Role in the Community

Community Health Leadership

We champion the Healthcare Quadruple Aim: improve individual patient care, health equity, and population health outcomes while reducing costs.

Connector and Information Hub

The Coalition connects individuals, providers, community partners, media, insurers, and other stakeholders. By developing strategic partnerships, collecting data, and coordinating information flow with social services, we build a stronger primary and specialty care delivery network.

Primary Care and Patient Advocacy

The strength of Portland’s safety net comes from the diverse array of medical groups and community organizations that serve low-income populations. The Coalition brings together our collective strengths and missions to impact public policy and the social determinants of health.

Building Capacity and Sustainability

Coalition-operated centralized programs maximize limited clinic staff time and funding, and allow clinic groups to focus on patient care.
