Public-Private Partnership Discussion Group Forum: All NAQC Members Invited!
Thursday, December 5, 2013
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
Over the past two years, over a dozen states have participated in the NAQC Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Initiative. The Initiative provides technical assistance and resources to states interested in advancing quitline cost-sharing partnerships with private and public insurers. Initially, states conferenced monthly to share successes, problem solve-challenges and lend support to each other as they were learning about the health insurance industry. Recently, the monthly calls have morphed into quarterly topic-specific discussions. If you are interested in learning more about different aspects of forming public-private partnerships, you are invited to join the Discussion Groups calls. The format of the discussions are informal and offer participants and opportunity to have in-depth discussions about specific aspects of the work.
The next PPP Discussion Group call is scheduled forThursday, December 19 at 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. (MT). This quarter’s call will focus on states’ successes and challenges of building internal support for public-private partnership efforts and contracting with experts in the field, dedicating FTE or utilizing interns to help advance the work. The discussion will kick-off with Arizona, Colorado, Florida and North Carolina sharing their experiences followed by other Initiative states sharing their experiences.
Please RSVP for the call here and make sure to visit the Public-Private Partnership page for more details closer to the call.
