|HAN member Providence’s leaders and Well Being Trust’s Tyler Norris discuss seven Standards of Excellence in Community Health Investments for broad consideration by health care systems and partners. They stress that a focus on the “vital conditions for intergenerational well-being” must be at the core of health systems’ efforts to deliver measurable outcomes and include HAN and the anchor mission framework as one of the seven standards.|
On the topic of excellent anchor mission community health investments, HAN member MetroHealth broke groundon its $60 millionVía Sana mixed-use affordable housing project, which will also include a large economic opportunity center offering job training and college courses run by MetroHealth in partnership with Cuyahoga Community College.
From the Providence and Well Being Trust AHA article:
Evidence from more than four decades of place-based investments shows that comprehensive, multi-dimensional community investment strategies can measurably advance human health and well-being. Measurable progress is more likely when multiple levels of the health care system engage in the work, leaders integrate best practices for delivering “quadruple aim[i]“outcomes, and clinical and non-clinical partners (both internal and based in communities) align with each other in resource allocation and implementation.
