We improve public health and population health practice to support healthier communities
Solving a Population Health Challenge
Public Health Agencies and Hospitals Building Strong, Healthy Communities and Neighborhoods
Improve outcomes and foster sustainable improvement to priority population health challenges.
Many public health agencies, hospitals, and health systems experience challenges in the transition from assessing and prioritizing population health needs (in either a Community Health Needs Assessment or an internal dashboard audit) to identifying and implementing innovations that achieve measurable improvements. This often is due to the complexity and longstanding nature of the health challenges being addressed and the need to create and manage solutions that involve diverse stakeholders.
