Health Plan uses Connect Oregon platform to facilitate integrated healthcare services

EUGENE, Ore., Aug. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Trillium Community Health Plan (Trillium) is proud to announce its partnership with Unite Us, a leading technology company connecting health and social care services, to further enhance the health plan's ability to collaborate with providers and local community-based organizations to provide integrated healthcare services for Oregon Health Plan (OHP) members in Lane, western Linn, western Douglas, Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington counties.

The Connect Oregon network, powered by Unite Us, is a coordinated care network of health and social service providers. Partners in the network are connected through the Unite Us Platform, an integrated, HI-TRUST-certified social care infrastructure helping providers and community-based organizations address social determinants of health and advance health equity. Trillium's care managers and member services staff will use the Connect Oregon network to efficiently coordinate care for OHP members, ensuring their access to needed services and supports.

"At Trillium, we are committed to ensuring our members have access to equitable, culturally sensitive care that addresses their whole health. This can mean helping members schedule preventive check-ups with their primary care providers; referring them to organizations that have safe, stable housing options; or connecting them with agencies that provide free or low-cost meal delivery services," said Sarah Brewer, Plan President and CEO, Trillium Community Health Plan. "Through the Connect Oregon network, we can facilitate engagement with a variety of services for our members while actively collaborating with our provider and community partners to assist if more care is needed along the way."

In alignment with Trillium's health equity strategy, the health plan will analyze metrics from the platform to track health outcomes and inform future partnerships and initiatives designed to invest resources where they are most needed, continuing to transform community health for all Oregonians.

"The collective goal of our partnership with Trillium Community Health Plan is to effectively increase equitable access to care for Oregonians regardless of circumstance," said Celia Higueras, State Network Director at Unite Us. "Trillium and Unite Us will work together to redefine the quality, impact, and intersection of health and social care across this community."
