A Path to Thriving (APT) builds on the promising work of the Colorado Association for School-Based Health Care (CASBHC) and its partners aiming to improve the quantity and quality of healthcare for Colorado’s vulnerable youth. APT is well-aligned with the Foundation’s vision, mission, beliefs, and cornerstones for achieving health equity. APT works to align and improve systems within and between health and educational sectors to create a continuum of education, prevention, and intervention so youth can overcome obstacles to health and have the opportunity to thrive in all aspects of life. CASBHC and Apex worked together to adapt and facilitate a continuous improvement process for administrative and clinical staff. Apex adapted Kaizen practices to make them relevant and feasible in an SBHC setting and applied a Systems Evaluation Protocol (SEP) developed at Cornell to ensure that APT design and implementation is grounded in data-based decision-making.
