Collaborative Partnerships with Public Health Departments to Support Health Promotion and Behavior Change

Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
This session will demonstrate how collaborative partnerships with public health departments has supported health promotion and behavior change. We will present on how Delaware Division of Public Health developed a guide for health practitioners and partners for promoting health equity; the Lake County Health Department and Community Health Center developed partnerships with hospitals that deliver the largest populations of Medicaid infants to provide a system of breastfeeding support from hospital to home, as well as assist in obtaining Baby-Friendly designation; collaborative partners learned to use aggregated High Blood Pressure data to improve population health outcomes by providing feedback to providers and how they made changes to clinic flow policies and procedures to improve diagnosing and treatment of hypertension; how governmental public health can develop effective partnerships and work with Medicaid programs to improve population health through evidence-based interventions; a cross-platform AIDS campaign can share costs for creative development, promotional materials, media placements, and evaluation, as well as offer the scale and sustainability of a national campaign while allowing for the incorporation of locally driven HIV prevention strategies.
Session Objectives: List three ways in which healthcare providers can address the social needs of patients. Describe the impact of a partnership between the local health department and hospital on population health outcomes. Describe the benefits of practice facilitation in making clinical quality improvement changes. List evidence-based interventions that can be implemented through partnerships with governmental public health and Medicaid managed care organizations. Describe how a state/nonprofit partnership can build and strengthen community engagement in health promotion campaigns among highly affected populations and key stakeholders.
