What services and capacities would be shared?
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, HR, IT)
- 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?
