Robina Foundation Care Guide Project

  • With the support of a grant from the Robina Foundation, we tested a new approach to primary care: using care guides to help patients stay on track with their care plans and manage their health.

    The project used care guides to help patients stay on track with their care plans and manage their health.

  • Care guides after the Robina Project

    Allina Health continues to develop, adapt, and evaluate the care guide role across the health system. Some of the areas where care guides are used include: care management, primary care, diabetes education, and rehabilitation services.

  • Care Copilot Institute

    Transforming care delivery through the use of lay health care workers.

    Founded due to the compelling results of the Robina Care Guide Project, the Care Copilot Institute supports the development, implementation, and evaluation of care guides within Allina Health.

    We envision a day when lay health care workers are a customary part of healthcare delivery; viewed by providers as indispensable team members that contribute to better care; appreciated by patients and communities for the persistent personal connections they enable; and supported by payers, employers and policy makers for delivering value.
