Trillium Awards Transformation Grants

Trillium Community Health Plan, the Coordinated Care Organization (CCO) in Lane County, is awarding one million dollars in Transformation Grants to assist in innovative programs that will help create a new system of healthcare. Grant recipients were selected based on their organizations ability to demonstrate the proposed program was both innovative and transformative.

 

Organizations were invited to submit proposals that met the objectives laid out in Trillium’s Transformation Investment application. The investment application included questions such as the issue or problem the funding request would address; how funding the project supports the objectives of the triple aim and a list of unique or innovative project elements. Additionally, the applying agency was asked to demonstrate anticipated benefits and pitfalls, agency mission and objectives, success criteria and the number of Oregon Health Plan members currently served, along with future projections of members served as a result of the project.

 

“We were pleased with the number of proposals we received,” says Terry Coplin, Trillium CEO. “Grant requests far surpassed the one million dollars we budgeted.”
