Health: A Long & Healthy Life
Good health and well-being involves far more than treating and preventing diseases.
Health Action strategies to support a long and healthy life for every person in Sonoma County focus on three main areas:
- Promote high-value, well-coordinated, person-centered health care that is available and accessed by all community members.
- Promote healthy, safe communities and environments.
- Support behavioral health care as an essential component of overall well-being, including upstream prevention.
Health Action promotes person-centered health care for everyone in Sonoma County through the Committee for Healthcare Improvement. CHI leads improvement initiatives across the local healthcare system, bringing the medical world and the community together to drive community health improvement. As a coalition of healthcare providers and community health partners across Sonoma County, CHI is committed to:
- Focusing on issues that can only be, or most effectively be, changed by working together.
- Ensuring that community members and healthcare providers work together to drive health initiatives and health policy.
- Listening to what the community needs to guide improvements in healthcare.
- Measuring our efforts to determine whether we are achieving better care, better health, and lower costs.
- Making sure what we do is sustainable.
