Aligning Systems for Health: Rapid-Cycle Research Findings from Akron Children’s Hospital/Kent State University
Aligning Systems for Health, supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and led by the Georgia Health Policy Center, awarded 10 rapid-cycle research grants to explore specific aspects of the Framework for Aligning Sectors.
This is a summary of findings from Akron Children’s Hospital/Kent State University, which explored:
- Do existing national Pathways Community HUB (PCH) certification standards require or encourage aligning across sectors, as measured by the core components of shared purpose, data and measurement, finances, and governance?
- How do community organizations using the PCH model perceive the process and impact of aligning on the ground?
- What factors influence on-the-ground aligning across sectors?
