2024 Conference Tracks

To realize our theme of bridging data and doing over the course of our three days together, the following tracks have been designed to further shape our programming. All presentations, breakouts, and workshops will fall within these three areas of focus. These topics and priorities are core to the work of Civitas members across the national network.

1. Interoperability, national networks, standards, and technology – this track will explore how we further health data interoperability, compare local, regional, and state exchange to that of national networks while examining the broader ecosystem and opportunities for greater alignment, deep dive into implementation and use of standards, and highlight new uses of technology such as AI.

2. Promising partnerships – this track aims to highlight key partnerships advancing health data utilities, health equity, population health, quality improvement, and value-based care. Sessions will highlight collaboration between APCDs, CBOs, HIEs, health-data organizations, RHICs, and QIOs. The emphasis will be on the outcomes resulting from data-led and multi-stakeholder partnerships.

3. Community-centric approaches to addressing unmet health related social needs (HRSN) – With increased attention on improving individual’s health, particularly those from underserved populations, this track will examine improved care coordination efforts and how we are expanding care well beyond health care settings. The sessions will further discussions about implementing community care hubs, leveraging community health workers, SDOH data sharing, close-loop referrals, and important policies and practices driving progress.
