Healthcare organizations exist to serve their communities, and though community health has always been a focus for these organizations, health outcomes, especially among vulnerable populations, are not as they should be. The health of a community or geographic population has a critical impact on a healthcare organization’s planning, operations, financial sustainability, and success.

The Hospital and Healthcare Transformation Bill signed into law last year by the Illinois state legislature dedicated $150 million each year for the next five years to address health equity by sustainably improving access and outcomes. Hear from one of eight collaboratives around the state – the South Side Healthy Community Organization – about their care coordination model and what they plan to accomplish with 13 healthcare providers working together. They will also talk about the importance of technology in healthcare as essential to improved health outcomes.  A population-based focus is the right thing to do and in time, will prove to be a financially astute course of action.
