The PHM Initiative Cohort

Our selection process was designed to improve patient lives in the present, while creating a model for the future

Kaiser Permanente, Department of Health Care Services, and California Primary Care Association worked together to identify a geography-based cohort of Community Health Centers to participate in the PHM Initiative based on the following considerations:​

Measures of quality and equity ​

Population size and geographic characteristics (rural, urban)​

Interest in value-based payment
