IPCE to Support the Healthcare Transformation Intervention Initiative
IPCE will partner with the UIC Institute for Healthcare Delivery Design, other UIC collaborators, and the Illinois Department of HealthCare and Family Services (HFS) to support its Healthcare Transformation Intervention Initiative. This initiative will make funds available to communities to dramatically transform the delivery of healthcare with the goal of making it more “person-centered, integrated, and equitable.” Recent research by UIC found that this type of transformation is necessary to overcome and reduce significant disparities in health outcomes by race and socio-economic factors in Illinois communities.
IPCE will develop a set of measures of civic infrastructure that can be applied to the five different HFS geographic regions of its Integrated Care Project to account for differences in the local capacity of communities to organize themselves to respond to resource opportunities. IPCE has also conducted a literature review to identify existing efforts to measure civic infrastructure, particularly in the context of community health.
