The Foundation's Health Tracking initiative was designed to support efforts to understand better health system changes and how these changes affect people.Established in 1995 with Foundation support, the Center for Studying Health System Change has reached a stage where there is a steady flow of results emerging from its research activities. In addition, the Center has begun a series of convening activities with the objective of presenting its own findings to influential constituencies. Currently, there is no communications expertise within the Center to assist the director and staff in creating and implementing a dissemination strategy that will establish the Center as an important resource tracking changes in the health care system. Similarly, there is no on-site communications expertise to provide the Center with advice and counsel regarding message development, public speaking and presentation skills, and institutional image-building. The purpose of this project is for a consultant to devote one day a week assisting the Center with these strategic communications activities. Funds will be used to provide counsel on outreach activities to constituent audiences, message development for products and Center events, and editing of appropriate Center material. The consultant will provide a broad range of institutional and media relations consulting services to the Center's director and staff one day a week in support of its mission and activities.
