This month, we're featuring two projects that are integrating data from multiple sectors to improve the health and well-being of high-need populations.
CHP: Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI)
Through its participation in the CHP Program, LPHI will use health information technology to share management and coordinate care among Crescent City Participant Community (CCPC) entities, aggregating data from electronic health records, proprietary and public community-level records, public health information, and the Greater New Orleans Health Information Exchange. CCPC aims to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of care coordination and access to services for approximately 400 people suffering from behavioral and mental health conditions to improve their health and reduce the costs of their care.
DASH: King County Data Across Sectors for Housing and Health
Through DASH, Public Health - Seattle & King County is partnering with local housing authorities to link housing data with Medicaid claims records. The result is de-identified data that can provide key information about the health issues facing residents. This information can then be used to develop prevention programs, such as the use of community health workers, to address specific health needs of the resident community. This approach is part of King County's Accountable Community of Health, a regional partnership committed to working in new ways to improve health and health care.
