The Center Releases Documents Related to Local Health Department Shared Services in Cooperation with OSU
The Center, working in cooperation with Ohio State's Center for Public Health Practice (OSU-CPHP), has released two documents related to shared services among local health departments (LHDs). The first is a bibliography of peer-reviewed and professional literature related to LHD shared services and consolidations in Ohio and elsewhere. It was constructed in order to provide local health officials with easy access to a variety of information sources that may prove helpful to those seeking to learn more about collaboration and consolidation among LHDs.
In addition to the bibliography, the Center performed an environmental scan of the information sources collected and produced a brief report that takes stock of what has been learned about shared services among LHDs in Ohio and other areas of the country.
