Aligning Systems for Health: Rapid-Cycle Research Findings from Public Health Solutions
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 Public Health Solutions, which explored:
- What are the barriers and facilitators that affect how colocated social services in safety net hospitals increase access to existing services addressing social needs outside the hospital walls?
- Does implementing such services upon core elements of cross-sector alignment lead to improvement in the quality and follow-up of referrals to social services evolved influenced by these factors?
