Given the growing evidence that nonmedical determinants (such as housing, access to affordable healthy foods, and opportunities for physical activity) have a disproportionate impact on a population’s health, the health care sector has begun to respond with a wide range of activities to bridge health care and population health activities.
The summit featured a diverse set of national and New York State leaders who shared details of their work, how they are tracking progress, lessons learned, and opportunities to replicate efforts in health systems and primary care settings. New York State and City officials also provided updates of statewide and citywide efforts to help advance collaborations between health care systems and other sectors. Health care providers, insurers, business leaders, policymakers, public health and community leaders, and researchers attended this conference.
