Maine’s Homeless Health Information Planning Collaborative
In 2018, HealthInfoNet (HIN) was awarded a planning grant from Data Across Sectors for Health (DASH), an initiative funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. This 6-month pilot initiative called CIC-START (Community Impact Contracts – Strategic, Timely, Actionable, Replicable, Targeted) aims to help local collaborations catalyze their efforts to share and use multi-sector data to improve community health.
HealthInfoNet’s initiative – Maine’s Homeless Health Information Planning Collaborative – will work to build shared knowledge and recommendations for data integration between the homeless service providers and the health care community.
Maine Data Across Sectors for Health (DASH)
In 2016, HealthInfoNet was been selected by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation DASH Program — Data Across Sectors for Health — as one of ten grantees to implement projects that improve health through multi-sector data sharing collaborations. DASH is a national program of RWJF, the nation’s largest philanthropy focused exclusively on health and health care.
As part of this grant, HealthInfoNet collaborated with Community Care Partnership of Maine, an Accountable Care Organization composed of three Critical Access Hospitals, seven Federally Qualified Health Centers, working collaboratively with two Community Action Programs (CAP) in Southern and Northern Maine to guarantee that Maine residents have access to and are receiving the most appropriate community level supports – health and social – that will improve community, social and physical wellness.
The Maine Data Across Sectors for Health (DASH) advanced the participation in and use of the statewide HIE by health and social services agencies and leveraged both medical and social determinant data to produce predictive analytic tools.
