CCOs are challenged to address the needs of OHP members that extend beyond traditional clinical interventions in order to truly address the community‐level determinants of health and equity.
FamilyCare’s presentation demonstrates its innovative approach to addressing the needs of its members through operational improvements and unique community partnerships.
