ARCHI IN CONTEXT
ARCHI is driving a movement that unites community perspective with institutional action to accelerate health improvement. We believe health is a state of being, a destination, a culture.
ARCHI IN ACTION
ARCHI was founded by individuals and organizations committed to upstream, cross-sector work. We use a cutting edge dynamic systems model that helps stakeholders determine the interventions that will create the greatest benefit at the lowest cost.
In 2012, over 70 stakeholders gathered to analyze data about the health system in Fulton and DeKalb Counties and consider the disparate health status of residents.
Using the ReThink Health, dynamic systems model they considered a range of potential interventions and investment strategies—the Atlanta Transformation Scenario, emerged as the most effective way to produce a lasting improvement in health status while increasing the region’s economic vitality.

The imperatives were evident, the ambition was endless. Could we come together and mutually reinforce each other’s work with greater impact? Since ARCHI’s founding, over 70 organizations representing a wide range of disciplines have pledged their support and are working toward ARCHI’s goals.
