Center Launches Two New State Pages: Minnesota and New York

The Center is pleased to announce the launch of two new state pages on cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS): Minnesota and New York.
 
Given that CJS implementation models vary based on state and local characteristics, we have developed these pages as part a state-by-state data repository describing CJS initiatives across the nation. The pages about Colorado, Kansas and Ohio that we previously published have received positive feedback–you should check them out. Watch for pages about other states to be launched soon. 
 
If you know of any local health departments or community health centers that collaborate in any way, you can help us by taking this short survey. The collaboration can be formal or informal, such as simply sharing services. 

 

To further highlight CJS arrangements in New York and Minnesota, we have published two new Case Reports.  

 

Minnesota’s PartnerSHIP 4 Health
PartnerSHIP 4 Health is a community health board that governs the four local health departments serving Becker, Clay, Otter Tail and Wilkin Counties in Minnesota. Since its establishment, PartnerSHIP 4 Health has undertaken a four-county community health improvement planning process, developed sequential strategic plans, implemented a branding strategy and now shares four programs among all departments. Read the Center’s new CJS Case Report to learn more.
 

New York’s Genesee and Orleans Counties
Two health departments in rural New York implemented a plan to share a director and deputy director. Additional sharing has developed between the health departments in Genesee and Orleans Counties over time, resulting in enhanced quality of services and reduced costs. Read the Center’s CJS Case Report to learn more.
