Clinical care in a doctor’s office is just one of the factors that influence good health. Health behaviors, genetics, social and economic factors and environment comprise the bulk of the impact on health.

Better Health Partnership supports the integration of aligned community, clinical and public health-based strategies to prevent chronic disease and improve its management. Key partnerships in the community are driving our work forward.

  • We serve as the "anchor" organization for the chronic disease priority of the Health Improvement Partnership – Cuyahoga (HIP-C), one of four HIP-C priorities in play to advance better health for all Cuyahoga County residents. Programs focus on reducing the high incidence and high cost of chronic disease by promoting access to effective care and resources for those living with chronic disease.

  • Better Health’s work to improve control of high blood pressure aligns with HIP-C’s chronic disease objectives. We are facilitating adoption of a best practice to improve control of high blood pressure at nine clinics that serve vulnerable populations, an effort supported in part by a federal grant to the Cuyahoga County Board of Health.

  • Our data and reports provide timely information on inequalities in health care and outcomes across race, place, insurance, and income and education levels –- and on key community-wide health challenges, namely obesity and smoking rates.
