Total Health Roadmap

Background Information

The Total Health Roadmap is a system-wide initiative implemented in 2016 to address emerging accountabilities for patient outcomes influenced by social determinants.  Our work is focused on the development of a more effective and equitable continuum of health, wellness and social services in the communities we serve.

Origins of this work are found in the legacy of our foundresses and the CHI Mission and Ministry Fund’s work across the many communities served by CommonSpirit Health hospitals and clinics. We understand that improving the health of communities requires venturing outside the walls of hospitals and clinics to meet people where they live and work.

Our current work is focused on transformation of care delivery to address the impacts of social determinants of health where these factors detract from the health of individuals and communities we serve.

This painting by artist Natalie Roseman is housed in the lobby of CommonSpirit offices in Englewood, CO.

The painting was inspired by the conversations held in the 2016 National Catholic Health Initiatives Leadership conference with the theme “Why Bridges?”

This conference focused on how important it is to make new connections and strengthen existing relationships with our colleagues, customers, patients and communities.

Rooted in our foundational values of human dignity and social justice,

we are an enduring network of healthcare anchor organizations

 fully engaged with their local communities to

ensure individuals and families have every opportunity to live the healthiest lives possible.

Our strategic aims and theory of change are based on the three elements of the conceptual model developed by the Committee on Community-Based Solutions to Promote Health Equity of the National Academy of Science, Engineering and Medicine – increasing community capacity to shape outcomes, engaging in multisector collaborations, and making health equity a shared vision and value.

Aligned efforts across these strategies are necessary to make a positive impact on total health in our communities.
