That’s why Common Ground Health brings together leaders from across our nine-county region to collaborate on strategies for improving health. Hospitals. Insurers. Universities. Businesses. Nonprofits. Government. Faith communities. Residents. All have a seat at our tables.
At Common Ground Health, we believe the first step to solving a problem is measuring it. We maintain the region’s most comprehensive collection of health and health care data and provide the analytic expertise needed to make sense of that information.
