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. The OCH 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.
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. The Board’s vision for transformation is:
- Accessible, patient-centered healthcare system that effectively integrates physical, behavioral and dental health services
- Effective linkages between primary care, social services and other community-based service providers
- Common data metrics and shared information exchange
- Provider adoption of value-based care contracts
OCH’s regional health improvement project is a tri-county Opioid Response Coordination project.
