Here, you will find information about our efforts towards improving health care access for our communities through our member health centers and clinics. These health centers and clinics are integral to our region’s health care safety net, as they provide culturally and linguistically appropriate health care to all, regardless of income or health coverage status.
The Community Health Partnership is a policy advocacy organization with a clear mission: to advocate for affordable, accessible health services for our region’s diverse communities, and assist our health centers and clinics in achieving these goals.
Hand in hand with our clinic membership, we are leveraging opportunities from the Affordable Care Act to expand health care access and streamline the continuity of care our patients receive. To this end, our priorities have included:
- Educating and facilitating enrollment into the Low Income Health Program
- Assisting our health centers with moving towards Patient Centered Health Home recognition
- Advocating for a regional integrated system of health care
- Educating key decision makers about our integral role in the delivery of healthcare to the safety net population through a medical home
Consistent with all great endeavors, our work requires collaboration and support. We are thankful to our funders and key partners such as the County of Santa Clara, the California Primary Care Association (CPCA), and the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) who share our vision for an integrated health care delivery system that is affordable and accessible to all communities.
