OCHIN is excited to share with our members, partners, and staff the Fiscal Year End 2016 Annual Report. Below is an excerpt from our report, which begins with a letter from our CEO, Abby Sears.
In 2016, we continued to see rapid change in the health care industry. For many of us, and the populations we serve, there remains uncertainty as to what lies ahead. In this time of flux, one constant is clear: your unwavering commitment to provide the best care possible to the communities you serve
There is opportunity in change, and OCHIN has been—and will continue to be—a leader in innovation. There are also things we expect to remain, such as the need for high value health care and for knowledge solutions to improve quality and outcomes. Across the OCHIN collaborative, we are seeing improved outcomes as you deliver higher quality, coordinated care to the underserved.
We understand the challenges you face, and we appreciate the great work you do every day. It could not be more important than it is right now, and we are proud to work alongside each of you. We will continue to advocate for and work toward policies and programs that will improve the health of the most vulnerable patients in our health care system and reduce costs.
2016 was a year of rapid growth for OCHIN and the expansion of services we offer to support you. I look forward to our continued success as we work together toward a stronger, more viable health care system, and improved health for the communities we serve. Thanks for all that you do.
