Join us at this session
Assessing Community Capacity to Advance Population Health Through Multi-Sector Collaboration and Data Sharing
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.
While the importance of data in our collective efforts to improve community health is widely agreed upon, the way in which we leverage and apply data is not. The newest report from the BUILD Health Challenge features the five most common data challenges faced by cross-sector teams participating in BUILD—as well as reflections and solutions from the practitioners involved. In this webinar, learn about top takeaways from the report and hear what strategies teams use in the face of real-world challenges, including:
- HIPAA concerns
- Logistics of data sharing across a wide array of data systems
- Language differences between partners
- Lack of experience with data
- Finding methods or metrics to evaluate the intervention
Susan Millea of Children’s Optimal Health (TX), and Kim Foreman of Environmental Health Watch (OH) will share their experiences and how they worked with their collaboration partners to tackle these barriers.
Sharing Data Across Sectors to Improve the Health of Communities
This pre-conference workshop, co-produced by DASH and the Network for Public Health Law, will assist participants in navigating the legal framework to collect, use, and share data among multiple sectors to improve health, while complying with legal requirements and maintaining the public’s trust.
