Understanding the Value of Multi-Sector Partnerships to Improve Population Health
This presentation reviews recent research concerning multi-sectoral partnerships aimed at improving health status on a population-wide basis, with a particular focus on implementation strategies and on health and economic impact.
While still preliminary and emerging, research indicates that large health benefits are possible through collective actions that engage the medical, public health, and social sectors. Mechanisms for aligning incentives, dividing responsibilities equitably, and measuring progress regularly appear critical to success.
Dr. Glen Mays highlights promising examples from the Hennepin Social Accountable Care Organization, Arkansas Community Connector Program, and Massachusetts Prevention & Wellness Trust Fund.
