Improving Population and Clinical Health with Integrated Services and Decision Support

Improving Population and Clinical Health with Integrated Services and Decision Support

Project Summary

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 and diverse challenges are divided among systems that often fail to work collaboratively because of misalignment between their respective delivery of services, strategy, and financing. To identify strategies for addressing this misalignment by partnering with informatics, public health, and sociology researchers, the principal investigators are examining Federally Qualified Health Centers services to:

  • determine the impact of integrated service delivery on health outcomes in a safety-net population;
  • determine the impact of community, population, and public health advanced analytics in identifying and linking patients to needed integrated services; and
  • identify the benefits.

Principal Investigators

  • Paul K. Halverson, DrPH, Professor and Founding Dean, School of Public Health, Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis
  • Joshua R. Vest, PhD, Associate Professor, Health Policy and Management, School of Public Health, Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis

Methodology

The research team is using retrospective longitudinal analyses, modeling, qualitative research methods, and a pragmatic cluster randomized controlled trial to test strategies for integrating the delivery of medical, public health, and social services.
