The Fannie E. Rippel Foundation is a catalyst to promote new ways of thinking and innovative solutions to address the complex and growing challenges of our health system. With the simultaneous goals of better health, better care and lower costs, the Foundation actively engages leaders in and outside the sector who take a systems-based approach to health and health care re-design. We work actively with them to explore and implement innovative initiatives and action-research projects to improve health outcomes for all Americans.
Our goal is to seed innovation by spearheading pioneering models that have the power to shake the ground of our health system, addressing our most challenging and pressing issues by shifting perspectives, relationships and processes. In this way, the Foundation honors the intent of its donor, the values of its leaders, and its mission of addressing health issues related to cancer, heart disease, women, the elderly, and our nation’s hospitals.
The Foundation fulfills this commitment to fostering change through our flagship initiative, ReThink Health, which provides knowledge and tools to support local leaders in their efforts to innovate.
Better health, better care, lower costs. Transformation through redesign. Systems thinking by leaders collaborating across boundaries. National purpose, local action.
