Webinar: Population Health through Improved Infectious Disease Prevention and Management: The Interface of Public Health and Health Care Training Navigation

March 1, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Monday, March 20, 2017    12-1:30pm EST  •  Webinar

Training Description
This webinar will introduce the audience to the national dialogue about public health and healthcare system integration.

For the last several years, there has been an ongoing national dialogue about the need for improved coordination and integration between public health and the healthcare delivery system. With improved collaboration between these two entities, expectations are that population health objectives can be more effectively met, quality of care and services can be refined, and costs could decrease. In recent years, infectious diseases have been at the forefront of the public health portfolio and have helped demonstrate the significant need to strengthen the collaboration between public health and healthcare.

Learning Objectives
By the end of the webinar will be able to:

  • Review vignettes that allow them to highlight and identify the need for integration
  • Define the regional differences in outcomes and inputs, specifically as they relate to infectious diseases and how they affect patient care and population health
  • Describe the national framework for integration of public health and primary care
  • Discuss their experiences and expectations around the integration of public health and primary care related to infectious diseases
