This project is built on community input.

The South Side Health Transformation Project has engaged more than 900 South Side residents, healthcare providers, faith leaders, elected leaders, patients and more in an effort to gather input and ideas on what makes a healthy community. The proposed transformation model has been informed by 12 small-group community listening sessions, two large scale community meetings, survey responses and continued community feedback.

Close to 100 South Side community members came together at a virtual update session on March 24 to hear and see an update on the South Side Health Transformation Project process and model, which has continued to evolve to reflect community input.

Model Concept

Based on the feedback gathered through community listening sessions, surveys of community members, large-group virtual community meetings and more, we’re developing a model concept; a phased approach for building, transforming and scaling South Side healthcare. This model has four major components, including more access to healthcare providers in the community, targeted care programs focused on common concerns, care coordination led by community health workers who help people find the resources they need, all tied together by a technology platform meant to coordinate data and care every step of the way.
