Supporting Public Health with a Network Science Approach

Many popular community health improvement frameworks use a systems approach to address upstream determinants of health like housing, food security, transportation, and financial equity. Working with partners in these domains, one traditionally considered beyond the realm of public health, is now a cornerstone of collaborative community health programming. We use network science tools and methodologies to help public health leaders visualize their networks, demonstrate shared impact, and create data-driven strategies for quality improvement in the future.

We know that social needs like housing and transportation impact community health and well-being. PARTNER CPRM provides complete visibility into the local public health ecosystem in your community.

By mapping and tracking the quality and structure of connections between community partners in your network, you can find opportunities and strategize to shift the system towards more equitable and healthy outcomes. Our team of public health and network science experts is here to provide additional expertise, capacity building, and support for those who need us.

Create a data-driven for managing your community partner relationships

Public health professionals are nearly all expected to build and manage cross-sector partnerships to achieve shared goals. However, there is a lack of tools available to provide real-time data to guide your partnership-building strategy. We use our network science expertise and tools like social network analysis to visualize networks and relationships, demonstrate impact and identify ways to strengthen your network to achieve better outcomes.

How we work with the public health sector

Public health professionals are nearly all expected to build and manage cross-sector partnerships to achieve shared goals. However, there is a lack of tools available to provide real-time data to guide your partnership-building strategy. We use our network science expertise and tools like social network analysis to visualize networks and relationships, demonstrate impact and identify ways to strengthen your network to achieve better outcomes.

Dozens of departments have used our tool while implementing Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnership (MAPP) – a framework developed by NACCHO. The Partnership Assessment specifically is complemented by social network analysis methods and insights unique to our approach and tools.

Many organizations use our PARTNER CPRM during the assessment and strategic planning steps of the community health improvement process. We can support your efforts in a variety of ways, drawing from our experience in public and population health, the social determinants of health, systems thinking, community-led innovation, and network science.

Increasingly, our tools are helping organizations manage their community partnerships across their divisions and departments to adopt a holistic strategy for their collaboration. With our software and support, you can start centralizing your partner relational data and make it accessible to your entire team and key partners in the community.
