What? / Phase One / Roadmap

What services and capacities would be shared?

Issues related to this question should be addressed in Phase One of the Roadmap to Develop Cross-Jurisdictional Sharing Initiatives.

Examples of issues to consider:

  • What are the public health services currently offered by each jurisdiction?
    • What are the CJS agreements currently in place? What can we learn from them?
    • What are the service gaps to fill?
    • What could be considered for sharing?
        • Functions (e.g., billing, human resources, information technology)
        • Programs (e.g., WIC, environmental health)
        • Capacity (e.g., epidemiology, lab)
    • What issues should NOT be considered because of lack of support? What are the boundaries of this initiative that should not be trespassed?

 
Resources to help answer these questions can be found below the line.

The resources are part of the Center’s CJS Resource Library, which contains best practices, lessons learned and tools that can help jurisdictions considering or adopting cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS) arrangements. While most tools and resources in the library primarily focus on public health CJS, some address public sector CJS more broadly.
