The 2019 All In National Meeting is pleased to announce that the call for abstracts is now open! This year’s meeting is designed to lift up the hard-won knowledge and practical lessons from pioneering local data sharing initiatives to accelerate our progress toward improved health equity for all.
The 2019 National Inventory of Data Sharing Collaborations for Health is a nationwide survey conducted by Data Across Sectors for Health (DASH) on behalf of All In: Data for Community Health. We’re gathering insights from stakeholders across the country to inform a national analysis of community partnerships that are sharing data across sectors to drive population health improvement. The results will highlight opportunities to advance a common agenda that can help support and expand this crucial work.

I recently had a request to share info about health information exchanges that are working on the social determinants of health and related projects on All In, and compiled this list for that request. When I also posted it for the All In online community, one of the readers said “Whoa this list is awesome,” so we’re sharing it here.
Data Across Sectors for Health (DASH) is pleased to announce two funding opportunities intended to help local collaborations advance their efforts to share and use multi-sector data to improve community health. Register for upcoming informational webinars to learn more!
How can health care organizations measure patients’ social needs in a way that allows the data to be actionable? This is a question that many communities are grappling with as they strive towards “whole person care models” that consider a range of needs beyond health care—from housing to food insecurity to intimate partner violence and beyond.
The All In National Meeting brought together 250 stakeholders from around the country that are at the forefront of the movement to improve community health and whole-person wellness through multi-sector partnerships working to share data. Read a summary of the meeting with commentary from attendees on Twitter!
The large number of individuals with mental illness in the nation’s criminal justice system, and their risk of recidivism, is an ongoing public health challenge. Many communities are leveraging partnerships between public health, mental health, and law enforcement agencies to share data across sectors to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and incarceration for those with complex health and social needs.
Data Across Sectors for Health (DASH) is pleased to announce a new funding opportunity for advanced multi-sector community health initiatives. The DASH Mentor Program recognizes high achievement in multi-sector data sharing and seeks to amplify and replicate successful local efforts. Awardees will receive funding to serve as “Mentors” for the All In: Data for Community Health network, spreading their knowledge and supporting peers while continuing to advance their own work.

Imagine a world where doctors, public health officials, police officers, social workers, and other community stakeholders were all sharing their data in an effort to improve the health of the people they serve.
With the shift toward value-based payment and population health improvement, the core data assets and services that health information exchanges (HIEs) have cultivated are in greater demand and can be leveraged effectively by sectors other than health care to improve health outcomes. These sectors, such as public health, human services, and housing, are both driving and supporting HIEs to share data with a wider set of partners and integrate additional data sources beyond those from health care.
