Collaborations and Partnerships

In addition to Temple Center for Population Health-based programs, we partner with other entities within Temple Health, the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, and a number of additional healthcare providers at the state and national level. These strategic partnerships help us to meet the needs of our patients, families and communities.

  • Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University Collaboration

  • Local, State and National-Level Collaborative Programs

Local, State & National-Level Collaborative Programs

The TCPH collaborates with a number of healthcare organizations within the City of Philadelphia and at the State Level. to improve outcomes with the community work with city, state and federal government agencies on the implementation of grant-funded programs to create resources for specific populations of patients. For example:

  • The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) funded by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) through the Philadelphia Department of Health. At the core of this program, is the training of CHWs as peer coaches to target pre-diabetes, hypertension and obesity. The program includes patient education for newly diagnosed hypertension. The patients who have benefited from this grant are in TPI practices, at the KleinLife Community Center, at the Bright Hope Baptist Church, or are part of the Law Enforcement Health Benefits program.

  • TCPH  participated in the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI), a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) grant, awarded to Vizient. The collaborative is designed to provide tools and data to support performance improvement. Metrics have been selected that support the clinical and business imperatives of Temple Physicians, Inc. The focus is on the patient experience, improvement in care coordination and a reduction of gaps in care. The collaborative is designed to prepare providers for alternative payment models being considered by CMS for implementation in the near future.
