Understanding what matters to communities in planning healthcare services: A Framework and User Guide
What Would a Health-Creating System Look Like? Most health systems are designed to address illness rather than achieve wellness. Any organization that wants to improve health equity must fundamentally change the current system that produces disparities in health outcomes. Co-designed by health system partners, the Population Health Needs Framework and User Guide identifies innovative opportunities to improve the health and well-being of Albertans and their communities. By shifting our perspective of health AND co-designing with Albertans, we will improve population health and health equity. This innovative approach is being used by AHS Zones, Primary Healthcare, and community partners to jointly plan services across the continuum of care. Share how you identify social determinants of health, plan and take action to improve population health and well-being?
