Innovative Models to Pay for Community Prevention (Webinar)
March 6, 2013 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

How can we pay for efforts that make people healthier, instead of just treating them when they get sick? How are innovators across the country systematically shifting health resources to emphasize prevention? Prevention Institute invites you to join us for a webinar on March 6th, 2013 from 11:00am – 12:30pm PST (2:00pm – 3:30pm EST) that will answer these questions and explore exciting new approaches from across the country to secure dedicated, sustainable funding for community prevention efforts.

The webinar will include four presenters discussing the models profiled in our recently released brief, How Can We Pay for a Healthy Population?: Innovative New Ways to Redirect Funds to Community Prevention:

  • Janine Janosky, Head of the Center for Community Health Improvement at Austen BioInnovations, will discuss the potential in forming Accountable Care Communities, like the one currently being developed in Summit County, Ohio, to fund prevention, improve health outcomes, and capture health care savings.
  • Rick Brush, Founder and CEO of Collective Health, will explain the concept of Health Impact Bonds and how they allow investors to invest in promising prevention interventions.
  • Kevin Barnett, Senior Investigator at the Public Health Institute, will reveal how hospital community benefit dollars can be directed towards improving the conditions, and ultimately population health outcomes, of the communities in which hospitals are located.
  • Maddie Ribble, Director of Policy and Communications at the Massachusetts Public Health Association, will describe the concept of a Wellness Trust and explain how the groundbreaking Massachusetts Prevention and Wellness Trust will dedicate millions to prevention efforts in the state.
