For the sake of all patients, the Total Health Roadmap integrates screenings for basic human needs into our primary care settings. These needs represent a range of physical, social and psychological conditions such as availability of food and safe housing, transportation, quality childcare, access to behavioral health service, and social support.
We’re focused on achieving the following core goals:
- Ensure basic human needs are addressed as a standard of care.
- Leverage the status of CHI health systems as “anchor institutions” in their communities.
- Build broad-based community coalitions that can lend assistance.
Our mission has always been to create and sustain healthy communities. This program is a dynamic and effective embodiment of that mission.
