Through the Systems Integration Project, the greater Rochester community is working across a diverse network of committed providers and community members to put people at the center of care
in an interconnected system of education, health, and human services. By coming together as a community, we will improve the health and economic well-being
of individuals and families in Monroe County, especially those who are vulnerable and/or impacted by poverty.
Why Systems Integration
In 2015, IBM’s Smarter Cities Challenge study found Rochester to be “program rich but results poor.” It identified a number of changes needed to reduce poverty which included; realizing the potential of communities and neighborhoods, leveraging data for greater insight, coordinating services to optimize outcomes, and introducing preventive strategies to stop poverty before it starts.
The Systems Integration Project began its work in 2017 as a community-wide approach to create lasting change. Upon the completion of this work, we will see strengthened person-centered community programs and an integrated data system empowering individuals and their care teams to provide better and more holistic care.
Commitment to Equity
All staff and volunteers who are part of the Systems Integration Project formally and adamantly affirm their commitment to creating a re-imagined system that is equitable, just, and anti-racist
. Participation from community members is actively sought and project components are evaluated through a community-led Equity Review process. Please read our Anti-Racism Declaration
Cultural Priorities & Values
Staff, volunteers, and organizations connected to Systems Integration are expected to approach their work and our community with the following priorities and values: Be Transparent, Be Accountable, Be Community Focused, Be Agile, and Be Respectful and Listen.
