The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) and Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS) are exploring options for aligning their programs, services and operations more closely in order to better serve the needs of Iowans.
By “aligning,” we mean using, sharing, coordinating, or structuring two or more things (programs, services, processes, technology, data, access points like buildings or websites, etc.) in new, more closely connected ways.
We are seeking input on these efforts from employees across both departments and people across the state. To this end, we invite you to respond to our survey as well as share the link to the survey with anyone who may have insights and suggestions to help us in this effort. The survey will close on Friday, August 6, 2021.
You do not need to respond to all questions – they are designed to help you think about and share your thoughts about different and creative ways in which we might be able to bring the work of IDPH and DHS into closer alignment.
Thank you for your time and input!
