The Foundation's Public Health Systems Research program was designed to help establish the field of public health systems research as a needed resource that will enable governmental health agencies to improve their performance. Under this project, the researchers will examine how intra-organizational public health networks are linked to process and outcomes. Using dynamic organizational analysis, they will study several agency networks, determine baselines for public health organizational networks, identify common elements and relate common elements identified to performance. They will also compare the public health networks to similar networks in the private sector. The objective of this project is to provide public health managers with a better understanding of the dynamics and impact of intra-organization networks so that they can better plan for and justify allocating limited resources.
