 On Your Behalf

2019 Peer-to-Peer Exchange: Using Data and Quality Improvement to Improve Health Equity in Autism Care
Over 60 attendees from nine states participated, either in-person or virtually, in the 2019 SPHARC Peer-to-Peer Exchange in Madison, Wisc., on April 16-17. The exchange, facilitated by AMCHP staff members Paige Bussanich, Anna Corona, and Maura Leahy, aimed to increase knowledge about and resources for using data and quality improvement (QI) to advance health equity. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) state autism grantees – both current (Delaware, Rhode Island, Washington, and Wisconsin) and former (Georgia, Maryland, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and Ohio) – learned more about Wisconsin's work focusing on disparities through the Wisconsin Care Integration Initiative (WiCII) and three regional Engaged Community Quality Improvement (ECQuIP) sites in the state.

Activities included:

  • Small group breakout sessions that allowed participants the opportunity to learn more about what other states are doing around ASD/DD related to using data, engaging communities, and QI
  • A peer-led panel on engaging people most impacted by inequity
  • Action planning in state teams

The current grantees participated in an additional half-day meeting of the Community of Learners after the Peer-to-Peer Exchange that focused on sustainability strategies and other grant-related activities using implementation support checklists. Leticia Manning and Debra Wagler, the grant's project officers from HRSA, participated in-person and virtually in the meeting. AMCHP staff Paige Bussanich, Anna Corona, Maura Leahy, and Shanel Tage helped coordinate and plan the meeting.

A final highlight of the 2019 Peer-to-Peer Exchange was graphic facilitation by Brittany Curry of InkyBrittany. Click here to learn more about this year's Peer-to-Peer, including presentations, state posters, and pictures of the graphic facilitation.

2019 Convergence Telehealth Summit
AMCHP Autism Community of Learners supported 10 Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) state autism grantee team members from Delaware, Washington, and Wisconsin to attend the Mid-Atlantic Telehealth Resource Center's 2019 Convergence Telehealth Summit on March 31 – April 2. At the summit, the Washington state team members presented their poster "Creating Connections: Addressing the Needs of Children and Youth with Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities Using Telehealth." The Wisconsin state team members presented their poster "Improving Access to Autism Evaluation and Intervention Through Telehealth." Wisconsin and Washington submitted a presentation pitch to describe their respective telehealth activities highlighted in their virtual poster. (Click to view Washington's and Wisconsin's poster pitches.) AMCHP staff Paige Bussanich and Shanel Tage attended on behalf of AMCHP and facilitated discussions amongst the grantees in attendance.
