Assessing the role of state and local public health in outreach and enrollment for expanded coverage : a case study on West Virginia by Malcolm V Williams( )

17 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1,985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) laid the groundwork for a substantial increase in the number of people who have access to health insurance through Medicaid expansion or health insurance marketplaces. This report summarizes seven case studies — Eagle, Garfield, and Pitkin counties, Colorado; Tacoma-Pierce County, Washington; New Orleans, Louisiana; Boston, Massachusetts; West Virginia; Houston, Texas; and Illinois — that leverage local health department (LHD) efforts in ACA outreach and enrollment to facilitate knowledge transfer to other geographic regions. Potential LHD roles include serving as a coordinator for community activities, being a trusted source of health care information for consumers, and leveraging relationships with community partners to increase capacity for outreach and enrollment. Also, the case studies provide guidance and insight into the current role of LHDs, and help redefine that role in the future, as statescontinue to enroll residents in health insurance coverage
How effective is correctional education, and where do we go from here? : the results of a comprehensive evaluation by Lois M Davis( )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 2 million adults are incarcerated in U.S. prisons, and each year more than 700,000 leave federal and state prisons and return to communities. Unfortunately, within three years, 40 percent will be reincarcerated. One reason for this is that ex-offenders lack the knowledge, training, and skills to support a successful return to communities. Trying to reduce such high recidivism rates is partly why states devote resources to educating and training individuals in prison. This raises the question of how effective -- and cost-effective -- correctional education is: an even more salient question given the funding environment states face from the 2008 recession and its continuing aftermath. With funding from the Second Chance Act of 2007, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice, asked RAND to help answer this question as part of a comprehensive examination of the current state of correctional education for incarcerated adults and juveniles. The RAND team conducted a systematic review of correctional education programs for incarcerated adults and juveniles. This included a meta-analysis on correctional education's effects on recidivism and postrelease employment outcomes for incarcerated adults, as well as a synthesis of evidence on programs for juveniles. The study also included a nationwide survey of state correctional education directors to understand how correctional education is provided today and the recession's impact. The authors also compared the direct costs of correctional education with those of reincarceration to put the recidivism findings into a broader context

Building community resilience to disasters : a way forward to enhance national health security by Anita Chandra( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Community resilience, or the sustained ability of a community to withstand and recover from adversity has become a key policy issue at federal, state, and local levels, including in the National Health Security Strategy. Because resources are limited in the wake of an emergency, it is increasingly recognized that resilience is critical to a community's ability to reduce long recovery periods after an emergency. This report provides a roadmap for federal, state, and local leaders who are developing plans to enhance community resilience for health security threats and describes options for building community resilience in key areas. Based on findings from a literature review and a series of community and regional focus groups, the authors provide a definition of community resilience in the context of national health security and a set of eight levers and five core components for building resilience. They then describe suggested activities that communities are pursuing and may want to strengthen for community resilience, and they identify challenges to implementation
Source materials for healthy communities toolkit : a resource guide for community and faith-based organizations by Joie D Acosta( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Community and faith-based organizations (CFBOs) play a critical role in promoting health and improving access to healthcare across the nation. In 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was enacted, in part, to expand access to preventive care. Several of the law's titles offer new opportunities for CFBOs to expand their community health workforce, to access funding for preventive services and programs promoting healthy lifestyles and overall physical and mental health, and to strengthen partnerships with state/local governments and other actors in the health system, such as hospitals and health clinics. This brief report provides content for a toolkit that will summarize the provisions of the Affordable Care Act for a CFBO audience, with particular attention to ways the Act will improve care for underserved or hard to reach populations

Assessing the role of state and local public health in outreach and enrollment for expanded coverage : a case study on Tacoma-Pierce County, Washington by Nazleen Bharmal( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) laid the groundwork for a substantial increase in the number of people who have access to health insurance through Medicaid expansion or health insurance marketplaces. During the first open-enrollment season, states used a variety of strategies to reach out to and enroll newly eligible people. Typically, they used federal and state funding to develop navigator programs. Program design differed by location, and, although many stakeholders were involved in these efforts, state and local health departments (LHDs) were, and remain, a relatively untapped resource. This report is one in a series designed to highlight innovative models and best practices that leverage LHD involvement in ACA outreach and enrollment and to facilitate knowledge transfer to other geographic regions looking to leverage the full range of roles for LHDs in ACA outreach and enrollment. Each case study was designed to capture nuanced differences in how health departments support these efforts in their communities, identify facilitators and barriers to these approaches, and develop lessons learned from these activities. These reports identify compelling models for how state and local health departments can implement similar activities in their own communities. Further, they provide guidance and insight into the role LHDs can play now, and help redefine that role in the future, as states continue to enroll residents in health insurance coverage moving forward. This report focuses on a case study on Tacoma-Pierce County, Washington

The role of urban congregations in addressing HIV( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

With their extensive social reach and influence across diverse communities, faith-based organizations have an exceptional opportunity to help address human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) worldwide. But in these efforts, many congregations face constraints, including limited size and resources, as well as competing social needs and ministries. Until recently, the roles that faith-based organizations might play have not been clearly defined. In a series of studies conducted over eight years, RAND researchers sought to better understand the capacity of urban congregations for HIV prevention and care, specifically in the areas of stigma reduction and HIV testing. The research was conducted collaboratively with community-based partners, including faith and public health leaders. It had three main phases: (1) research to understand the roles that congregations have played throughout the various stages of the HIV epidemic; (2) development of a multi-component, church-based program to address HIV stigma and promote HIV testing in African American and Latino churches; and (3) an evaluation to assess how the program worked in real-world settings. This research brief outlines the studies' findings, including that the intervention reduced HIV stigma and mistrust in the participating Latino churches and increased HIV testing across African American and Latino congregations
