Get Healthier Care Together, Inc exist for one over arching reason: to lead health outcomes in underserved communities, in a bold systemic shift in outcome health culture, direction, learning, management, structure, and performance, that will result in healthier pathways, healthier choices and a higher quality of life. Why?
Because for decades, failed leadership overseeing underserved communities, continue to leave the health needs of underserved communities, in the hands of local health systems, that offer no net health benefit to the communities they serve.
A bold systemic shift will bring about 9 changes:
1. Align strategy, capabilities and culture for community health transformation and unprecedented possibilities.
2. Engage the hearts, minds and hands of individuals and communities, right where they are, in sustainable Preventive Health Management Partnerships.
3. Reduce systemic health, racial and ethnic disparities in access to care and in care delivery.
4. Shift the worst outcomes to safer and healthier pathways – away from processes and practices that date back more than 20 years. Why? Because the majority of these practices are not only outdated, they contribute to the 70–90 percent failure rates community health currently experience. Institutionalizing outdated failed practices made poor outcomes even worst and has turned community health into a perpetual state of hopeless stagnation that is unable to transform itself on its own.
5. Employ innovation and a navigation tool that tracks and measures the progress individuals and communities in overcoming their disease or illness to live their healthiest life.
6. Credit individuals and communities with the strength and the potential to reverse poor health outcomes.
7. Honor the resilience and power of individuals and communities to make life-changing commitments and contributions to transform their own health outcomes by embracing innovation and preventive health management models of care that empower people live longer, stronger and healthier lives.
8. In a complete role reversal, casts heath care professionals as partners and supporters, rather than as authorities, initiators, and directors of the change process.
