Lunch & Learn: Accountable Communities of Health

200 South Quad
Friday, October 25th, 2019

Summer Scholar teamSato Ashida (Community and Behavioral Health), Caitlin Ward (Biostatistics), Tessa Heeren (Public Policy Center), and Daniel Sewell (Biostatistics) will present a Lunch and Learn session on Accountable Communities of Health.

In 2016, Iowa adopted a promising healthcare innovation practice by establishing seven Accountable Communities of Health (ACH) sites across the state. Accountable Communities of Health establish multi-sector coalitions to address non-clinical issues that impact health outcomes. Our research uses network analysis to quantify the inter-organizational relationships which facilitate comprehensive care coordination. Factors associated with sustainable ACH sites and policy recommendations are identified.  

Lunch will be provided and served at 11:45. The presentation will begin at noon. If you plan to attend, please contact leslie-gannon@uiowa.edu by September 17, and please note any dietary restrictions.
