Our Region Wide Vision

In our region every person, regardless of background, life experience, or environment, will live a productive, high quality life, with access to stable housing, nutritious food, transportation, education, meaningful employment that pays the bills with some left over for savings, and social support networks that foster emotional, social, and psychological wellbeing. Each person’s health will be supported by an integrated community health system, accountable to improving health through delivering culturally competent, whole person care. 

At our July Leadership Council meeting we debuted an updated vision statement drafted by BHT staff, looking for feedback and truthing on our vision to be included in our ACH's Phase 2 Certification Process. 

Thank you to everyone who gave feedback during the leadership council meeting, or through the survey we sent out. With the work we are trying to accomplish being so expansive, it sure is hard to define a "short and succinct" vision, but with your help wordsmithing we are feeling pretty happy with what we came up with. 

If you'd like to follow our process, you can see comments we received on our vision statement here, and a redlined word doc showing the changes we made in response to feedback

Medicaid Demonstration Toolkit Overview

To the best of our abilities in a 45 minute time slot, at our 1/25/17 Leadership Council meeting, Alison gave an overview of the projects outlined in the Medicaid Demonstration Toolkit. This Toolkit is open for public comment until 5PM February 2nd, we strongly encourage you to get together with some peers (it's 78 pages...), explore the listed projects, and make a public comment to the Health Care Authority. BHT is also requesting feedback on our regions interest and readiness in these projects in a survey below. We will post any feedback we share, or receive from the community on our blog. Here are some useful links from our discussion:

In response to feedback from our January 25th meeting, we are attempting to schedule more opportunities to deep dive into the toolkit. Stay tuned. In the meantime, BHT staff are available for questions.
