This Request for Proposals (RFP) is issued by the Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNYC), on behalf of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), to solicit proposals to establish an Agency Master Patient Index Solution. 

The Agency Master Patient Index Solution includes the application software, as well as the provision of all build and implementation resources to deliver an extensible, source agnostic MPI solution as a centralized patient repository of all patients contained in DOHMH contributing data sources.

Programs across the agency utilize various matching software tools to support operational and research needs defined by the program. The source agnostic MPI solution will have the ability to integrate external modular matching software into the stack or provide a matching process that can honor match decisions from outside matching solutions through matching logic.

The agency is looking forward to implementing the Agency Master Patient Index in a fully managed, cloud hosted, environment to foster modernization of the technical infrastructure that is scalable, flexible and meets federal standards on health interoperability Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR R4.0) for the Master Patient Index solution and API. 

A DOHMH copy of patient identifier assignments or cross walk table will be implemented and maintained with automated synchronization with MPI environment for back-end accessibility.

Project Description: Community-Based Initiatives for Health Literacy and Action Project (CIHLA) will focus on increasing the health literacy of four Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) zip codes that have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. CBOs/FBOs will work to (1) examine current health literacy practices and environments and provide resources (where necessary) to augment current practices, (2) develop, implement and adapt health literacy materials and messaging and engagement strategies for and by the disparate populations, and (3) develop communities of practice1, strengthen networks and build infrastructure to inform policies and procedures to strengthen methodologies and tools to adhere to the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (NCLAS), meet Healthy People 2030 goals, advance health equity strategies that are rooted in lived experiences, local knowledge, and anti-racist practices.  

The health literacy intervention will be designed to center the knowledge of trusted messengers and build CBOs’ capacity to (1) provide health information, services, and resources in a manner that is responsive to the health literacy, cultural, and linguistic needs of the communities they serve; (2) advocate for improving systems that impact access to health information, services, and resources for improved communication and (3) support their communities to navigate health-related systems and advocate with health providers. Given that health literacy skills transcend a specific disease, the goal of the intervention is to support CBOs as health literate organizations in their communities, now (COVID-19 related), and into the future. The immediate goal is for community members to experience fewer health literacy-related barriers to accessing, understanding, and utilizing COVID-19 health information, resources, and services in their COVID-19 prevention and treatment decision-making. 

Eligibility: Awardees must be a C/FBO with 501(c)(3) nonprofit status (or a fiscal sponsor), have a site in New York City, provide services to people in the five boroughs, and have a history of working with the population they are proposing to serve.  Applications will also be accepted from organizations working jointly or as part of coalitions. 

Awards: Each award will be up to $374,000 for a 15-month period (approximately April 2022 – June 2023).  

Identified service locations: One C/FBO will be assigned to one of each of the zip codes below. A total of four awards will be made.

Purpose:

The Fund for Public Health NYC (FPHNY) on behalf of the New York City’s Department of Health & Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), is seeking a public health communications organization to support the Public Health Corps (PHC), a network of community-based partners to identify and document individual experiences of community members served. The vendor will also build a repository of stories that captures the personal journeys of people of color in making a vaccination decision in designated Taskforce for Racial Inclusion and Equity (TRIE) neighborhoods. 

The PHC community-based partners have been contracted to lead community engagement to increase COVID-19 vaccine uptake towards equitable COVID-19 pandemic recovery in communities that have experienced longstanding health inequities. This project will document the impact of the community organizations’ interventions within the neighborhoods they serve by observing, assessing and evaluating engagement and will document those findings through personal stories of program beneficiaries.  

The storytelling vendor will play an integral role in helping build a sustainable community-based resource library that will enable community partners to share the personal stories of COVID-19 health impact and recovery. This vendor will provide ongoing analysis, technical assistance, media production, and capacity building for community partners working to increase COVID-19 vaccination and testing, health literacy, and addressing social and health factors that increase risk of severe COVID-19 illness.

Project Description:

The purpose of this project is to develop tools and organize community engagement process in collaboration with 33 community partners to document the individual experiences of the residents of TRIE neighborhoods they serve from March 2022 to June 30, 2022. PHC partners provide education on COVID-19 prevention, health literacy and vaccine equity programs.  Vendor will work with community partners to identify program beneficiaries to interview and cultural and linguistically appropriate processes to incorporate. Vendor will also create a library of stories for each community.  

Eligibility:

The Storytelling vendor should have experience in community engagement with BIPOC communities and with facilitating storytelling with people of various backgrounds and cultures. For this project, the Storytelling vendor should also have the capacity to build a resource library of the stories collected for each community. Through in-person meetings with community organizations, the Storytelling vendor will assess community engagement strategies and capture stories of the people they serve. The vendor should also demonstrate familiarity with racial justice and social justice frameworks and have the capability to produce video recordings.
