Innovation and Quality in Public Health

February 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

How can public health better position itself and its work as innovative in an environment where public health and healthcare are moving closer together? How do public health organizations assume a vital role as the community chief health strategist, bringing together diverse community players to make meaningful progress on community health issues? Join the Public Health Foundation on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 from 2-3pm EST to explore how one local health department is moving its community forward to improved population health. Grounded in a culture of continuous quality improvement, the Oklahoma City-County Health Department (OCCHD) has embraced the community chief health strategist concept, embodying performance improvement in public health. Gary Cox, JD, Executive Director of OCCHD, will share how taking on this role and thinking more holistically about health is having an impact for their community and how work focused on quality improvement, performance management, and workforce development is helping to move innovation forward in public health.
