░░░░░░░░░░░░░░PLEASE TAKE OUR REGIONAL SURVEY ░░░░░░░░░░░░░


Good Afternoon:

We need your help! We are seeking information that will lead to the potential nomination and future funding of innovative and evidence-based projects in your region that improve health.

On January 9, 2017, Washington State received approval of the Medicaid Transformation Project from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for $1.125 billion.  The demonstration will provide incentive payments to providers tied to projects coordinated by Accountable Communities of Health (ACH), based on achievement of milestones and outcomes.

How can you help? We invite your feedback to choose high impact projects/initiatives in our region that will help our residents receive more effective healthcare.

We would appreciate your help in completing this survey by Monday, May 8, 2017.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me (cmoser@greatercolumbiaach.org or 509-546-8933), Aisling Fernandez (afernandez@greatercolumbiaach.org or 509-546-8934) or Wes Luckey (wluckey@greatercolumbiaach.org or 509-546-8931).

Thank you,

Carol Moser

Executive Director

VISION:  The Greater Columbia Region is a vibrant, healthy community in which all individuals, regardless of their circumstances, have the ability to achieve their highest potential.


MISSION:  The mission of the Greater Columbia ACH is to advance the health of our population by decreasing health disparities, improving efficiency of health care delivery, and empowering individuals and communities through collaboration, innovation, and engagement.


Welcome to Greater Columbia Accountable Community of Health!

As you can see, Greater Columbia ACH encompasses a diverse geographic region of southern and southeast Washington, from the crest of the Cascade Mountains in the west to the Blue Mountains and Idaho border in the east. Our upland areas are forested while the lowland valleys of the Columbia, Snake, Yakima and Walla Walla Rivers provide an agricultural bounty to the state.


How do you address the health issues in an area so large and diverse?


By bringing people together who have a passion and a commitment to improving the conditions in which our citizens live, improving access to services, and understanding what the data can tell us about our population.


We invite you to embark on this journey towards better health with us.
