b'Bolder vision. Wider reach.Cone Health has a long history of caring for our community, and it is our future that is truly exciting. Were gathering partners and rallying around a plan to create a new national model for health care. The goal is bold, as is the motivation behind it: We believe that we can significantly improve health and well-being throughout our community by daring to do things differently. This is what bold looks like:Not just treating the sickbut keeping our neighbors well. Not just responding to injurybut focusing on prevention. Investigating and alleviating the nonmedical factors that affect health. Working to uncover and address why certain patients face increased health challenges. This kind of problem-solving changes outcomes by reversing health threats and even stopping them before they take root. It requires innovative thinking and partners across different sectors and organizations. It calls for strategic relationships so that we can fill gaps and share strengths, all in the name of caring for our neighbors. We will be the health system that did something to bring real change where its needed most. Join us for deeply meaningful work, right here in our community.ON THE COVER Outstanding Patient Outcomes Jake Hochrein, MD, chief of Cone Healths cardiovascular service line and Cone Health Medical Group HeartCare, is proud to be part of a health system with a history of innovation. Case in point: In 2014, a Cone Health patient received the second wireless pacemaker in the country. The procedure was part of the departments commitment to cutting-edge care through clinical trials and treatments that later become the standard. Our patients have access to it before the rest of the world does, Dr. Hochrein explains. Today, Cone Health physicians are bringing that same focus and drive to preventive care. Cone Health is working collaboratively with community partners to understand patients and their individual situations and barriers, then designing programs to set them up for success. We first seek to understandand thats an innovation, Dr. Hochrein says. Cone Health Philanthropy1'
