Mothering Asheville Scorecard

This Scorecard is a web-based platform for tracking and communicating the work of Mothering Asheville (previously the Buncombe County Community Centered Health Home). 

Components include:

RESULTS—the conditions of health and wellbeing we envision and are collectively working to achieve;

INDICATORS—the measures of population health and wellness we are using to track our progress towards achieving these results, often with a particular focus on differences in conditions and outcomes among groups (disparities). We are working to "turn the curve on" these measures to contribute to greater equity;

STRATEGIES—the overarching sets of activities we undertake to create changes to help achieve our results; and

PERFORMANCE MEASURES—the measures of the quality and impact of our efforts, which we learn by asking "how much" we did, "how well" we did it, and whether "anyone is better off?"

What We Do

By 2027, we plan to eliminate disparities in infant mortality in Buncombe County, changing the current 2015 data indicating that African-American babies die at 3.1 times the rate of White babies. To drive and sustain this change, we will engage community members and organizations and health care providers and administrators to advocate for institutional policies that address structural racism, implicit bias, access to care, and social determinants of health. In collaboration with community leaders, we will promote increased access to preventive services in community-based settings (particularly for African- American women of childbearing age) and create systemic change in the way that women in Asheville access and utilize care.
