The Framework Stakeholder Engagement Project

IL Framework Project Graphic - Engagement

The Framework recognizes that the ideas and insights of consumers, service providers, advocates and state employees contribute to more user-friendly, customer-focused healthcare and human services delivery systems.

The Illinois Public Health Institute (IPHI) leads educational activities and collects feedback to ensure that the Framework is responsive to the needs of its stakeholders.

Peter Eckart

Peter Eckart, Stakeholder Engagement Project, facilitates a small group discussion with state employees.

You are invited to participate in a web-based conversation about the way IT systems, government agencies and concurrent program changes are coming together to provide more “person-centric” services. All service providers, advocates and state employees are encouraged to attend.

Space is limited and registration is required. Registration is available through the links in the right column below, and through the events calender on the right side of the page. 

Invite your colleagues and partners to attend by sharing our save-the-date flyer. Additional activities for consumers and providers will be announced in the coming weeks.

Tell us about upcoming meetings in your area

Stakeholders are invited to help shape the next Listening Tour schedule by suggesting upcoming conferences, meetings or events that could accommodate a Framework presentation or discussion session.

The Stakeholder Engagement Project aims to schedule Town Halls and Focus Groups around the state, but the intention is to piggy-back off existing events, rather than organizing independent meetings.

Tell us about upcoming conferences, meetings or events that could potentially accommodate a Framework presentation or discussion session by emailing, or using the website’s “contact us” feature.

Act as a Framework Champion

The Framework intends to utilize volunteers as part of its change management plan to help increase awareness, understanding and support for the Framework. The Framework will enlist and engage as many Champions as possible over the duration of the project.
