Health and Wellbeing
We are committed to the ideas expressed in the Declaration of Independence's Preamble
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Our society has failed to develop a sustainable system that provides access to quality, affordable healthcare for all Americans. Medical care techniques continue to improve and are growing more sophisticated every day. But the costs are not sustainable, and the system fails to meet the basic needs of more and more Americans.
Hospital Watch is a Citizens4health initiative that provides a framework to invite fellow citizens to collectively participate in a process that seeks to achieve a uniquely American healthcare system that promotes healthy individuals in healthy communities and provides access to quality, affordable healthcare for all Americans.
Salutogenesis is a concept, orientation, theoretical framework and strategy-oriented model that focuses on the factors that contribute to the creation and maintenance of optimal well being. Within the healthcare system, the salutogenic framework reorients the goals of health care beyond the customary approach that addresses pathology to strengthen individual and social resources that protect and actively promote health and optimal well being and strive to establish communities for thriving citizens.
