Investing for the future: New ways for institutions and communities to fund and manage their upstream investments
Through community partnerships and collaboratives, healthcare organizations are launching programs to address social needs and social determinants of health.

And one reason is this: As we’re busy designing and managing new upstream initiatives, we’re treating them as individual programs, not as investments within a broader portfolio.
