Topic Tracks

Moving Beyond Walls: From Clinical to Community
In order to succeed at population health management, hospitals and health care systems must connect clinical outcomes with people’s daily lives and work within a culture of innovation, community collaboration and shared ownership. Presentations in this track explore the journey of hospitals and health care systems as they implement new care models and design approaches to connect the medical and psychosocial needs of their populations.

Equitable Health for All: Addressing Social Determinants
We know that the social determinants of health have a greater impact on health outcomes than clinical care. As such, addressing the social determinants of health is necessary to successfully improve the health status of our most vulnerable populations. This track's presentations will demonstrate multi-sector strategies to address health disparities and explore how a focus on the social determinants of health can impact health equity.

Evidence to Action to Results: Using Data to Improve Health

Hospitals and public health departments are striving to make their community health needs assessments and implementation strategies more meaningful, actionable and effective by leveraging data, developing robust partnerships and engaging individuals in their communities. This track will focus on best practices in CHNAs, implementation strategies and evaluation.

Sustainable Collaborations: Models for Success
Collaborations among multi-sector stakeholders are necessary to develop healthy communities but often difficult to assemble, execute and sustain. Presentations in this track will share stories of exemplary partnerships that highlight the characteristics of and lessons learned from robust and effective collaborations.

Place Matters: The Role of Community Development

Health status is profoundly influenced by the places where people live, work and play. Accordingly, to improve the health of a community, resources must be devoted to promoting safer neighborhoods, stable and affordable housing, environmentally sound communities and economic self-sufficiency. This track will feature innovative examples of how community development contributes to improving population health.

Plan to be Prepared: Community Resilience and Workforce Development

A community’s ability to prepare for and respond to change is bolstered by the coordinated efforts of health care systems, public health organizations, and other health and social service providers. Sessions in this track will address two types of preparedness: 1) response to crises, both natural and man-made and 2) development of a workforce that is trained and prepared for population health.
