Applying the Learning Collaborative Model

to Dynamically Support Billing Capacity

in Local Health Departments:

Lessons from Texas and Idaho


Cardea is pleased to announce this webinar for administrators and managers for state and local STD and HIV programs, billing/finance personnel and other staff involved in billing with STD/HIV, family planning and other public health settings.


As STD, HIV and other public health programs explore sustainability strategies, including third-party billing, they face unique challenges in building systems, acquiring skills, and sustaining leadership and staff support for these efforts. Learning collaboratives offer an opportunity for programs facing similar barriers to connect with peers and collectively create new solutions for revenue generation. This webinar will highlight two recent learning collaboratives that brought together local public health programs in Texas and Idaho to leverage shared energy and expertise around revenue generation and billing.

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

2:00pm - 3:00pm Eastern

1:00pm - 2:00pm Central

12:00pm - 1:00pm Mountain

11:00am - 12:00pm Pacific
