Health Impact in 5 Years

Achieving lasting impact on health outcomes requires a focus not just on patient care, but on community wide approaches aimed at improving population health.[1-6] Interventions that address the conditions in the places where we live, learn, work, and play have the greatest potential impact on our health. By focusing on these “social determinants of health” 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 five years, and 3) cost effectiveness and/or cost savings over the lifetime of the population or earlier.
