Measuring Community Health Improvement Implementation New09/03/2013

In this time of limited resources, it is becoming increasingly important that we are able to demonstrate the impact of our work. Of equal importance is documenting the processes we collectively take toward achieving this impact. IPLAN requires that health departments include measureable outcome and impact objectives for each health priority selected in their Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIP). Because impact and outcome objectives often take a substantial amount of time and resources to show results, process measures can help provide accountability and ensure that implementation plans are on track to meet goals. This webinar discusses how health departments can monitor progress and measure results in a meaningful way by developing good impact and outcome measures to document success, and process measures to track achievements along the way. The training covers tools such as logic models that can facilitate development of a strong plan as well as a good monitoring and evaluation process. Participants will learn how to integrate these tools and processes throughout Community Health Improvement Planning and Implementation. The training explores how documenting, understanding, and demonstrating achievements can result in a more robust CHIP and better equip community health improvement planners to measure and achieve success in the implementation phase.

Partnering for CHNA and IPLAN New08/02/2013

According to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, Section 501(r) (3) requires non-profit hospitals to conduct a CHNA at least once every three years and adopt an implementation strategy to meet the community health needs identified through the CHNA. The CHNA must take into account input from persons who represent the broad interests of the community served by the hospital facility, including those with special knowledge of or expertise in public health.

Likewise, certified local health departments in Illinois are required to conduct a community health assessment and community health improvement plan, or IPLAN, every 5 years. Local health departments in Illinois have a long history of inviting hospitals to sit at the table during this assessment and planning process to contribute data, analyze issues and provide input into selecting priorities and strategies to address health problems and issues.

During this session, participants will explore the common requirements, differences, opportunities for partnership and potential barriers for partnership and how to overcome them. The webinar will focus on exploring the partnership development process including essentials for successful partnerships, guidance for developing a shared mission, vision and values to guide the CHNA/IPLAN, defining a shared community and formalizing partnership agreements. We will hear from a community that has formed successful partnerships to lead the community health assessment and planning activities resulting in collaborative implementation.

Moving From Stakeholder Engagement To Ownership And Accountability 06/29/2010 Updated 07/02/2010

Public health is, by its very nature, community-driven. Even the best media campaigns and evidence-based practices will fail in the absence of community stakeholder support. We have learned and embraced the importance of engaging stakeholders and partners in our work. Despite this knowledge, we sometimes fall short of making the most of those key partnerships. Whether you are trying to move from "warm bodies at the table" and verbal commitments of support to meaningful engagement and agreement or even meaningful engagement to action and accountability, this session will help you assess the effectiveness of your coalitions and committees and develop a plan to move forward. This session is presented by Kim McCoy, BA, MS, MPH, a Community Health Planner at the Minnesota Department of Health.

Adapting Evidence-Based Programs to Meet Local Needs Updated 05/17/2010

As we strive to meet program outcomes as efficiently and effectively as possible, we turn to evidence-based models and programs. While the recipe, or the evidence-based model, may have proven results in one community-how do we know we can produce the same results in our local community? How do we identify the essential ingredients when we are trying to adapt a model to suit local cultural needs?" In this workshop, presenters will define "evidence-based" and differentiate the commonly interchanged terminology associated with evidence-based. Presenters will also share resources on where to find and how to select evidence-based programs and strategies for various population-based public health issues. In addition, program fidelity and identifying and addressing cultural needs will be explored in order to understand how to balance both. Finally, presenters will share how important process data can be to ensure the program is on track for producing intended outcomes.. Presenters include Mark Edgar, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Public Health at the University of Illinois at Springfield (UIS), and Laurie Call, BA, Director of the Illinois Public Health Institute Center for Community Capacity Development.

Public Health Quality Improvement Webinars 10/23/2009

These webinars are part of the Multi-State Learning Collaborative: Lead States in Public Health Quality Improvement grant in Illinois. Eleven Illinois local health departments are participating in one of two Mini-Learning Collaboratives led by the Illinois Public Health Institute Center for Community Capacity Development.

Each TAG has a monthly Technical Assistance webinar that is recorded and posted here for viewing by any local health department or community health partner who is interested in learning more about QI or the focus area. Webinars are recorded monthly and focus on either QI tools (presented by a nationally recognized QI expert) or the specific TAG focus: Community Health Improvement Planning (CHIP), or Preventable Risk Factors for Chronic Disease (CD).

Successful Worksite Wellness to Reduce Risk Factors for Chronic Disease (Web Conference) 5/11/2009

When it comes to worksite wellness, yesterday’s assumption was that health is a cost driver. Initiatives to improve employee health were primarily a strategy for controlling a top-line expense. Today’s reality has taught us that health is a performance driver. Investing in health not only controls expenses, but also protects, supports, and enhances human capital. Worksite wellness is not only a public health issue but is fundamental to an employer’s healthier bottom line. In this session we will discuss the many attractive benefits to employers for successful worksite wellness. Presenters are Robert J. Keller, Director, McLean County (IL) Health Department and Debra Siena, Vice President, Proactive Partners.
