Clinical TransformationBridging clinical care and community health to improve patient experience, quality of care, and health outcomes
Through the Primary Care Capacity Project, LPHI implemented the first demonstration pilot of the Community Center Health Home concept with five community health centers across the Gulf Coast region.
With expertise from partners, LPHI developed the Emergency Management & Community Resilience: A Capacity Building Toolkit for Health Centers, which aims to integrate emergency management into existing clinic operations & community outreach & supports their timely recovery.
Our Regional Care Collaborative provides the opportunity for healthcare professionals to share information and ideas and network with colleagues to enhance resources and skills.
The Greater New Orleans Health Information Exchange supports local hospitals and outpatient primary and behavioral health providers to get patient information where it needs to be, when it needs to be there.
Through the Primary Care Access and Stabilization Grant, LPHI helped to establish high quality primary care centers in Greater New Orleans post Hurricane Katrina.
Programs and Initiatives
Hurricane Response Hub
The Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI) has been chosen to serve as one of five regional technical assistance centers for the Hurricane Response Hub (HRH) initiative led by the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI). Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this national program is designed to enhance disaster-related surveillance and environmental and occupational health recovery efforts in areas impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria by building disaster-related public health workforce capacity.
Working with a range of state and regional partners, LPHI will serve as the coordinating body within Louisiana, to lead public health workforce capacity building activities in disaster-related surveillance, environmental, and occupational health needs.
