Community Health Network Report

Community Health Network Report

Springfields Community Health Network Study Objective Objective Describe the network of organizations that has emerged in each Blueprint HSA to support population and individual health, focusing on modes of collaboration and relationships between organizations Background and Key Questions This study is the first step towards answering key questions about the networks that are active in Blueprint communities: What role did investment in core Community Health Teams have in seeding these larger networks? How are the participating organizations connected to each other? How are these relationships maintained and reinforced how durable are they? What characteristics do the most successful networks share? What impact do these networks have on individual and population health?

Network List Development In this Health Service Area (HSA) the methodology began with network bounding that included core health organizations as well as a wide-range of social service organization and community service organization. The network membership list began with the 2013 study list provided by the Blueprint Project Manager, added write-ins from 2013 study responses, and additionally added organizations (if not already represented) from the Unified Community Collaborative. Organization representative contact information was collected from Project Managers and publicly available sources such as organization websites.

Springfield FY14 Springfield FY15 State Avg. FY 14 State Avg. FY 15 Observations and Questions One network neighborhood is made up primarily of Springfield Medical Care Systems (SMCS) departments and practices. It appears this neighborhood is well integrated into the network overall, as both the parent organization SMCS and the SMCS Community Health Team are connected but are part of a different neighborhood and are highly central to the network overall. Springfield is one of the few HSAs that have youth and/or family services in central positions in the network. In Springfield the State of Vermont Department of Children and Families (DCF) is the 2 nd most central organization.

Both information sharing sub-networks include many organizations that are not well-integrated into the network. Each organization creating one or two new connections could transform these networks and improve the flow of communication. Although the full Springfield network includes many organizations, a full 93% of respondents agreed that when our organizations work together, each one has a clear role to play. This is a jump of 28% from the previous survey. Team Based care measures are among the highest in the state!
