Community Healthcare Organizations
The Johnson & Johnson Community Health Care Program works to improve the sustainability of community healthcare organizations around the country.
In an increasingly competitive arena for limited funding, there is a heightened need for community healthcare organizations to hone the skills necessary to demonstrate program effectiveness. To that end, the Scholars Program provides evidence-based technical assistance to help the community healthcare organizations improve their in-house capacity in monitoring and evaluation.
According to Dr. Rick Martinez, Johnson & Johnson Medical Director for Corporate Contributions, the partnership between the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health and Johnson & Johnson was created to leverage an important academic-industry partnership.
At the end of the grant period, the staff at each healthcare organization is able to design and implement their own evaluation plan, including setting goals, objectives, and indicators, creating a conceptual framework as well as a database, and conducting data analysis and presenting their program's outcomes.
