Creating an Integrated Child Health System Using a Population Health Perspective
The Pew Charitable Trusts, 901 E Street NW, Washington, DC
Population health is a phrase that is becoming widely used among public health officials, health care providers, researchers, policymakers, and grantmakers. At its core is a focus on building sustainable linkages among health care systems, public health agencies, and the larger community to prevent the onset of chronic disease and improve health outcomes.
During this meeting of grantmakers and other stakeholders, we applied a population health framework to children's health and addressed the question: What would an integrated child health system look like? We focused on innovative practices and policies and catalytic roles that grantmakers can play.
This meeting was made possible with support from Nemours.
