Prevention Institute E-Alert: October 12, 2016

Join PI to discuss Community-Centered Health Homes, and hear from those testing the model

Please join Prevention Institute and our co-sponsors for an upcoming webforum on progress in implementing the Community-Centered Health Homes (CCHH) model. The CCHH model, developed by PI, is emerging as a powerful framework for healthcare institutions to integrate community prevention and clinical services to improve population health and reduce health inequities. The defining attribute of the CCHH is involvement in community advocacy and systems change: a CCHH not only acknowledges that factors outside the healthcare system affect patient health outcomes, but actively participates in improving them. The success of this model is predicated on identifying the underlying causes of injury and illness that are perpetuating poor outcomes within a community, involving relevant partners to participate in analysis and lead action, and engaging community members.
