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.
Join the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from August 20-23, 2018 for the next Public Health Informatics Conference, Connecting Systems and People to Improve Population Health. The conference provides a premier venue for groundbreaking discussions and opportunities to address the science of public health informatics, evolving public health systems, and public health’s role in our Nation’s expanding health information technology infrastructure.

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.
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.
