Philly Health for All is a project organized by Citizens4Health, an organization motivated by the belief that citizen engagement will contribute to solutions to the big problems that confront our nation.
Our program provides a different approach from the current toxic political debate on how to address the challenges facing our healthcare system (and our nation).
We focus on one question:
How can we all (patients, doctors and healthcare institutions; citizens, non-for profit organizations and government; consumers and the "private" sector corporations) achieve a sustainable system that provides access to excellent quality, affordable healthcare for all Americans?
We are testing the following equation
PATIENTS & HOSPITALS & DOCTORS + EVIDENCE BASED PRACTICE + PUBLIC REPORTING, TRANSPARENCY & ACCOUNTABILITY + CITIZEN ENGAGEMENT
Excellent healthcare value that is safe, efficient and accessible for all Americans
