In October 2009, authors, staff and guest experts from the Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health (MATCH) project and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the project’s funder, met in Madison, Wisconsin to discuss metrics, incentives and partnerships for population health improvement. Their essays were published in this and the previous two issues of Preventing Chronic Disease (http://www.cdc.gov/pcd/issues/2010/jul/toc.htm and http://www.cdc.gov/pcd/issues/2010/sep/toc.htm). The plenary and small group discussions were provocative and wide ranging.
The purpose of this commentary is to: 1) summarize key themes from the essays and meeting discussion; and 2) present recommendations for future practice and research regarding metrics, incentives and partnerships to improve population health.
This essay is part of a special supplement of Preventing Chronic Disease: Public Health Research, Practice, and Policy.
