Aligning in Action: Yamhill Community Care Organization
This Aligning in Action case study explores Yamhill Community Care Organization’s (YCCO) best practices for effectively aligning systems to meaningfully impact health inequities in Yamhill County, Oregon.
The case study examines how communities that describe their work as aligning systems are doing it around four core components of a theory of change that the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Georgia Health Policy Center are testing: purpose, governance, data, and sustainable financing mechanisms.
YCCO coordinates care for enrollees in the Oregon Health Plan (Medicaid) in Yamhill County and parts of surrounding. Founded in 2012, the YCCO aligns its organizational goals with multi-sector, community, and government partners using a collective impact framework to address social problems.
