Better Health leading innovations for health
Better Health Partnership's mission is to bring together health care and other stakeholders to collaborate, share best practices and accelerate data-informed improvements in equitable population and community health. With a lens on health equity, we work at the intersection of health care and community to leverage cross-sector opportunities to achieve greater impact, inform policy and support providers in helping their patients meet non-medical needs. Our holistic approach includes our partnership with United Way of Greater Cleveland and its 2-1-1 HelpLink, which enables providers to connect their patients with a trained navigator at 2-1-1 HelpLink who helps individuals obtain resources to meet their needs. Expansion of the program to additional providers and populations is on the horizon.
