Olympic Community of Health (OCH) is an accountable community of health ( ACH), one of nine in the state, designed to be able to address the major health priorities in our region, focusing on health equity and social determinants of health.
We do this through three main objectives: improving the health of the population while also improving the patient experience of care and reducing health care costs.
Our region includes Clallam, Jefferson and Kitsap Counties as well as the Sovereign Nations of the Hoh, Jamestown S’Klallam, Lower Elwha Klallam, Makah, Port Gamble S’Klallam, Quileute and Suquamish Tribes (see below).
The OCH Board of Directors consists of leaders from tribal nations and health sectors. Together they strive to steward a participatory process to identify the greatest areas of need and sustainably align resources and services to achieve the highest attainable level of health and well-being for all members of our communities.
We are currently focusing our efforts on five regional health priority areas:
Our first regional health improvement project is a tri-county Opioid Response Coordination project.
