Evidence-Based & Innovative Priority Interventions

RWJBarnabas Health recognizes that, in order to effectively address the factors that lead to poor health outcomes, a multi-level approach is required. Complimenting robust policy and systems change efforts, is strategic investment in communities to implement evidence-based and innovative programs. Through inclusive and on-going dialogue with its facilities, internal departments and diverse external stakeholders, the SICI practice co-designs interventions that intentionally address equity and improve the health, social, and economic outcomes of individuals throughout New Jersey and in targeted global communities.

Priorities for SICI practice interventions were determined through the review of recommendations and findings from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Healthy People 2020 initiative, the New Jersey Department of Health’s Healthy New Jersey 2020 initiative, RWJBarnabas Health Community Health Needs Assessment data, scholarly research on social determinants of health interventions and issues and insights gleaned from dialogues and working group sessions with system community engagement practitioners as well as community leaders and members.

The range of interventions are comprehensive, intersecting and contribute to the long range impact of producing healthy people, healthy homes, and healthy communities, locally and globally.
