Supporting efficiency, effectiveness, and equity for public health services across boundaries

The PHAB Center for Innovation helps public health departments and systems collaborate and share across boundaries, with the common goal of encouraging better health and equity in the communities they serve.

What is Service and Resource Sharing?

Service and resource sharing among health departments is when insights, expertise, techniques, and tools are shared across organizational boundaries.

Why Share?

Sharing empowers public health departments to work together to protect and promote the health of the people they serve. By sharing insights, expertise, techniques, and tools, public health departments can accomplish more than they could do alone. Ultimately, this enables a reduction in inefficiencies and ensures services are delivered to citizens that need them most. PHAB has countless success stories on how public health entities have collaborated to enact sharing agreements that improved health outcomes.
