Public Health Institute (on behalf of the Alignment of Governance and Leadership in Healthcare Initiative) and Nemours Children's Health System (on behalf of the Moving Health Care Upstream Initiative) are excited to announce the release of Policy Leadership for Health Care Transformation: Formalizing our Commitment to Communities.
Through this project, Public Health Institute and Nemours engaged 18 hospital and health systems seen as leaders in the upstream movement, specific to health care & community partnership that address social determinants of health. Examples from these leaders were synthesized into an organizing framework consisting of two major categories, or Foundational Pillars: internally-focused Institutional Policy Strategies and externally-focused Civic Engagement Strategies, each with sub-categories.
The framework (which is fleshed out with detailed examples as well as sample documents shared by participating hospitals and health systems) is designed to serve as an actionable roadmap for hospitals and health systems in earlier stages of their own upstream journeys.
