Healthcare Transformation Initiative

Creating a New Landscape for Community Health

CSC’s Healthcare Transformation Initiative builds infrastructure, creates awareness, and sponsors professional and community health education events. Across five distinct initiatives, we focus on educating communities, non-profits, payers, hospital systems, practices, and individual providers, allowing for the entire medical neighborhood to move in tandem towards the pursuit of a higher level of health care delivery and overall population health improvement. Recognizing the barriers which exist between individuals, their communities, and health care, we focus on educating all members of the medical neighborhood.

Leading the way for wide-scale change in healthcare transformation, CSC continues to provide the best possible healthcare transformation education and support within the primary care setting to optimize the healthcare experience for providers, practices and community members. To do this effectively, we focus on three primary functions:

Enhanced Communication   Special Trainings & Events   Health Care Infrastructure
