Using The Community Guide for Community Health Improvement Initiative
The Using The Community Guide for Community Health Improvement pilot initiative is aimed at helping hospitals use evidence-based recommendations and findings found in The Community Guide to take action and implement community health improvement activities in collaboration with health departments and other community stakeholders. A joint effort of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, PHF, ACHI/Health Research & Educational Trust, and the Catholic Health Association, the Using The Community Guide for Community Health Improvement initiative is using the population health driver diagram framework, developed by PHF, to help hospitals and their community partners align and implement actions to address identified population health priorities. Four hospitals are now actively testing this framework and are working with community stakeholders to address health priorities ranging from behavioral health to obesity to HIV/AIDS.
