Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has worked over the past year, in collaboration with the RAND Corporation, to develop a Framework and set of Measures that support a national strategy and movement to Build a Culture of Health. One research question drove the development of a framework and set of 41 national measures: "What is holding our nation back from the health and health equity that we aspire to?" As a nation we are not addressing the interdependence of the many social, economic, physical, environmental, and spiritual factors of health and well-being. Measures that motivate achieving equity in health and well-being outcomes across the nation are the principle objectives of RWJF and other researchers. Panelist will present the new COH framework measures and related work on developing national metrics that support new levels of focused multisectoral partnerships, reconfiguration of service delivery systems, and deeper community engagement to improve health
Session Objectives: Describe the new RWJF Culture of Health Framework and measures and closely related activities across the nation to develop and harmonize metrics for health and health care progress.
