Who is participating in All In?
All In is a diverse and growing learning collaborative that includes 100+ multi-sector community collaborations across the country, many of which have a data sharing component. These collaborations are current and past awardees of All In partners. The learning network is also open to other communities that are not funded by All In partners. These communities are actively engaged in developing their multi-sector collaborative governance, planning for or building data systems, or developing interventions based on shared data. Although All In collaborations are working with a variety of different sectors, data types, and health goals, they are all working to improve community health and share one of more of the following common attributes: 1) community-based collaboration, 2) a multi-sector approach, 3) data sharing and integrated data systems.
My collaboration is not yet sharing data. Can I still join?
Anyone can join All In – regardless of their stage of collaboration or data sharing. Members of All In are at various stages of the process, ranging from those who are actively engaged in planning, building, or using shared data systems to those that are just exploring the field of multi-sector data sharing, but are not yet working collaboratively on a common strategic initiative.
How can I connect with one of the projects shown on the All In map?
