The Delta Center recognizes the important role state and national associations play in supporting community health centers, which serve over 28 million people, and community behavioral health providers, which serve over 10 million people nationwide. The ultimate aim of the Delta Center is to cultivate health policy and a care system that are both more equitable and better meet the needs of individuals and families.
Delta Center goals are to:
- Foster collaboration and collective action between primary care and behavioral health at the national, state, and local levels.
- Build the knowledge & ability of state associations to ensure that changes in incentives and care systems meet the goals and needs of individuals and families.
- Elevate insights for the field and for state and national decision makers to influence systems change.
The Delta Center for a Thriving Safety Net (Delta Center) was launched in January 2018 with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and is led by JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. (JSI). The Delta Center brings together strategic partners including The Center for Accelerating Care Transformation (ACT Center) at Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute, Families USA, the National Association for Community Health Centers (NACHC), and the National Council for Mental Wellbeing (National Council). In the first phase of the project, the Center for Care Innovations (CCI) was also a partner.
