We work in partnership with healthcare providers to advance whole-person health, health equity, and community health.
We bring deep expertise in health equity, systems modeling, value-based payment structures, and policy.
We bring everyone to the table, connect the organizations that can bridge gaps in services, and link relevant data for partners. We also provide limited loans to smaller healthcare organizations to help with workforce development and operations and aim to expand medical education opportunities for people of color.
Our principal healthcare partners include health systems, care providers (physical, mental, dental, pediatric, adolescent), Centers for Medicaid and Medicare, Tacoma Pierce County Health Department, Washington Health Care Authority, and managed care organizations.
Our support to healthcare partners includes:
Operations support such as training on conversion to electronic patient records
Care traffic control through the Care Continuum Network to make closed loop referrals, reduce emergency department use, and address social determinants of health
Training on substance use disorder services, behavioral health supports, motivational interviewing, domestic violence education, etc.
Workforce development including employee salary supplementation and training for community health workers
