Systems Improvements

The Washtenaw Health Initiative and the Center for Health and Research Transformation are using information about community health needs–data aggregated from the social and medical care coordination intervention, social determinants of health screenings, and additional stakeholder engagement activities–to improve wellbeing and reduce unnecessary medical costs in Livingston and Washtenaw Counties.

By collecting and disseminating data on community health needs and creating a neutral space for local partners to unite around those needs–aligning objectives and services in pursuit of a common vision–WHI and CHRT help the region address a number of factors that affect community health such as substance use disorders (read about our ABLe Change process), housing needs, and more.
