PATH Collaborative

Health Improvement Partnership of Santa Cruz County

About the Collaborative Planning and
Implementation (CPI) Initiative

The CPI initiative provides funding for regional collaborative planning efforts to support the implementation of Enhanced Care Management (ECM) and Community Supports. 

The Santa Cruz County CPI group is composed of stakeholders that work together to identify, discuss, and resolve topical implementation issues, and share best practices. We identify how Providing Access and Transforming Health (PATH) and other CalAIM funding initiatives – including the Technical Assistance Marketplace – may be used to identify and address implementation and sustainability needs and gaps.

As the facilitator selected for the Santa Cruz County PATH Collaborative, HIP hosts and facilitates convenings, including our monthly Collaborative meetings as well as the Enhanced Care Management and Community Supports workgroup meetings. HIP works with participants to develop programmatic activities contributing to CalAIM’s whole system, a person-centered approach to care.
