerships | MLP-Illinois

    IMPACTO DE LAS ASOCIACIONES MÉDICO-LEGALES Ayudando a la comunidad resolviendo problemas sistémicos Las asociaciones médico-legales en todo el país han tenido un gran impacto y han mejorado la salud y el bienestar de muchos. The Problem: Erie Family Health Centers in Chicago repeatedly saw patients with lead poisoning & were prevented from moving and still maintaining federal housing assistance. ​ The Action: Erie Family Health's Medical-Legal Partnership with Loyola University School of Law and LAF Chicago built a multi-state coalition and petitioned the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to update its federal lead regulations. ​ The Resolution: After petitioning and engaging Congress members, the proposed lead regulation changes were enforced successfully in January 2017. Currently, “The Lead Safe Housing for Kids Act of 2019”,a proposed bi-partisan bill, would require lead hazard risk assessments and controls in all federally assisted housing. ​ (National Center for Medical-Legal Partnerships) Read More Here Keeping Children Safe From Lead Poisoning ©2022 by MLP-Illinois.
