Coalition of Community Health Clinics Services – Projects and Programs
CCHC supports the community clinics through grants and other funding. Clinic members benefit from support in areas such as medication assistance, access and referral, interpretive services, volunteer services and emergency preparedness.
The goal of the Access and Referral Program is to increase access to care and expand the capacity of the safety net system. The Coalition supports these efforts through a variety or programs
- Primary Care Referrals
- Information and Referral
Medication Access: The Pharmacy Bridge Program is a partnership between Providence Health Plan, Project Access NOW, and the Coalition. The program allows CCHC providers to prescribe medicines not stocked by clinics without cost to patients. Patients are able to use Providence network pharmacies including Fred Meyer, Walgreens and Costco to access their medicines. More Details
Interpretive Services Program: The goal of the Interpretive Services Program is to improve access to culturally and linguistically appropriate health services throughout Coalition Clinics and is made possible through a grant from PacificSource. The grant is dedicated to reducing barriers to health services by providing culturally appropriate interpretation services. More Details
Volunteer Management Support: Volunteers are a crucial component of service delivery in our clinics. Some Coalition clinics rely almost exclusively on volunteers to provide care and almost all clinics use volunteers in different capacities. Multnomah County Health Department
provides free indemnification for all medical professional volunteers that serve in a Coalition Clinic. More Details
The Health Information Technology Program improves the “system of care.” It enhances coordination between various health care settings, increases access, improves patient care, reduces the cost, and enhances the stability of community sponsored clinics. HIT ensures CSCs have opportunity to engage in federal and state health information exchange initiatives. Prevent digital divide … and greater health disparities.
The Coalition provides planning and technical assistance to safety net clinics in six counties in Oregon (Region 1). The purpose is to design a regional response plan that increases the clinics’ capacity to mobilize in order to provide a surge in services during a large-scale emergency. We are working closely with hospitals, local health departments, and government and private providers to formulate strategies for resource sharing and communications during emergencies. Funding for this project is provided by the Hospital Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and is administered through the Northwest Oregon Health Preparedness Organization (HPO). More Details
