Learning About Efforts to Shift Systems to Foster Health and Well-Being

January 2018 – Ongoing // Florida, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts

ReThink Health works with national & regional stewards to discover what it takes to design and execute transformative change and produce better health and well-being for all.

As a Rippel initiative, ReThink Health is interested in working with a particular kind of steward—those who are positioned to influence how regional decisions are made, and how resources are spent—to equitably shift the system in ways that better produce health and well-being.

Our team at Visible Network Labs is working with Rethink Health to learn from the experiences of seeveen community networks across the nation. Using PARTNER, our platform for community partner relationship management, we’re helping them collect, map and analyze information about the structure and quality of partnerships in these networks. Repeating the process over time is helping ReThink Health. 

"We find that while organizations want to bring in more people and understand the need to work together, they often don't know how to do it well, or do it in name only. PARTNER helped us go deep and understand the decision making processes and governance structures, all the constraints they face so they could be more intentionally interdependent and improve their collaborative outcomes."
