Dignity Health's mission is based in serving and advocating for the poor and disenfranchised, and partnering with others in the community to improve quality of life. We put this mission into practice in part through community health programs, community grants and investments, and sustainability initiatives.
Dignity Health has created the Office of Digital Strategy to personalize the consumer and patient experience and enhance the overall care experience, whether online or in person. Through digital transformation, we are advancing our commitment to bring high-quality, affordable health care to the communities we serve.
At Dignity Health, we understand that our wellness is inextricably linked to the health of our planet. From the products we use to the energy we consume, we strive to modernize our health delivery system in ways that promote a healthy environment and make higher quality care more accessible at a lower cost.
Human Trafficking Response
Human trafficking is a global issue, and anyone from any country can become a victim. Dignity Health has developed the Human Trafficking Response Program to ensure that trafficked persons are identified in the health care setting and provided care and services that will help put them on the path to recovery.
At Dignity Health, we believe that innovation is more than just creating new technologies; it’s about collaboration with new systems, processes, and technology working together to transform health care delivery for all. We strive to ensure that all patients, regardless of age, income, race, coverage status, and health status, get access to and benefit from those innovations.
Through our co-leadership of the Medicaid Transformation Project, we are advancing care for the Medicaid population by scaling digital innovations for these communities. We are partnering with other health systems to address the needs of this vulnerable population in the areas of behavioral health, substance use disorders, women and infant care, and avoidable emergency department visits.
Dignity Health’s mission to provide compassionate, high-quality, affordable health services is tightly woven through every aspect of our daily work and touches every caregiver, staff member, and employee. Throughout the organization, our Standards for Mission Integration help us assess how our values are put into day-to-day practice.
Dignity Health is focused on caring for the whole person—mind, body, and spirit—and on finding new ways to improve the consumer experience. We leverage technology as an integral part of the patient journey to address each patient’s individualized needs and concerns.
Patient safety is an integral part of our operations, and we're proud of our efforts. We believe that every patient is entitled to compassionate and professionally competent care delivered with respect for individual dignity.
Population Health Management
As part of our robust, data-driven population health management strategy, we have developed an integrated care management platform to help implement standardized care models across clinically integrated networks. We support the integrated solution through network development, implementation of payer risk contracts, alignment of clinical solutions and analytics and technology.
The Precision Medicine Alliance, in partnership with Catholic Health Initiatives, is the largest community-based precision medicine program in the country. The alliance offers our patients faster and more accurate diagnostic and treatment protocols based on their genetic and molecular profile information.
Social Determinants of Health
Social Determinants of health are the conditions in which people live, learn, work and grow that can affect one’s health. Dignity Health is dedicated to making a positive impact on the social determinants by giving local non-profit partners the resources they need to serve the underserved and improve their community's health and quality of life.
Value Based Care
Dignity Health is committed to a future of value-based care. Through a value-based payment system, we strive to improve quality and efficiency and demonstrate value to our patients and the communities we serve.
At Dignity Health, we work to prevent stress and burnout among our clinical staff by promoting a culture of resilience. By identifying contributing factors, we have instituted mechanisms and processes to ensure a strong and successful workforce.
