New York City Health + Hospitals

Using Well-Being to Assess Population Health Needs

For their latest Community Health Needs Assessment, New York City Health + Hospitals wanted to move beyond the typical disease indicators and understand the overall health and well-being of their hospital service areas.

We worked with NYCHH to adapt the Seven Vital Conditions of Health and Well-being framework to their specific indicators and areas of focus. Using the Seven Vital Conditions, NYCHH was able to identify gaps and priorities in different areas like environment and housing that are more relevant and actionable than the typical social determinants.
