Regional Community Advisory Council Holds First Meeting

Columbia Pacific CCO's Regional Community Advisory Council (CAC) held its first meeting on Aug. 9, 2013 to discuss its charter.

The council is compiling data from the local advisory councils and chooses three health indicators it would like to see changed regionwide. The council then will recommend to the CCO governing board a health improvement plan to address health indicators for the region.

The Regional Community Advisory Council brings together the work of the four CACs established in the different communities supported by Columbia Pacific CCO. The council will meet again in late fall to review local community needs assessment results and to determine the recommendations on health indicators/disparities it will make to the CCO. Ultimately, there will be a single regional plan for Columbia Pacific CCO.
