Bridges to Wellness is a network of medical providers, business and community leaders working together to improve community health. The network advocates for the prevention of chronic disease. We divide our work into two buckets, Health System Integration and Health Promotion.
Health System Integration focuses on issues of health service delivery to improve patient outcomes. Currently, Bridges to Wellness has identified three systems to address:
Health Promotion is our consumer outreach to impact the HealthStyle of individuals. Promoting the adoption of healthy living practices (HealthStyle) is an effective method for improving health outcomes and slowing the growth of health care costs. Our Health Promotion efforts include:
