PARTNER (Program to Analyze, Record and Track Networks to Enhance Relationships)

Photo uploaded by Dana InglehartThis social network analysis tool is designed to measure and monitor collaboration among people or organizations. The tool was designed at RAND via Robert Wood Johnson Foundation funding for use by collaboratives or coalitions to demonstrate to stakeholders, partners, evaluators, and funders how members are connected, how resources are leveraged and exchanged, how levels of trust change, and the growth of outcomes. For its New Hampshire Center for Excellence project, JSI has used PARTNER for two consecutive years to measure the development of community-level partnerships, a short-term outcome, in the New Hampshire Regional Network System for Substance Misuse Prevention. Findings are being used across the Network to celebrate progress, build strategies where strong partnerships exist and identify opportunities for further collaboration. JSI’s work with this tool has been highlighted in The Nation’s Health, the American Public Health Association monthly newsletter as well as the enewsletter Public Health Services and Systems Research (PHSSR) Matters.
