Transforming Health Care in Whatcom County is an ongoing collaborative effort that includes area providers, insurance plans, business owners, elected officials and community members who are committed to the “triple aim”: improve population health outcomes; enhance the patient experience of care; and reduce the per capita cost. Facilitated by the Whatcom Alliance for Health Advancement (WAHA), participants are focused on meaningful system changes that require cooperation and result in greater accountability to each other and the community.
