For the last year my firm has worked with the team from A Practical Playbook to build awareness around the understanding that population health improvement needs to be driven by collaboration between primary care and public health. The separation of primary care and public health in the United States has been damaging and self-perpetuating. Given all that we need to achieve within the healthcare arena, we cannot keep working in silos; there is so much to be gained from collaboration. Here’s a link to the Storify of a recent #HCLDR Twitter Chat on the subject that was moderated by Brian Castrucci, one of The Practical Playbook editors.

The big news is that The Practical Playbook – until now primarily an online resource – is now available as book, in paper or electronic form. The Practical Playbook offers professionals in primary care and public health a roadmap to integrating their work with the larger goals of population health.

Comprising case studies, practical recommendations, data resources, and commentaries from national leaders on both sides, The Practical Playbook is the new benchmark for primary care and public health practitioners working to improve population health. The book gives clear guidance to clinicians on how to find and work effectively with community partners, and advice to public health practitioners on how to find the key leaders and work effectively with clinical groups.
