Committee for Healthcare Improvement

The Committee for Healthcare Improvement (CHI) is the committee of Health Action focused on promoting person-centered health care for every person in Sonoma County. CHI is a coalition of healthcare providers and community health partners across Sonoma County who are leading healthcare system improvement.

CHI seeks to reflect a diverse representation of organizations and people who have a stake in improving health in our community, including:

  • Healthcare providers from hospitals, community health centers, public health, and professional health organizations
  • Public and private health insurers
  • Health care purchasers, such as employers
  • Patients, consumers, caregivers, and patient advocacy groups
  • Local government health leaders, such as Sonoma County Health Officer
  • Community-based health and human services organizations that provide and/or support primary care services, community-based prevention, and patient care coordination.
