Racial Equity in Philanthropy Fund Evaluation

Racial Equity in Philanthropy Fund Evaluation

Racial Equity in Philanthropy Fund Evaluation

Centers:

MPHI is the evaluator of The Racial Equity in Philanthropy (REP) Fund, a collaborative effort of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Ford Foundation, and Rockefeller Brothers Fund and builds on each institution’s efforts in the philanthropic sector. REP Fund is premised on the belief that advancing racial equity and reflecting the diversity of U.S. society as a value is necessary to philanthropic sector effectiveness. While there have been attempts over the years to meaningfully address racial equity in philanthropy, there is still progress to be made in increasing racial diversity in leadership positions and resources directed at explicitly ending structural racism. The REP Fund’s vision is to promote grantmaking strategies that prioritize structural change and ending racial disparities as the norm in philanthropy. We believe that a more nuanced approach to philanthropy that responds to the specific needs of communities will more directly close gaps in opportunity, achievement, and resources for people of color and ultimately improve living conditions for all people.

Michigan Childhood Lead Poisoning Surveillance System (MICLPS)

Michigan Childhood Lead Poisoning Surveillance System (MICLPS)

Michigan Childhood Lead Poisoning Surveillance System (MICLPS)

Centers:

MPHI and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) worked collaboratively to design and build Michigan Childhood Lead Poisoning Surveillance System (MICLPS), a web-based lab management application.  The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program receives blood lead lab results from hundreds of clinical laboratories and portable analyzers within the State of Michigan, as well as several national labs.  Some labs are sent in an HL7 format, which are then entered directly into the application, and other labs are sent electronically via a template, and imported into the MICLPS application manually by MDHHS staff.  Once the lab results are imported into MICLPS, each record undergoes validation to ensure that all pertinent lab data is present, and address verification to ensure the patient’s address data is accurate.  Once the lab result has been validated for accuracy, and marked as ‘Done’, the lab results of all levels are then reported out to the local health departments and other entities.  The full data set is also sent to the State Data Warehouse, and imported into CDC’s HHLPSS lab processing application. The MICLPS application is integrated with the State of Michigan single sign-on process, and is hosted at the State of Michigan.  MPHI and MDHHS continue to work collaboratively to support and enhance the application.

State Innovation Model (SIM)

Centers:

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has entered into a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to reform multi-payer health care payment and delivery systems in Michigan. The Michigan SIM initiative is seeking to achieve better care coordination, lower costs, and improved health outcomes for Medicaid beneficiaries across the state. Core components to SIM include support quality improvement and cost savings in qualified Patient Centered Medical Homes (PCMHS), supporting the development of Community Health Innovation Regions (CHIR) to support partnerships across health and community sectors to address Social Determinants of Health, promoting Alternative Payment Models (APM) to align medical reimbursement with health outcomes instead of services rendered. MPHI supported the state during the extensive stakeholder engagement and planning phase for SIM in 2013. Currently, MPHI is supporting the implementation of SIM through coaching, CMS reporting, and the coordination of the state-led evaluation.
