Engaging Health Care Organizations in Violence Prevention


Health plans, providers, and other health system stakeholders are increasingly seeking ways to address a range of upstream factors that influence health outcomes, quality of care, and costs in their communities. One such upstream factor is exposure to violence and the resulting trauma, whether community-level violence, intimate partner violence, domestic violence, or violence in other forms.

This document provides an overview of investments and programs that health care payers and providers could support to address and prevent the impacts of violence. The strategies are limited to those that are feasible given current regulation and funding in California though the categories of funding sources and strategy focus will be relevant in other states as well. The strategies are separated into those intended for Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans and for other health care delivery stakeholders including hospitals, health systems and health centers. JSI, 2019.
