IOM offers assessment framework for community-based wellness efforts

Modern Healthcare: Framework Offered For Measuring Community-Based Wellness Efforts
An Institute of Medicine committee released a report describing a framework to estimate the value of community-based, nonclinical prevention policies and wellness strategies. The goal of the report, called An Integrated Framework for Assessing the Value of Community-Based Prevention, is to make it easier to prevent disease, increase behaviors that improve health and well-being, slow or stop the progress of disease, and decrease disparities, all at the population level, according to a summary of the report (Barr, 11/3).
