In January 2016 AcademyHealth's Community Health Peer Learning (CHP) Program in partnership with the Office of the National Coordinator, awarded 15 communities with grants to work towards improving community health through the expanded collection, exchange, and use of health data.

This Community Profile outlines the efforts of the University of Chicago Medicine who provided expertise in data
integration and multi-organization collaboration to the CHP Program. As the anchor health care institution on the
south side of Chicago, they convened and collaborated with community partners to address critical health issues in their communities. Through their Medical Home Connection program, they leveraged partnerships with community health centers to educate emergency department utilizers on the value of using medical homes for ongoing care.
