    Empowering Quality Health Programs and Strategies Informed by Data and Effective Health Communication

    The effectiveness of health programs is greatly enhanced through its integration with data-driven approaches. Evidence-based interventions and successful collaborations hinge on robust data systems that enable informed decision-making and continuous quality improvement. Communicating on these programs requires a strong understanding of the population accessing these programs, multiple modes of communication and tailored approaches. Proposals for sessions in this track will focus on approaches for using information to effectively inform, tailor, manage and communicate on health programs. These approaches would include data collection, data sharing, program evaluation, quality improvement, communicating needs and engaging program participants.

    We encourage session proposals that will highlight:

    • Use of storytelling and public narrative to catalyze action
    • Capturing patient voices to inform care and health programs
    • Specific tools and evidence-based practices used to assess organizational capacity to implement effective health communication and measure impact of health communication
    • Promising practices, lessons learned, and indicators of progress for sharing data and information, particularly in multi-institutional and multi-sector partnerships
    • Effective, and efficient approaches to unlocking the power of data for decision-making, evaluation, and quality improvement
    • Innovative approaches to leverage technology and data to enhance advancements in healthcare
    • Use of disaggregated data and person-centered communication to address health disparities and inclusion
