5116.0 Partnerships, Alliances and Performance Measures

Wednesday, November 7, 2007: 12:30 PM
This workshop will describe and discuss collaborative organizational models including organizational features such as interpersonal communication, alignment of public health and healthcare strategies, and data sharing across components of the systems. The session will also focus on the results of the performance of local public health systems field-tested by the National Public Health Performance Program. The instrument used focused on public health systems that have undertaken partnerships with community and other stakeholders to identify affecting relationships and how they influence the performance of public health systems. Further discussions will describe the hospital Balanced ScoreCard and its evolution, and the need for inclusion of hospital performance pertaining to community health status. The session will also discuss advantages and disadvantages of partnerships between public health agencies and private sector organizations when one party to the partnership essentially “holds the purse strings.” What are the “win-win” principles that both organizations can adopt?
Session Objectives: Participants should be able to: Analyze healthcare system models of organizational and programmatic integration. Describe how public health systems can or cannot increase participation of the wider community. Recognize the internal focus of the hospital Balanced ScoreCard and the lack of community health status measures. Develop a mutually beneficial partnership that meets the financial and other resource needs of the public health agency, and the philanthropic mission and business goals of the private organization.
