Author(s): Data Across Sectors for Health
Publication Date: 09/01/2018

From the author(s): Multi-sector collaboration requires us to go beyond what is comfortable and familiar. This short paper introduces you to a basic method for reaching out to those in your community who may share your interest in collaborating and sharing data. We walk through three basic steps for this outreach and provide questions to guide your conversation: 1. Do your homework: who should you talk to? 2. Reach out and listen: what do they care about? 3. Identify value: what’s in it for us? You don’t have to answer every question along the way; you just have to get started. This paper outlines the process of discovering the value of multi-sector data sharing initiatives. The series of papers and associated materials is available at: www.dashconnect.org/value
