    • Description:
      Achieving lasting impact on health outcomes requires a focus not just on patient care, but also on community-wide approaches aimed at improving population health. Programs that address the conditions in the places where we live, learn, work, and play have the greatest potential for keeping people healthy. By focusing on these “social determinants of health” (SDOH) and on “changing the context to make healthy choices easier,” we can help improve the health of everyone living in a community. The Health Impact in 5 Years (HI-5) Initiative highlights non-clinical, community-wide approaches that have evidence reporting: 1) positive health impacts, 2) results within 5 years, and 3) cost effectiveness or cost savings over the lifetime of the population or earlier. The public health impact pyramid shows the potential impact of different types of public health interventions. At the base of the pyramid are those interventions that have the greatest potential for impact on health because they reach entire populations of people at once and require less individual effort. The HI-5 Initiative maps directly to the two lowest tiers of the public health pyramid with the greatest potential for positive impact.
