The AHA’s Committee on Research (COR) is exploring what the next generation of community health may look like as hospitals redefine themselves to keep pace with the changing health care landscape. There will be different paths of transformation and different approaches taken to improve community health status. This report is intended to encourage activity within the field to improve community health, offer an overview of current strategies as well as provide new ones, and spotlight tools and best practices. It is organized into three sections: Trends Driving Community Health, Results from a Community Health Focus and Benefiting the Community Beyond the Four Walls of the Hospital (First and Second Generation Strategies).
