All In Webinar: Empowering Cross-sector Data Sharing to Improve Health and Public Safety
Jul 25 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

The large population of individuals with mental illness in the nation’s criminal justice system, and their risk of recidivism, is an ongoing public health challenge. Communities are leveraging partnerships between public health, mental health, and law enforcement agencies to share data across sectors and develop strategies that drive population health solutions. In this webinar, Lori Carnahan of the DuPage County Health Department (IL) will discuss how the innovative Post-Crisis Response Teams are decreasing recidivism, increasing effective linkages to care, and improving coding of crime reports, while Dawn Wiest of the Camden Coalition (NJ) will share how Camden ARISE integrates police department data with health information to determine interventions that reduce hospital readmissions, arrests, and recidivism.

Aug 22 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Growing recognition of the importance of social determinants of health leads to growing realization of the challenges of identifying and describing social needs in an actionable way.  Measuring social needs properly has implications for people’s health and their community well-being, as well as in developing an understanding of what works to address those needs. In this webinar, Caroline Fichtenberg of the Social Interventions Research and Evaluation Network will take a look at the current landscape of screening tools and outcomes measures, while Karis Grounds of 2-1-1 San Diego will demonstrate the methodology and framework of their Risk Rating Scale, which is helping them better serve their clients while showing the impact of their services over time.
