The Sacramento Region Health Care Partnership is working 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. Learn more.
The Affordable Care Act increased health insurance coverage significantly and exceeded predictions in the region.
Access to care and appropriate utilization of the health system continue to challenge newly insured Medi-Cal populations.
Primary care needs more time and capacity building to meet demand.
These are some of the findings from our report, Sacramento Region Health Care Partnership: Market Analysis Findings and Key Opportunities.
Conducted by John Snow, Inc., the market analysis looks 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.
We hope this report will inspire further conversation and action by the region’s leaders to remain committed to expanding and strengthening the health care safety net.
We will host a webinar this spring to present and discuss the findings and what it means for our 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.
