The Conversations with Hospital and Health System Executives: How Hospitals and Health Systems Can Move Upstream to Improve Community Health report shines a light on how innovative hospitals and health systems are taking nontraditional approaches to community engagement by investing in cross-sector, upstream approaches tied to community health needs—and how others can implement similar approaches.
Released by the de Beaumont Foundation, in partnership with the BUILD Health Challenge, this report explores the changing role of hospitals and health systems. Through a series of interviews with hospital and health system executives who participated in BUILD, the report reveals:
- Key motivations for the organizations’ interest and participation in BUILD; and
- Best practices and insights on future upstream community-based projects.
Conversations with Hospital and Health System Executives highlights dynamic ways in which hospitals and health systems are leveraging their financial assets, medical expertise, political and economic clout, and vast regional and even national infrastructure to accelerate the transformation of community health. This study demonstrates how hospitals and health systems:
- Approach community health
- Measure impact of community programs
- Forge community-led partnerships
The report also includes accompanying “how-to” guides that illustrate how to implement best practices shared by participating hospital and health system executives.
