From December 2015 to June 2016, JSI worked with the Blue Shield of California Foundation to conduct research on domestic violence and its impact on health costs to support the development of a “Business Case” for health system investment in response to the needs of patient populations that have experienced domestic violence (DV) and trauma.

JSI is currently working on the second phase of this project with a focus on three main components:

  • Engagement of a small group of leading researchers and thought-leaders to develop a plan to build the evidence base making the case for DV to be substantively included in health sector reform, including what types of research and practice efforts needs to be supported to establish proof of concept;
  • Analysis of current trends and opportunities in the health care and public health policy landscape related to potential investment in innovative DV programs;
  • Research on potential process and health and/or utilization outcome measures for advanced DVHCP-type activities.
