October 25, 2021

The Center for Innovation in Population Health (IPH), based in the University of Kentucky’s College of Public Health, was featured as a Thought Leader at the 2021 American Public Health Association (APHA) Annual Meeting & Expo.


The IPH Center's story was one of 17 Thought Leader short films presented at APHA's Annual Meeting (Oct. 24-27, 2021) and shared with over 10,000 attendees. The IPH Center's video shares how they address population health challenges through a Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management (TCOM) framework.


"The IPH Center gives voice to the least priviledged in the world," says Dr. John Lyons, IPH Center Director. "Our mission is to engineer person-centered care through Transformative Collaborative Outcomes Management (TCOM) outcomes, which focuses on personal change, collaboration, and people's stories to drive system change."


The IPH Center's work builds on person-centered care and safety science to develop a set of evidence-based tools to both support comprehensive consensus-based assessments and shift workplace cultures to focus on collaboration as a mechanism of accountability.


APHA Thought Leaders are recognized as public health servants, researchers, and program leaders that are at the forefront of providing successful interventions, initiatives, and programs. APHA TV provides a platform to help raise the visibility of Thought Leaders who are engaged in pioneering work and aid the exposure of innovative public health initiatives across the country.


The APHA champions the health of all people and all communities. APHA's Annual Meeting and Expo strengthens the profession of public health, shares the latest research and information, promotes best practices, and advocates for public health issues.
