The Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNYC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to the advancement of the health and well-being of all New Yorkers. To this end, in partnership with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), FPHNYC incubates innovative public health initiatives implemented by DOHMH to advance community health throughout the city. It facilitates partnerships, often new and unconventional, between government and the private sector to develop, test, and launch new initiatives. These collaborations speed the execution of demonstration projects, effect expansion of successful pilot programs, and support rapid implementation to meet the public health needs of individuals, families, and communities across New York City.
PROGRAM OVERVIEW (PRIMARY CARE INFORMATION PROJECT)
As part of the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), the Bureau of Primary Care Information Project (PCIP) is devoted to improving health by promoting and supporting primary care. PCIP works with over 1,300 health care organizations on increasing clinical prevention opportunities, reducing health disparities, managing/preventing chronic disease, and creating community linkages to support health promotion.
PCIP is partnering with the Division of Mental Health on a citywide initiative called the Mental Health Service Corps (MHSC). MHSC was developed as part of the mayoral initiative called ThriveNYC (the Mental Health Roadmap), an unprecedented strategy and set of initiatives involving most city agencies to approach mental health as a comprehensive public health challenge. MHSC is a workforce initiative that hires, trains and supervises early career mental health professionals (social workers, psychologists and physicians/psychiatrists) to deliver evidence based behavioral health interventions in high need primary care and behavioral health settings. At expected full strength, MHSC will support close to 400 clinicians across the city in high need communities and clinics.

Primary responsibilities include data analysis and preparation of deliverables including statistical data summaries, descriptive analyses, data visualizations and reports of major findings; collection/tracking/management of evaluation data; as well as assisting with the development of surveys of primary care and behavioral health practices, evaluations of trainings, and surveillance of patient-level outcomes. The Analyst will work with a dynamic, cross-disciplinary team that includes evaluation, operations, and clinical staff. The Analyst will also collaborate with PCIP’s Evaluation team that extracts data from the Hub, a cutting-edge, real-time query system which gathers data from EHRs at more than 720 doctor’s offices, community health centers, and hospital clinics.
