NACDD Work to Advance Public Health and Primary Care Collaboration

Monday, June 19, 2017   (0 Comments)

NACDD Member, Pama Joiner and NACDD Board Member, Kathy Rocco, along with NACDD staff, and consultants had the unique opportunity to attend the Practical Playbook Meeting in Washington D.C., onMay 31-June 2.

The Practical Playbook is a roadmap for professionals on integrating primary care and public health to achieve population health. The meeting sessions provided a forum for discussion of best practices in cross-sector collaboration with presentations by a wide variety of public health partners, such as the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists, American Planning Association, Public Health Accreditation Board, American Academy of Family Physicians, as well as federal partners such as CDC and HRSA.

Sessions topics included Finding Value in the Value-Based Payment Environment; Approaching and Engaging Potential Partners in Cross-Sector Collaboration; Current Data Tools and How to Use Them; and Strategies for Creating Trust, Breaking Down Walls and Building Bridges across Sectors.

NACDD forged several new partnerships and developed ideas for future collaboration as a result of the meeting. The NACDD thanks Dr. Michener, Practical Playbook editor and principal investigator, and his team for providing NACDD with registration scholarships for this event.
