Social justice and compassion are the values that guide Trinity Health's work in transforming health care in America. Passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was an important step that will help connect millions of individuals and families with health coverage and start to lay the groundwork for better coordinated care. As ACA is implemented, there is and must do to create a health care system that works for everyone.
On March 5 and 6, 2013, Trinity Health and its Ministry Organizations will be visiting policymakers to discuss what is at stake in America's changing health care system and to make recommendations to Congress.
Through its Lead the Way campaign, Trinity Health is encouraging our nation's leaders to work toward a system that provides affordable coverage and high-value, coordinated care to every patient. Our network of health care providers joins us while, at the same time, continuing to implement evidence-based practices that allow them to achieve what they set out to do when they first chose this career --- deliver the best possible care.
Aligned with the Catholic Health Association's and the American Hospital Association's views on the ACA, Trinity Health's advocacy efforts keep us moving forward every day to educate, inform and serve as a resource to employees, patients, affiliated clinicians and caregivers, the general public and policymakers, as well. We share our knowledge of --- and experience with --- what works in:
- Developing joint accountability for health outcomes
- Implementing effective technologies for the advancement of electronic health records
. . . and we share our story. Trinity Health, among the largest Catholic health systems in the nation, is a leader that has been transforming health care delivery for more than a decade, consistently responding to the need for better, more coordinated care and making necessary changes. Why change? Because it's the right thing to do.
