The Population Health Center at Delmarva offers community partners – agencies, providers, schools and more – services and support to help them achieve excellence in population health.
With health care reform there is a need for different strategies to achieve the Triple Aim of decreasing costs, increasing quality, and improving patient experience.
IOM report released March 2012 recognized that public health and primary care are so far apart that we may need a third entity to bridge the gap between the two sectors of health; Delmarva Foundation is a bridge between the public and private health sectors.
Delmarva Foundation’s Population Health Center hosted more than 150 visitors from 41 states and four foreign countries at their booth at the annual American Public Health Association in New Orleans, Louisiana on November 16-19, 2014.
Delmarva showcased its Population Health Center’s BestCare Connector and Resource Access Card (RAC) services and forged new relationships with public health leaders across the country.
Barb Levin, Medical Director for the Population Health Center said, “Delmarva Foundation has developed several innovative products designed to assess the health and health resources of a community and identify potential solutions using state-of-the art data analytics and customized interventions. We were pleased to roll these out at APHA to make some important first contacts.”
