Capital Area Health Alliance

The Capital Area Health Alliance (CAHA) is a regional hub for organizations with interest in health and health care. Since its inception, CAHA has convened community conversations to understand and address healthcare system trends, regional needs and opportunities for improvement. The Alliance provides an inclusive platform on which competing organizations and multiple sectors can collaborate. CAHA connects providers engaged in the work of health care with organizations working at the community level to support innovative approaches to improve the health of the entire community and to bring resources and educational opportunities to employers, businesses and area residents.


CAHA 2019/2020 Focus

CAHA is taking a deep dive into “Whole Person Care,” recognizing that the best way to care for people is to consider their full spectrum of needs—medical, behavioral, and socioeconomic, and “Readiness for Care,” including preparation for leadership, clinical reasoning and critical thinking skills, dynamic health systems, and coaching new generations of nurses. As we take this deep dive, we are intentionally examining how racism creates health inequities and building our capacity to address these inequities throughout our work.

                                                                                                  


What CAHA Members are Saying

"CAHA's role as a coordinating body...assures healthcare needs of the community are met and changes in healthcare policy and provision of care are planned for. More than any one healthcare organization alone, CAHA combines the strength of all members of the organization to give us greater ability to provide for the healthcare needs of the community."

"CAHA is an organization that allows competing agencies to work together and achieve mutual goals that benefit our communities. CAHA provides connectivity and pathways of communication that enable all of us to offer services that enhance the health and well-being of the people of the tri-county region."

"[CAHA brings] organizations together and bring[s] opportunities for developing joint programs, services, educational endeavors, and the promotion of healthy lifestyles. CAHA has been the leader in the region for healthy lifestyles."
