Title: An Integrated Systems Approach to Building Healthy Communities
Lead Author: Chodzko-Zajko, Wojtek
Abstract: NSF/SBE 2020 White Paper An Integrated Systems Approach to Building Healthy Communities Submitted by Wojtek Chodzko-Zajko, Edward McAuley, William P. Stewart, Kenneth L. Watkin, and Tanya M. Gallagher Center on Health, Aging, and Disability http://chad.illinois.edu/ College of Applied Health Science University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ Abstract: New community health models that complement and extend traditional primary care strategies must be developed and move us from an illness-oriented model of disease treatment to a wellness-oriented model of health promotion. Teams of researchers and scholars will need to partner across a broad array of disciplines and with a wide variety of community agencies to develop a new, cohesive, and multi-dimensional systems approach to prevention and management of chronic disease and disability. At Illinois we have developed an Integrated Systems Model of Healthy Communities that recognizes that effective health policies, programs, and interventions cannot be targeted at only one level of determinants or risk factors. It is questionable whether traditional disease-based approaches to health care research will be of much value in advancing our understanding of the complex interactions among the multiple levels articulated in the Integrated Systems Model. Rather, realizing our vision will require an investment in the infrastructure and resources needed to build and empower multidisciplinary teams of experts in the social and behavioral sciences, technology and computer science, informatics, social work, education, nutrition, health economics, health policy, and health disparities.
