8 OpportunitiesWorking more collaboratively with the Department of Health and key players who play a role in the prevention, care and management of patients we commonly serve.To develop consensus on primary health improvement targets and address allocation of resources.Examining how the system of care - both prevention and public health - can work seamlessly together.Sharing information on high utilizers of care together in order to examine prevention efforts that can minimize their utilization for better health outcomes.Joint Community Health Needs Assessment.Provides local health data and community input into the community benefit planning process.
9 Challenges Assuring representation from key stakeholders and partners. Transition in hospital focus to population health and community benefit.Hospitals have different primary service areas that may or may not overlap and each with their own unique needs.Developing an implementation structure (5 sub-committees) that works and is manageable without being burdensome.The Coalition's focus areas of obesity prevention and co- occurring disorders are complex health issues that will take substantial amounts of resources and time to improve.

73 COOP Quality of Life Assessment Dartmouth COOP (Primary Care Cooperative ) Charts were used to evaluate health-related quality of life. Each chart consists of a simple title, one question, and five response choices. Each possible response is described in words and presented graphically , as a caricature, along a five-point ordinal scale. There are nine scales, each of which are used to measure a different aspect of patient functional status (physical activity, feelings, daily activities, social activities, pain, change in health, overall health, social support, and Quality of Life)
74 National Diabetes Prevention Program Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester Counties received CDC “partial recognition” for NDPPGrant funding used to sponsor “Lifestyle Coach” training conducted by DTTAC , Emory University, in June 201210 Local Health Department Staff from 3 lower shore counties completed the trainingWe’ve completed trainingOne of the requirements for a program to become a CDC “Recognized” provider, is for coaches to complete “Lifestyle Coach” Training provided by Emory University DTTAC Staff.Cost of the training was $13, The price to send a staff to Atlanta, Georgia for training is $1200/per person for training alone (does not include travel or lodging).
75 NDPP Implementation in Tri County Grant Funding will support one full year (16 core sessions and 6 post-core monthly)of the NDPP in each of the 3 Counties.20 individuals will complete the program which will be offered in each of the 3 counties (60 participants total)Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester County Health Departments collaborate to market the program through Local News Media, Tri County PIOs, Websites, Social Media, News Releases, and Local Public Television.[Mimi note the #] The first cohort of 31 participants began 7 weeks ago and already have lost a combined total of 142 pounds.
76 Recognition Leads to Billing and Sustainability All 3 LHDs will pursue “Full Recognition” from the CDC for the National Diabetes Prevention Program requiring data reports every six months for the next 24 months.Full Recognition allows billing and program sustainability as fee for service.The best part of the NDPP is the potential for sustainability as a fee for service prevention program.
