While many cross-jurisdictional sharing (CJS) arrangements involve only the participating health departments, sometimes a third party can play a vital role in supporting health departments’ efforts to share services. The speakers in this webinar described two different models through which health departments enhanced their efficiency and effectiveness due to the work of a third party. The first model is based in western Massachusetts and the second model is based in northern Michigan.
