Our Clinical Advisory Panel

The Columbia Pacific CCO Clinical Advisory Panel (CAP) is chartered to provide collective leadership from partner organizations for the clinical transformation work that will help Columbia Pacific achieve the Quadruple Aim.

The CAP will ensure Columbia Pacific’s clinical transformation efforts and priorities are strategically aligned with those of its constituent organizations, that these efforts have the active support of clinical and executive champions at the highest organizational level, and that success is increasingly driven by expanding the engagement in change initiatives throughout the delivery system in the CCO service area. 

The CAP is a separate committee of the Columbia Pacific CCO Governance structure, accountable to the CCO Board of Directors.
