Caledonia & s. Essex Accountable Health Community

An Accountable Health Community (AHC) is an aspirational model—accountable for the health and well-being of the entire population in its defined geographic area and not limited to a defined group of patients.

Population health outcomes are understood to be the product of multiple determinants of health, including medical care, public health, genetics, behaviors, social factors, economic circumstances and environmental factors.

An AHC supports the integration of high-quality medical care, mental and behavioral health services, and social services (governmental and non-governmental) for those in need of care.

It also supports community-wide prevention efforts across its defined geographic area to reduce disparities in the distribution of health and wellness.
The Caledonia & s. Essex Accountable Health Community is involved in a number of regional, state, and national projects, including a partnership with the Vermont Foodbank and Feeding America and Bridging for Health: Innovations in Financing for Community Heath Improvement.
