One way HealthBegins moves healthcare upstream is by training "Upstreamists" - healthcare professionals who solve clinical problems by partnering with upstream groups to address the social and environmental conditions that make people sick. Our trainers work closely with host sites and use an "Upstream Quality Improvement" framework and tools to engage clinical providers, staff and community stakeholders. Together, participants learn to take concrete steps to redesign workflows and systems to improve health where it begins.
