The PARTNER Platform uses data to change the way we build networks.
Adding Method to the Madness
Hear what our clients & partners are saying
VNL is an amazing team of professionals who are actively building tools, like PARTNER, that we need to measure collaboration, networks, and more. They think outside of the box, and they are an innovative partner when it comes to trying to define and measure those things that are innately challenging.
- “There’s very little data about what it takes to create effective cross-sector collaboration. What VNL does with network science and data provides real insight into what empowers multi-sector collaboration and networks to advance health in communities around the country and world.”
- VNL and their PARTNER network data have been critical components to support County Health Rankings & Roadmaps in analyzing existing networks around the country. VNL provided important training on network science concepts, network mapping and analysis, and SDoH resource allocation within networks. We were able to align health rankings data with VNL’s analysis of inter-organizational relationships and partnerships to identify gaps for targeted outreach.
We have worked with VNL over the past five years, and utilized PARTNER to assess the collaborative function of community-based quality improvement learning teams. PARTNER allowed us to assess how we work together for health improvement planning and identify how we can target our efforts to optimize capacity development. The application for measuring outcomes is especially helpful in documenting the value of our work, particularly since they can be modified to meet the specific needs of the collaborative. Dr. Varda’s team is accessible and responsive to our unique education and application needs. It is a pleasure to work with Dr. Varda and her team.

Our organization used the PARTNER tool in two ways: first, to assess the level of confidence and trust community partners had for the health department, and second, to assist us in developing our strategic plan. Assessing the quality of our partnerships with other agencies and our performance level were essential in order to move forward with our vision of a developing a healthier community. Learning what our partners thought we did well in addition to what needed improvement and expansion is invaluable to our strategic planning process. Dr. Varda understood the unique needs of our organization and was able to assist us in tailoring the tool to fit our needs. The PARTNER tool was easy to use and rendered understandable, viable results
