Grant to a USA agency, non-profit, or business to work with communities to increase use of technology in health management. A webinar will be held February 26. March 2 is the optional deadline to submit a letter of intent. The awardee will identify up to ten communities with which to work towards advancing population health management approaches through the improved use of health IT within and across local, regional, and state settings.
Specifically, this opportunity is designed to address health challenges at the population level through a community-based collaborative approach. The CHP Program helps address the national priority of better care, smarter spending, and healthier people. Achieving this goal requires a strong, flexible health IT ecosystem that can support transparency and decision-making through enhancing the use of data, reducing redundancy, and informing payment reform, all of which will help transform care delivery.
The goal of the CHP Program is to identify data solutions, accelerate local progress, and disseminate local learning to other communities through the development of shared learning resources around population health challenges.
During the initial phase of the program, the awardee will release a call for applications to identify and select up to ten (10) communities across the care management continuum to participate in the Community Health Peer Learning Program. During the following twelve to eighteen months, selected communities will complete a peer learning program to achieve the following:
• Develop and begin the implementation of an impactful, measurable, and actionable community work plan to improve the use of health information through data aggregation, data portability, and data analysis on a self-identified population health challenge.
• Access and cultivate cross-community partnerships around population health challenges through peer learning, subject matter expert (SME) guidance, stakeholder engagement, and development and dissemination of key resources highlighting best practices, case studies, and scalable strategies to assist with implementing the actionable community work plan.
