Integrative Activities: What Are They & What Value Do They Bring to Population Health Networks?
Integrative Activities are the governance, oversight, and administrative functions that enable population health networks to carry out tasks and strategies related to the network’s shared population health goals. Like an engine, integrative activities propel networks forward.
Over the last two years, Nemours has been exploring the ways integrative activities can be used to strengthen population health networks. This has included revisiting the framework of integrative activities Nemours presented in 2012 and understanding the value of strategic use of integrative activities.
