The Community Health Peer Learning (CHP) Program aims to advance progress toward population health improvements through the expanded capture, sharing, and use of electronic health data from diverse sectors. Engaging ten Participant Communities and five Subject Matter Expert (SME) communities in a peer learning collaborative, the CHP Program builds community capacity and supports the identification of data solutions, acceleration of local progress, and dissemination of best practices and lessons learned.
The CHP Program encourages demonstrations of how linking critical information within and outside of health care can address population health challenges ranging from pediatric asthma to housing insecurity; reveal key themes and challenges; and offer technical assistance in areas such as data governance, community engagement, systems infrastructure, and sustainability. Taken together, these community-based efforts also will help to inform national strategy and align with other delivery system reform efforts driving toward better care, smarter spending, and healthier people.
In support of these efforts, CHP co-founded a learning collaborative called All In: Data for Community Health. All In helps communities across the country build capacity to address the social determinants of health through multi-sector data sharing collaborations. The video below explains why and how communities across the U.S. are joining forces to support and accelerate data-driven, community-led, and cross-sector collaboration.
