The Virtua Community Health Institute (CHI) is committed to reduce health disparities and promote health equity through partnerships, collaboration and innovation.
Communication and collaboration
Listening and sharing are the foundation of our ability to accomplish what our community needs from us.
It is our honor to serve our community and advance health equity.
Data collection and analysis allows us to measure our impact, make adjustments as needed, and ensure that we are responsible to our community of patients.
We foster a shared sense of mission among our team for the ultimate benefit of our community.
Thinking differently is our persistent goal, leading to new and more powerful ways of serving those in need.
• The Institute works in a collective impact model, setting a common agenda, fostering shared data, coordinating purposeful community outreach and delivering continually enhanced clinical and community programming.
• Our team of cross-functional professionals identify and address the health related social determinant needs of our patients. Through our internal collaboration, we eliminate blind spots and ensure improved access to care and increase health education precisely where it is needed.
• The Institute serves as a resource with other like-minded organizations.
• As the bridge to the Virtua Health System and Virtua Medical Group, our Institute team works in collaboration with the Virtua Foundation to deliver clinical and community solutions to improve patient outcomes.
