Mission: The Health Activist Network empowers health professionals to create the health system in which they want to work.
Launched in 2017, the Health Activist Network is an in-person and online hub for health professionals from across the continuum to create the health system we all need by accelerating policy and care delivery improvements. Through the Network, interdisciplinary health professionals have the opportunity to attend in-person and virtual events, learn from national health reform advisors, build local and national advocacy networks, and acquire the tools and training needed to lead improvements in their work settings.
In 2018, the Health Activist Network established three main focus areas: strengthening the adolescent behavioral health safety net, reducing maternal mortality and perinatal failures , and removing waste from the health system and reinvesting the savings in services that improve health.
The Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative manages the Health Activist Network, with funding from the DSF Charitable Foundation and the Jewish Healthcare Foundation. The online Health Activist Network tools are powered by Tomorrow's HealthCare™.
