What is Systems for Action?

Systems for Action (S4A) is a signature research program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) that builds a Culture of Health by rigorously testing new ways of connecting the nation’s fragmented medical, social, and public health systems. The program supports research teams from across the U.S. in conducting scientific studies that evaluate the implementation and impact of novel approaches to systems alignment. The system alignment mechanisms we study take many forms, including shared governance models, platforms for data exchange and integration, bundled and blended payment models, and cross-cutting workforce components such as navigators and integrators. The National Program Office for S4A is based in the Colorado School of Public Health, University of Colorado, within the Health Systems, Management & Policy Department.
