Good health has long been defined as simply not being sick. Yet there is growing awareness that health and well-being are strongly influenced by complex social factors: where we live, how we work, the safety of our neighborhood, and the resilience of our families. In fact, research indicates that clinical care accounts for just 20% of health outcomes.
The recognition of the impact of these “social determinants of health” is fueling innovative, integrated approaches that address what happens outside the traditional medical system with a special focus on those most vulnerable to risks.
That’s why Passport is creating this Health and Well-Being Campus – to bring resources together in one location close to where thousands of residents (and thousands of members) live to help them meet their basic human needs and thrive.
