Common Ground Health
Common Ground Health is an independent health planning organization working collaboratively with multi-stakeholder groups to improve health quality and access, and eliminate health care disparities in our community.
We envision Rochester and the Finger Lakes becoming America’s healthiest region with health equity for all people, while serving as a national model for continuous improvement in community health and health care cost and quality. Our mission is to achieve this vision by bringing into focus community health issues via data analysis and community engagement, and by implementing solutions through community collaboration and partnership.
Ongoing efforts to drive change in the health care system focuses on three key elements: System performance: setting realistic performance targets, and measuring and reporting results.
Capacity management: proactively collecting and analyzing data, then working with stakeholders to develop recommendations. Consumer and community engagement: sharing health-status information with affected populations, and working with community leaders to set priorities, develop action plans, and educate and mobilize consumers to improve their health.
