We organize our work around three main goals:
Goal 1. Improving Access to Coverage and Care
We advance statewide policies and practices that ensure all Californians with low incomes can get the care they need when they need it. We support efforts to expand access to affordable coverage and to strengthen the Medi-Cal program. We are also helping to foster delivery system transformation and workforce solutions that increase the capacity of safety-net organizations to provide timely, high-quality, and patient-centered care.
Goal 2. Promoting High-Value Care
We focus on providing high-quality care to people enrolled in Medi-Cal, with grantmaking structured around improvements in how that care is delivered. Our work aims to support people with mental illness and substance use disorder; people who are pregnant and have recently given birth; people with serious illness or approaching the end of life; and people experiencing homelessness.
Goal 3. Laying the Foundation
We invest in people, knowledge, and networks that help to make meaningful change possible in California’s health care system.
- Market Analysis and Insight: We provide research and analysis so decisionmakers have a market-wide view of California’s complex health care ecosystem.
- High-Quality Health Journalism: We support health journalism so that Californians have access to timely, relevant information about the most pressing health care issues.
- Building Leadership: We help to develop the leadership and skills of California’s health care professionals, state policy partners, and safety-net organizations to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.
- Bridging the Innovation Gap: We support information, networks, and communications platforms that enable safety-net organizations and entrepreneurs to work together to improve the delivery system.
