Stewarding Regional Health Transformation – A Guide for Changemakers

Transforming our regional health means whole-scale redesign and integration of all the forces that support health and well being. To truly redesign local systems for radically better health, care, and economic prosperity in their regions, members of collaborative leadership teams must establish high aspirations and steward a change effort through distinct phases of transformation. They must create the long-term structures for active engagement of all the relevant participants—including residents—in stewarding shared resources. This Stewardship Guide is meant to help individual leaders and multi-sector collaborations create and sustain successful stewardship structures and change processes to lead regional transformation. It is meant for those who are looking to redesign their systems of health for radically better performance—creating and achieving a transformed system that will help individuals, families, and neighborhoods thrive with better health, lower costs, increased access to care, and improved equity and productivity for all.
