              1 Highlight examples where they exist - to the press; to providers; to medical and nursing and other education programs.

              2 Some countries are adopting a Gross Happiness Index -- sounds corny but maybe if we started measuring how happy our
                communities are by some measure; it will give us the will to make the changes necessary.

              3 Engage more of the physicians who are not card carrying members of the establishment health care industry to speak their
                minds about the injustices they see in our systems and in some of th eindividuals within our health industry and environment.

              4 The system is part of the problem. Slow and elephantine; it is unlikely to be able to identify what is needed for change. We need
                challenges from outside; but then need to respond; rather than just react.


              6 Continue pressuring Medicaid HMOs to deliver as promised. Increase funding to LHDs to police Medicaid providers. Expose
                private health insurance for what it is.

              9 Identify discriminatory policies and bring them to the attention of the entire state of Wisconsin. Work on eliminating these policies
                and replace them with those that will assure the equal distribution of resources for all. Demonstrate that we mean business and
                that we are determined to challenge the status quo.


              11 continue to pull together those that are working on the ground in our communities to gather the information of what is happening
                 and what is needed state wide. Only those that are working the situation know the truth. Continue the listening session model
                 used for this plan!

              12 Making this component an economic imperative.


              14 In my opinion the will is already a knew factor. Everyone wants whats best for themselves; their family; and their community--it's
                 the resources to create the needed changes that are lacking. An example in the resource area can be something as small as
                 having someone to instigate and motivate the community for change.

              15 I would suggest utilizing a model program with community input in a small geographical area (such as an urban zip code) to pilot
                 implementation; celebrate small successes and gradually expand/change with input from each community. This effort will have to
                 entail resources and a will at the state level in order to be successful.

              16 define the system - be concrete and specific about your reach and identify those where will and resources have already been
                 garnered; build on this.

              20 What system is being transformed? The health care system has extraodinary resources that need to be redirected toward
                 healthy outcomes. Access to the health care system is a key priority for the state.

              25 talk about what is a basic human right - translate that to economic stability; health care; education. People have to understand
                 that if you value people having basic human rights then there is an associated cost and expectation carried with that. Otherwise
                 you are saying some people deserve care & help while other do not.

                                                                  Lifeline Question 3

        Should a 10-year state health plan have an “aspirational―   objective such as eliminating racism or should the plan have objectives that can be
               accomplished within 10 years (e.g.; restoring jobs; affordable health care; educational systems that develop critical thinking skills)?

                                                                            Lifeline Question 3
         1 No - health is a community affair but not a state health plan goal; aspiration or any other such thing. It is government and legislative
           responsibility; not one that is a model for current thinking about health.

         2 Focus on the concrete - affordable health care etc. If you adopt the aspirational objective; you'll still need to articulate how you're going to
           measure the improvement in a concrete way.

         3 State health plan should have acheivable objectives rather than aspirational ones.

         4 Be operational in the short term; forward thinking in the long term. (Badger Care Core Plus was a lovely idea; but it was clear from the
           beginning that it had a short expansion life. Make a fuss! Why should people who need this service be left on a wait list!

         5 Concrete objectives that can be accomplished within ten years are critical to enhance the chances of success in funding. It is far easier to
           obtain public sector funding when the funding entity can see specific measureable outcomes and realize value for the money. Overarching
           vision statements are nice; but are too ephemeral for politicians to anchor funding to.
         6 accomplishable 10-year objectives

         7 I think it should have clear objective that can be spelled out leading to an aspirational vision statement to everyone can buy into the vision and
           clearly see how their individual work on the objecties ties into the larger goal(s).

         9 It is about time we address the issue of racism. It can not wait any longer. Economic justice; racial equality and caring communities are the
           best medicines of all.


        11 I believe we should have some over arching goals that are aspirational that we can build our 10 year goals off of.

        12 Absolutely as far as the eliminating racism!

        13 These are all critical issues; and issues that need to be addressed. It's my belief that the state health plan is addressing each of these
           overarching issues is some way through each of the provisional objectives. I'm not sure this needs to be addressed separately.

        14 have goals and objectives that can be accomplished in 10 years...again not just solving problems; but focusing on health promotion and
           prevention programs that target the lifespan

        15 We are setting ourselves up for failure to aspire to eliminate racism. This should not be an objective; but could be included as part of a vision
           statement. Elimination of health disparities would achieve a lot toward reduction of racism. I would suggest targeting achievable goals as
           you mention (jobs; health care costs; education).

        16 both; in the sense that the long term goal is stated; and the objectives that in your informed opinion can be accomplished within 10 years
           should be delivered in the context of how they advance you toward the long term aspiration.

        17 Aspirational objectives are good as a long term definition of a goal. However; to get there concrete and realisitc objectives should be defined;
           implemented and measured within 10 years.

        18 I think the place for the aspirational is in the vision. Objectives should be clear; measureable and achievable (sounds like a textbook!).
           That's not to say that they shouldn't stretch us some or even a lot; but given we are working as a system; and we want everyone to take part
           and grab a piece and run with it; it seems like if we want to achieve it; we should have the map to get there.
        19 It should have both over-arching goals and measurable objectives.

        20 The health plan should have aspirational objectives related to quality of life of all citizens; with particular attention to the poor of all races;
           people with significant disabilities and frail elders; and people (such as young adults) without access to health care. All parts of the health
           care system should be challenged to overcome the barriers to good health among these populations.

        21 Maybe both. Over the next ten years; we may see economic growth as quickly as we saw the decline and all these suggested
           components/interests/targets are important.

        22 Maybe at a long-term goal; but you really need to work on having realistic steps over the next 10 years that will help us get closer to that type
           of goal; but not have the expectation to solve that goal.

        23 The 10 year plan should always have a goal of eliminating racism in all of it's many forms.

        24 I believe that the aspirational objective is a great idea; as we all know that if we could eliminate it; we would have a more fair and equitable
           health care system and also equal opportunities for all people in our state!
