Abstract

The purpose of this article was to present Nebraska's model of collaboration between public health, public health nursing, medicine, and community partners. Another purpose was to provide exemplars of data trends and outcomes of the multiyear experience with the model. The goal of the collaborative model was to promote the concept of a medical home, improve access to care, and better manage population health for the diverse and vulnerable Medicaid population by implementing a change from fee-for-service to managed care. The vision was to better match population health needs to health services used and to reduce disparities. A unique feature of the model is the use of public health professionals and strategies.
