Roadmap Phase One: Scope of the Agreement

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?
