CCBC’s governance structure includes a steering committee responsible for oversight and strategic direction. Steering committee membership is comprised of leadership from the Louisiana Department of Health & Hospitals, City of New Orleans Health Department, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana and the Louisiana Public Health Institute. An operating board with representation from partner institutions is involved with implementation and monitoring of the CCBC initiative. Workgroups around specific types of interventions bring together partners for discussion and recommendation-making related to the design, implementation and evaluation of interventions within the context of targeted clinical settings. CCBC project teams work closely with the Office of National Coordinator for HIT and other Beacon Communities across the country to inform and share best practices for population health improvement strategies.
