We work with communities to create lasting change.
Community-driven solutions should be at the forefront of efforts to transform the systems that deliver health to Coloradans. We partner with and bring together community organizations, health systems leaders, and others, to support initiatives that drive innovation and improve health and health care. Then, through partnership and collaboration, we are able to accelerate change in Colorado’s communities and work towards health equity.
Community-Driven Health Systems Change
We partner with and bring together community organizations, health systems leaders, and others to facilitate community-led initiatives that drive innovation and improve local health systems. This includes offering our technical expertise in coalition building, facilitation, community change, and collaboration. We work in a supportive, behind the scenes way in partnership with communities working to improve health and achieve health equity. We focus on:
- Increasing collaboration and shared learning between and across communities
- Increasing the visibility of local health care work across the state
- Elevating the collective voice of community efforts to improve health
We’re partnering with hospital and clinic leaders who want to become champions for health equity within their institutions and community. Through EquityLab, a year-long learning and leadership development program, participants identify health equity projects that they will implement in their organizations–changing policies, programs, and organizational culture. Along with our consultants, we provide training, technical assistance, and frequent coaching to ensure health care leaders build their capacity and expertise for action.
