Improve community health through cross-sector collaboration
- Improve health care for high-need populations defined by clinical, demographic, geographic and payer determinants
- Participate in cross-sector initiatives that influence community health, such as public safety, neighborhood and economic development, education, and public health collaborations

Recognizing that clinical care represents about only 20% of someone’s health, the Partnership members participate in key community initiatives that have a particular focus on low-income and vulnerable families — and have a significant impact on improving community health.
