Stakeholder Health – a learning collaborative of over 50 health systems – is a voluntary movement of people working within hospital health systems who see in the current policy environment the opportunity to address the underlying causes of poor health in their communities by strategically shifting existing resources and partnering with diverse stakeholders.
Stakeholder Health is preparing to release their second document, a book entitled, Stakeholder Health: Insights from New Systems of Health (Edited by Teresa Cutts and Jim Cochrane) in June, 2016. The book, developed with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is a rich and detailed review of some of the best practices in the areas of community health improvement, as well as clinical and community partnerships, spanning 11 chapters.
This meeting is an opportunity for health systems in the Midwest to learn about and join the Stakeholder Health movement and to begin to identify opportunities for forward-leaning partnerships that fundamentally improve the health and quality of life in the communities we serve.

Collaboration between Hospitals and Faith Organizations to Improve Community Health
Webinar description from hpoe.org:
View this webinar from Hospitals in Pursuit of Excellence (HPOE) that focuses on two hospital-interfaith collaborations, one in Memphis that has been in existence for nine years and another in Maryland that is in its earliest stages. Since these collaborations have enormous potential for promoting health, especially among at-risk populations, and help avoid unnecessary re-hospitalizations, the potential for creating such collaboratives in different communities across the country will be explored.

Healthcare providers classify medical conditions and procedures using a standard coding system, the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). Public health relies on the receipt of ICD data from healthcare providers to conduct a variety of activities.
With the October 1, 2015 compliance date for ICD-10, every healthcare provider must ensure that they are adequately prepared for the updated ICD-10 codes. Illinois Public Health Association arranged a special ICD-10 training session for local health departments in Illinois. This session was recorded and is available for viewing on our training website, Publichealthlearning.com.
