The Sacramento Region Health Care Partnership worked to improve the region’s safety net health care system in El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties.
We launched the Health Care Partnership in 2011 in response to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the anticipated influx of 227,500 newly insured residents. Health care leaders in the region approached the foundation to play a key intermediary and convener role in the building of a 21st century patient care and coordination system for the medically underserved. This was seen as an unprecedented opportunity to rethink, revitalize and reform the Sacramento Region’s health care system.
Conducted by John Snow, Inc., the 2017 market analysis looked at the Sacramento region’s primary care safety net between 2012 and 2016, and how the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act changed the health care landscape in the Sacramento Region.
The Health Care Partnership’s work then focused on strengthening the capacity of community health centers in the Sacramento Region through the Community Health Center Capacity Building Program, a three-year, $3 million investment to institute changes in the region’s health care delivery system to improve the primary care safety net.
