For the last couple of years my team and I have proudly worked along side the team from the Practical Playbook to promote improvements in population health by facilitating collaboration between provider organizations and public health organizations. It has been an incredibly rewarding experience. This year we’ll be holding our second annual National Meeting. I hope you’ll join me at the 2017 Practical Playbook National Meeting Improving Population Health: Collaborative Strategies That Work, Wednesday, May 31 through Friday, June 2, 2017, at the Westin Washington, D.C. City Center.
This second annual meeting provides a forum for national dialogue on best practices for cross-sector collaborations, while rising to meet the challenges of the changing healthcare landscape.
Participants from across the nation, representing public health, primary care, community organizations addressing social determinants of health, and other sectors, will attend to network and share their experiences. Based on my experience at last year’s National Meeting, this year’s event will be timely, stimulating, thought provoking and a great opportunity for networking with peers.
The meeting will explore the following themes:
- Understanding and Leveraging Current & Emerging Policy and Funding Trends
- Best Practices for Data Collection and Use
- Strategies for Collaboration and Implementation
- Building Momentum in Uncertain Times
- Taking Local Action to Generate Scalable Results
