Update from Five Communities
In January 2017, AcademyHealth and the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement convened five multi-sector teams led by regional health improvement collaboratives (RHICs) and content experts to inform next steps in the teams’ specific community-based collaborative projects. This issue brief describes progress over the course of the year.
In the year since AcademyHealth and NRHI held their January meeting in Austin, Texas, participating regional collaboratives’ efforts are helping providers and social service organizations work together to address the priority health needs of their communities, and establish the infrastructure needed to move towards value-based payment models.
This brief details activities in key areas that influence the conditions and collaborations necessary to support non-clinical community-wide population health services, including cross-sector collaboration; metrics, data and evidence; care delivery requirements and incentives; and payment and financing.
