The health care delivery and health planning landscape in the Austin MSA is changing rapidly. COH desires for itself and for the benefit of its community partners to add value to the strategic initiatives being established at the Dell Medical School (DMS) and by other governmental, nonprofit, and health-focused entities in Central Texas. COH enjoys a strong reputation as a trusted data steward, provider of high-quality geospatial analysis, and convener of action-oriented health summits.
In order to build on that reputation and enhance value to Central Texas, Children’s Optimal Health (COH) is very pleased to have contracted for the consulting services of Dr. Anjum Khurshid, MD, PhD, MPAff.
Dr. Khurshid will provide insight into better positioning COH to interface with the multiplicity of groups at DMS and elsewhere that are pursuing health-related innovations in Austin. Dr. Khurshid has the background and experience to help COH develop relationships with new and existing partners that more effectively match its capacity to emerging needs. Dr. Khurshid can also help COH access funding and technical assistance from national programs (both governmental and philanthropic) that support community-oriented, data-sharing activities.
