2018 Innovation Cafe: Strategies for Improving Children's Health

What: This forum engaged health system champions in peer-to-peer learning and networking to spread innovation with the aim of improving children's health (prenatal to age 17). A special emphasis was placed on CCO early childhood incentive measures and cross-sector collaboration. CCO and clinic staff, cross-sector partners and other health system champions presented projects, discussed learnings and shared best practices in cross-sector innovations and health system transformation. Sharing took place in cafe-style rounds and through plenary sessions.

Pediatrician and 2015-2016 Oregon Health Authority Transformation Center Clinical Innovation Fellow R.J. Gillespie provided the keynote plenary. He presented on the impacts of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and social determinants on child health and wellness; his clinical research in screening for parents' ACEs in pediatric settings; and a vision for preventing the lifelong effects of ACEs through partnerships across sectors.

When: June 12, 2018, 8 a.m.-4 p.m.

Where: Salem Convention Center

Innovation Cafe contacts: Tom Cogswell, Adrienne Mullock, Liz Stuart
