In 2010, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) started the Community and Population Health Initiative to tackle the most prevalent, challenging, and burdensome health issues facing children and families in southern Ohio. By creating partnerships within the community and focusing on the pillars of the Institute for Health Care Improvement’s Triple Aim framework, the Community and Population Health Initiative has reduced the negative impact of social determinants like education, housing, and the environment on health outcomes. To date, CCHMC has seen a reduction in asthma admissions, improved social and environmental risk screening during both inpatient and outpatient care, and substantial increases in connections between families and key resources in the community. The initiative began with funding from CCHMC, as well as funding from federal agencies and foundations. To read more about this innovative program, see this brief summary [link].
