This is a webinar series on preventive medicine and public health issues. The presentations provide an overview of HRSA and CDC strategies to integrate public health into primary health care at the national level, and examples of successful strategies carried out by preventive medicine faculty, residents, and HRSAs Bureau of Health Workforce.

This session provides an overview of the CDC 6-18 Initiative. - a collaboration that accelerates evidence into action by targeting six common and costly health conditions - tobacco use, high blood pressure, healthcare-associated infections, asthma, unintended pregnancies, and diabetes - and, initially, 18 proven specific interventions that formed the starting point of discussions with purchasers, payers, and providers. The number of interventions may fluctuate over time. The overview is complemented with an example from the field on school asthma care coordination.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is partnering with health care purchasers, payers, and providers to improve health and control health care costs. CDC provides these partners with rigorous evidence about high-burden health conditions and associated interventions to inform their decisions to have the greatest health and cost impact. This initiative offers proven interventions that prevent chronic and infectious diseases by increasing their coverage, access, utilization and quality. Additionally, it aligns evidence-based preventive practices with emerging value-based payment and delivery models. The goals of the collaboration with purchasers, payers, and providers are to identify shared goals and interests that improve health and reduce costs, monitor shared progress to better understand impact and develop a common language across the public health and health care landscape that leads to healthier communities.

By the end of this session learners will be able to:
1. Identify resources for evidence-based public health interventions
2. Understand the term population health and what such an approach means to the future of health care in the U.S.
3. Identify facilitators and barriers to implementation of selected interventions.
