Bridging for Health Announces First Four Sites
Bridging for Health: Improving Community Health Through Innovations in Financing, supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is pleased to announce the first four sites selected to participate in this initiative:
- Allegheny County Health Department
- The Bexar County Community Health Collaborative
- Spartanburg’s Way to Wellville
- Yamhill Community Care Organization
The goal of Bridging for Health is to improve population health by rebalancing and aligning investments while fostering linkages among public health, health care, and other sectors. Collaboratives will focus on three main areas:
- Stewardship and collective impact
- Innovations in financing
- Health equity
The Georgia Health Policy Center, as the national coordinating center, will work with these communities to further develop, evaluate, and disseminate innovations in policy, health care delivery, and financing. Each site will be provided with technical assistance, evaluation support, and opportunities for peer learning. Additional resources for convenings, core functions, and/or special projects will also be made available.
In 2015, up to an additional six sites may be chosen to join Bridging for Health. If you think your community is a good fit for this initiative, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
