Bridging Public Health and Managed Care: A Collaborative Approach to Community Health Assessments

In the United States, public health and health care delivery have largely taken different and siloed approaches, with health care focused on the treatment of individuals and public health centered on the total population within a geographic region. As interventions that address health-related social needs to improve outcomes have become more prevalent, however, a strong case is emerging for more convergence between traditional health care delivery and public health’s focus on the “upstream” factors that affect health. Collaboration between the sectors is essential to advancing both health outcomes and equity—a lesson driven home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a new webinar, Manatt Health will provide an in-depth look at the innovative ways California health agencies are working together to bridge the gap between public health and managed care health care delivery—and what other states can learn from the California model.
