‘From clinic to community’

Share this:

 

A JAMA report, “Population Health Case Reports: From Clinic to Community,” describes collaborations between healthcare organizations and public-health departments and community organizations. In an era characterized by much stronger efforts to coordinate healthcare, it’s well worth reading.

The authors write:

“Like a winning lottery ticket, the productive alignment of medical services with public health has been long desired but infrequently experienced.¬†Recently, however, the evolution of healthcare payment may be tilting the odds in favor of initiatives that cross from the clinic to the community.¬†As Accountable Care Organizations, medical homes and hospitals under global budgets begin to accept financial risk for the health of large populations of patients, there is new momentum for the development of collaborations that aim to reduce preventable illness.”
