Would there be benefit from financial data harmonization through the practice organizations in order to have a more direct comparison of financial data?
Which methods of measuring value and population health outcomes are feasible, predict outcomes, and impact health?
How are public health funding structures (e.g., governmental, community-level, etc.) understood?
How should data from other health systems (e.g., hospitals, federally qualified health centers) be gathered and incorporated into the broader public health system?
What natural experiments are needed to correlate funding mechanisms and system structures with health outcomes longitudinally and across states?
What metrics do other fields (e.g., port authorities, education, public safety) use to measure outcomes?
How are broad categorical areas of public health (e.g., environmental health, maternal and child health) funded? How are public health essential services funded? How do decisions about funding these areas impact other areas?
How do public health systems funding patterns vary by the type of local public health systems framework as defined by state or local infrastructure (i.e., laws and regulations)?
How can financing mechanisms be broadened beyond governmental sources?
How much resource shifting could occur if existing or new partnerships are leveraged?
What are entrepreneurships’ contributions to financing public health systems?
