Community Health Peer Learning Program (CHP)

In February 2015, ONC released the Community Health Peer Learning Program (CHP)  Funding Opportunity Announcement CLP-CL-15-001. CHP builds upon the success of the 17 Beacon Communities, with a particular focus in supporting population health improvements at the community level.

In July 2015, ONC awarded AcademyHealthWeb Site Disclaimers $2.76 million to serve as the National Program Office for CHP. Throughout this two-year program, AcademyHealth will work in partnership with ONC to establish a national peer learning collaborative for 15 competitively-awarded communities to address specified population health management challenges through increased sharing and use of electronic data.

CHP Communities

In January 2016, AcademyHealth announced the 15 communities – ten Participant and five Subject Matter Expert (SME) – selected to participate in the program. Through CHP, communities will work with AcademyHealth to identify data solutions, accelerate local progress, disseminate best practices, help inform national strategy around population health challenges, and align with other delivery system reform efforts driving toward better care, smarter spending, and healthier people.
