At Trillium, we know all healthcare is local. That’s why we’re committed to addressing the unique needs of our communities. We invest in programs and services that help people be healthy and happy by focusing on prevention, health equity, and access to high-quality care.
Our Trillium staff are proud members of the communities we serve. We’re dedicated to transforming the lives of our members through our investments in local partnerships and sponsorships designed to improve health outcomes.
Live Healthy Lane is a community-based effort to improve the health and well-being of those who live, learn, work, and play in the Lane County Region. Live Healthy Lane unites Lane Community Health Council, Lane County Public Health, PeaceHealth, Trillium Community Health Plan, and United Way of Lane County to reduce health disparities, promote health equity, and improve overall population health. Together we work on the Community Health Assessment (CHA), which explores and identifies health issues in Lane County. The CHA creates an opportunity to improve the health of our community by informing the Regional Community Health Improvement Plan (CHP).
The CHP is an action-oriented plan with goals to:
- increase economic and social opportunities
- increase health behaviors to improve health and well-being
- strengthen cross-sector collaborations
Trillium is collaborating with local community partners to develop a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) so we can best improve the lives of those who live, work, and play in the Tri-County area.
Working closely with the Oregon Health Equity Alliance, Healthy Columbia Willamette Collaborative, Health Share of Oregon, and other community partners, we will identify specific strategies for improving health equity in the Tri-County communities.
To develop our plan and ensure we meet the needs of minority and diverse Oregon Health Plan/Medicaid members, we will:
- Assess community need through input from local stakeholders
- Jointly establish community health and equity priorities
- Identify shared solutions
- Fund training and initiatives for providers and community members
- Track outcomes for continuous quality improvement
We will share details of our progress throughout the year.
