Integrated strategies for integrated care
What We Do
We quickly scale-up public health services and informational campaigns by helping communities recruit local partners, access capital, and utilize the best science and technology on the market.
Our one-to-one project management support provides the technical oversight and accountability needed to drive these networks toward shared goals.
In Fall 2020, we created WACOVID19 in partnership with DOH, to support first responders delivering COVID-19 testing. We built our first community test site in Pasco, WA in partnership with Benton-Franklin Health District, Pasco Fire Department, Greater Columbia ACH, Columbia Safety, University of Washington Laboratory Medicine, Solv Health, PS Media, and other local agencies. At its peak, the Pasco community test site would deliver care to 1000 residents per day. After getting the Pasco site up-and-running, the WACOVID19 team went on to help Yakima, Sunnyside, Vancouver, Seattle, Lynnwood, and Everett setup similar COVID-19 testing services.
We provide our partners with a 'menu' of technologies to choose from and the support needed to select the right vendor.
Working closely with local and state health jurisdictions, we vet and engage technology vendors, pilot test their products with community partners, advise vendors on process improvements, then scale and manage vendor services to meet community needs.
We created Learn to Return to provide free onsite and mobile COVID-19 testing for K-12 students in public, private, and tribal schools throughout Washington. We cultivated close partnerships with COVID-19 testing vendors to develop a menu of 10 different testing technologies that schools can access free of charge to stand-up robust, school-based diagnostic and screening programs.
We help our partners get access to the capital they need to get their public health services up-and-running.
The Impact Fund uses a transparent and equitable process to identify, support, and monitor community-based innovations in service and information delivery.
The African Leaders Health Board (ALHB) received funding to produce culturally and linguistically appropriate multimedia communications aimed at driving COVID-19 vaccine uptake in the communities they serve.
Building fully-integrated public health services is too complex and too costly to do alone. We connect our partners to facilitate the exchange of best practices and promote alignment across geographies and sectors.
We convened over 300 superintendents, staff, and other stakeholders in state education for a virtual event to discuss evolving testing strategies for COVID-19, learn about updated state guidance from top state officials, and explore ways that schools can drive vaccination uptake in their communities.
