Population Health: From Strategies to Solutions
Improving Population Health Strategies
Thursday, March 7 | 1-2pm Central
Over the last decade, countless communities have done a variety of health needs assessments and created Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIPs) or strategy documents for addressing those needs. Yet, as the years go by, it is rare that significant progress is made in achieving the positive community-level changes laid out in those documents. There seems to be a big gap between creating strategy documents and achieving community-wide solutions to complex population health challenges we face.
This Webinar will explore three keys to moving beyond the typical community strategy documents that sit on the shelf to actually mobilizing a community to solve problems.
Adopting Frameworks around with to organize and align community efforts.
Adopting Processes that engage community stakeholders to work as part of a larger team rather than working independently.
Adopting Technologies that can greatly enhance information management and streamline collaboration
Participants will learn about practical tools and techniques that can be adopted as part of transitioning from creating strategy documents to creating dynamic approaches that build community teamwork and enhance efforts to address chronic disease, behavioral health, social determinants of health, and more.
Participants will also gain access to a new Population Health Learning Collaborative where they will be able to access resources, case studies, training materials and other tools to help educate and engage their community stakeholders.
