Kim Miller Presents on Population Health at Estes Park Institute FRANCISCO — The future of health care delivery and the opportunities health systems have to improve community wellness was the theme of a powerful address given by Beaver Dam Community Hospitals, Inc. (BDCH) President and CEO Kim Miller at the Estes Park Institute on Oct. 30 in San Francisco.

The conference is organized and presented by health system leaders and innovators to help educate health care executives, professionals, trustees, board members and policy experts on the emerging trends shaping health care delivery in the United States. More than 200 people representing 17 states and 43 health systems participated.

Invited to share her keen insight into the evolving health care landscape, Miller discussed the challenges and opportunities that are presenting themselves and how we need to change the way we view health and wellness.

“The hospital of the future in in the community, not the facility,” Miller said, using data and engaging photos to share the story of Dodge County’s people and places. Miller discussed Beaver Dam Community Hospital’s role in shaping the future of health and wellness in Dodge County in the wake of the 2013 Dodge Jefferson Healthier Community Partnership Community Health Assessment.

Her passion for population health helped inspire a vision where Dodge County would become the healthiest in Wisconsin. She told the Estes Park Institute audience that this vision led to the implementation of Healthy Communities, Healthy Lives, a local group of dedicated regional stakeholders, business leaders, elected officials, physicians and fitness enthusiasts who came together to find ways to collaboratively implement strategies that promote better living through shared responsibility and enhanced opportunity.

That effort created much-needed momentum, and BDCH later took advantage of an opportunity to spearhead and sponsor the first Blue Zones Project initiative in Wisconsin, which kicked off in Beaver Dam, Horicon, Juneau and Mayville in April 2017.

“We are on a path to strengthen Dodge County, and our future is bright,” Miller said. “We know we have a lot of work ahead of us, but the level of interest and engagement we’ve already seen from so many of our region’s residents has us confident our efforts will be very successful."
