The Model of Health and Wellbeing (MHWB) is the common conceptual framework that guides our organizations and lays out our sector's foundational commitments.

This document describes how we measure the impact of our sector's work using the MHWB as our benchmark, and it presents research evidence from numerous sources which illustrate that the MHWB works. The research shows that our members deliver better health outcomes by making it easier to access preventive care and by expertly supporting the management of chronic health conditions; that they are helping to keep the health system sustainable by reducing hospitalizations and emergency department visits for clients with very complex health needs; that they are building communities and fostering a sense of belonging; and that they are delivering better experiences for both clients and providers.
