Objective

Community Health Innovations (CHI) leverages preventive services, technology and interdisciplinary care teams to support healthcare providers and payers in managing population health.  

CHI was established by leaders at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital (SVMH), Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (CHOMP) and the Monterey Bay Independent Physician Association (MBIPA), inspired by a commitment to collaborative population health strategies that improve patient care and community wellbeing in Monterey County.

The Diabetes Collaborative, convened and managed by CHI, was developed in 2018 to provide a coordinated response to the prevalence of diabetes and prediabetes in Monterey County. While hospitals and physicians have a critical role in addressing the acute medical needs of this population, comprehensive community-based strategies are necessary for sustainable diabetes prevention and management. The Diabetes Collaborative leverages Monterey County’s vibrant network of clinical and community resources to reduce the personal, social, and economic burden of this complex chronic health condition.
