Developed by Seabourne Consulting, experts in The Intersection Between Poverty and Health Care: A Resource Collection

Poverty Alleviation Collection

The US has seen income inequality is increasing to the largest gap in the past 50 years, and a big driver is medical expenses

After the ACA was enacted, hospital systems were tasked with looking harder at their responsibility to community health and the good they could do by shifting their mindset from on-demand clinical care to overall long-term prevention.

Those early adopters, through impact investing and strong community partnership work,  have paved they way for others.

When hospital systems work within a community to make people healthier overall, this reduces the need for medical intervention --with its requisite bills-- and can help lift multiple generations out of a poverty cycle.
