1305 Epidemiology and Evaluation Collaborative Monthly Call
Wednesday, March 8, 3:00 - 4:00 pm ET Sponsor: NACDD CVH Team
The Epidemiology and Evaluation Collaborative is a peer-led group of epidemiologists and evaluators who come together each month to work smarter and more effectively with 1305 and 1422 epidemiology, surveillance, evaluation and performance measures. States share what they are doing, resources, and questions and provide feedback to CDC. The group is led by Liz Gebhart (NE), Paul Meddaugh (VT), and Brittany Brown (UT). Come see what we are all about! Call-in information: 1-866-707-1092, passcode 4581813#.

Sponsors: The Commonwealth Fund, The John A. Hartford Foundation, the Peterson Center on Healthcare, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and The SCAN Foundation
To improve the health outcomes and daily lives of Americans with the most complex health care needs, five foundations—The Commonwealth Fund, The John A. Hartford Foundation, the Peterson Center on Healthcare, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and The SCAN Foundation—are working together to accelerate health system transformation. This collaborative aims to help health care organizations participating in value-based payment models and adopting evidence-based interventions improve outcomes and lower overall costs of care. As an initial step, they worked with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement to create The Playbook, which highlights the challenges facing adults with complex health and social needs and provides direction on how to meet those needs through a variety of resources that detail care models, policies, and more. Please watch (and share) this short videoabout it.
The Playbook: Better Care for People with Complex Needs identifies promising approaches for treating people with complex health and social needs. Research shows that despite heavy use of health care resources, these patients often feel isolated as they try to manage chronic medical conditions. In addition to functional limitations in their ability to care for themselves, some patients also experience significant social challenges, such as lack of housing, food, and transportation.
Join experts from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, accountable care organizations, and Medicare Advantage plans for an interactive discussion about promising ideas for better care for these patients, who represent just 5 percent of the population, but account for 50 percent of U.S. health care spending.

Call for Applications: Advancing Team-Based Care Through the Use of Collaborative Practice Agreements and Using the Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process to Manage High Blood Pressure
The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD), in coordination with CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, is pleased to announce an opportunity for teams to participate in a program designed to accelerate team-based care to manage high blood pressure, through the use of the Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process (PPCP) and Collaborative Practice Agreements (CPA) resource guides developed by CDC and pharmacy partners.
NACDD and CDC will facilitate a learning collaborative for 4-6 selected teams comprised of state and/or local 1305, 1422, or WISEWOMAN grantees along with a pharmacist association representative. These teams will serve as facilitators-in-training to acquire the information needed to effectively host workshops within their state or city for independent community pharmacists and primary care physician members.
The application and further information is available at this link. The deadline for the application is April 7, 2017.

Community-clinical linkages are defined as connections between community and clinical sectors to improve population health. This document guides public health practitioners on key strategies to implement community-clinical linkages that focus on adults 18 years or older. In addition, this guide presents resources for public health practitioners to use when implementing the strategy and examples of community-clinical linkages. Public health practitioners can use these examples as models for community-clinical linkages in their areas.
The Guide is framed by the following seven strategies:
Learn about community and clinical sectors
Identify and engage key stakeholders from community and clinical sectors
Negotiate and agree on goals and objectives of the linkage
Know which operational structure to implement
Aim to coordinate and manage the linkage
Grow the linkage with sustainability in mind
Evaluate the linkage

Release of the 500 Cities Project Website
The 500 Cities Project is a collaboration between CDC, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the CDC Foundation. The purpose of the 500 Cities Project is to provide city- and census tract-level small area estimates for chronic disease risk factors, health outcomes, and clinical preventive service use for the largest 500 cities in the United States. These small area estimates will allow cities and local health departments to better understand the burden and geographic distribution of health-related variables in their jurisdictions, and assist them in planning public health interventions. Learn more about the 500 Cities Project.
