Colorado: Regional Health connectors

About this project: The Colorado Regional Health Connectors (RHCs) program is developing a new workforce in Colorado. Regional Health Connectors connect primary care practices and local resources to ensure communities have systems that enable residents to be healthy both in and outside of the clinic setting. RHCs will strengthen connections between clinical care and community organizations; coordinate activities to reduce gaps in the health system; and integrate clinical and community-based strategies to address local health care priorities.
RHC Evaluation. The RHC program contracted with the Visible Network Labs to conduct a Social Network Analysis on the networks that have been developed through the RHC program in each of the 21 regions. This project focused on the following questions: • What organizations are part the RHC network, and how are they working together? • What are the benefits and challenges of working with the RHC to build a stronger network? • How does the nature of the network change with the RHC intervention? • To what extent does the RHC contribute to network change and system evolution?

About this project. Just five years after the 1990 publication of the first KIDS COUNT Data Book, a nationwide KIDS COUNT Network had been established, guided by a member-led revolving steering committee. Funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, this 53-member network is comprised of organizations from every state, as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Over the past 20 years, the Casey Foundation has invested in the Network’s leadership, capacity for advocacy and organizational health, resulting in a network of partners in each state that are helping lawmakers, public agencies, and nonprofits understand the nation’s changing demographic profile to encourage more effective programs and policies. Methods. This report provides the findings of a study conducted by the Center on Network Science between September and November of 2016, utilizing PARTNER to conduct an organizational network analysis methodology to collect data from the Network members on various aspects of the Network. This study provides a data-informed evidence base about the successes and challenges of the KIDS COUNT Network, and methods for how this initiative might grow and strengthen strategically within an ever-changing landscape.
