Many organizations in the Moving Health Care Upstream network are actively working through the challenges and considerations of cross-sector data sharing. With these organizations in mind, we are dedicating this blog post to a spotlight on the All In: Data for Community Health Network. Read on to learn how you can connect with, and learn from, other cross-sector partnerships via this vibrant, highly valuable network.
Sharing Data Across Sectors to Transform Community Health
All In: Data for Community Health is a learning network of 100+ communities across the U.S. that are testing exciting new ways to systematically improve community health outcomes through multi-sector partnerships working to share data. Much like Moving Health Care Upstream (MHCU), All In is part of a growing movement to tackle the upstream causes of poor health by strengthening connections between health care and other sectors such as housing, social services, and education.
All In was founded on the idea that we can accelerate progress towards addressing social determinants of health if fellow “innovators” and “upstreamists” share and learn from each other’s failures and successes. If you’re facing data sharing challenges in your community and could use extra guidance and support, All In can connect you to the right tools, resources, and expertise to help advance your effort.
