Envision 

Healthy individuals in healthy communities

 

By November 2022 all Americans have the opportunity to experience optimal well being throughout their lifetime.

 

 

The Envision an American Healthcare System Initiative provides a framework to collectively imagine a uniquely American healthcare system that guarantees access to quality, sustainable healthcare for all Americans along the life continuum and to create healthy environment. We envision that by November 2022 Americans live in healthy communities and each of us have access to healthcare services that provide the highest level of medical services to maintain, wellness regardless of their medical condition.  

 

In order to best address the complexity of the varied challenges of the healthcare system, we recognize that there are specific situations that require healthcare engagement. The interrelated categories of health conditions experienced by all individuals provide a baseline of care and allows for more specific best practices and strategies to be implemented to address specific conditions. Each group has its own definitions of optimal care and treatment priorities. The initiative utilizes a 10-year plan to ensure the healthcare needs of every individual can be met effectively and efficiently, while also addressing strategies to achieve optimal public health outcomes. Particular focus will be on the role of Health Information Technology’s role in achieving our vision.
