The Connecticut Health Foundation’s tagline is, “Changing Systems, Improving Lives.” It’s our shorthand for our theory of change, which is that we advance systems change through our grantmaking and our policy work.
But what is systems change? CT Health asks those seeking our funding and partnership to tell us about what systems need change in Connecticut. But understanding and discussing systems change can be challenging. Systems change definitions are typically academic and jargon-y.
We hope this infographic, which offers a new way to think about systems change, will help enable productive conversations about how we can work together to improve lives by changing systems. Sign up for our email newsletter to learn how we can change health care systems together.
