Improving Population and Clinical Health with Integrated Services and Decision Support (Research-

Overview

Population and individual health are significantly influenced by social determinants that range from individuals’ knowledge and behaviors to community-level characteristics, resources, and conditions. The expertise and infrastructure to address these multiple challenges are divided among systems that often fail to work collaboratively because of misalignment between their delivery of services, strategy, and financing. To identify strategies for addressing this misalignment, this study partners with informatics, public health, and sociology researchers and examines Federally Qualified Health Centers services to determine health impacts in a safety-net population. Progress in assessing the impact of integrated service delivery and patient linkages to needed services will be presented.
