Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Is a classic of roughly forty health systems the country, representing hundreds of hospitals, and the network is really pushing the field for word on having my extinct about something like an acre mission strategy. You mean by that is how to be engaged healthier institutions in thinking about how to leverage their assets things. Like hiring procurement investing all of these things that hospitals are doing their communities and using that to identify the critical shifts that are needed in order to address inequities in health and other racial economic inequities that may be within particular communities. It doesn't example of this is it network since amazing Vinas that room together champ from across distinctly different healthcare institutions one of the accomplishments that they've been working on right now is thinking that having capture the collective impact of healthcare institution work across the country. So for example, collecting data on how healthcare institutions are leveraging their hiring practices that it's not just about how many jobs are being created at ham. You doesn't sleighs or will how many are coming underrepresented populations. What for example may eat a full impact of making a play station. Investment as a hospital in an issue like food or housing, and what is that looking like across the country. So that benchmarking is really one of a kind think it seeks to the hunger, which south caring for network writing night says at for Nisus engaging in incur or addressing from of healthy right thing to do. But because it can have real impact on actually improving health outcomes across the board. Yeah. Because as you improve communities it by way of that health improves in those communities, right?

But I think is really taking hold in new paradigm value based care at the that statement Ord warehousing is or how healthy food is that we eat that. This is also something that's part of health care, and there's a, you know, ballot Austin institutions to consider that. But one of the things I also find really interesting is that I wrote about this movement because I've been working in this space. I was seventeen years old essentially when it was not seen as a nice to have. I also think that indigestion to becoming the of him focus for nelga. Center. We'll have to think about what are the different levels that healthcare institutions can plug it in on social from its of health. And so you have a wide spectrum everything from, you know, even just asking -cations if they need access to feeder housing all the way up to the anchor work that I was talking about with healthcare her network in the democracy collaborative. How do we think about the roles that helped her Tim play as influence as your as a care provider? He's are all things that I know are on the radars of oughta healthcare leaders such a great perspective and Sony.
