The Act on Data Improving Chronic Disease Coordination Systems Thinking Learning Tool Project

To assist states in their efforts to better coordinate their work, the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors Diabetes Council Act on Data work group created, with state member input, learning tools that use a systems thinking framework to help chronic disease program staff and partners “get on the same page.”

Using the Improving Chronic Disease Coordination Learning Tool, states and partners can quickly and effectively…
• Build a shared picture of chronic disease at a population health level
• Anticipate the impacts of various intervention strategies
• Distinguish between low and high leverage interventions
• Collectively develop a strategy and action plan that has the buy-in needed for implementation
