Building connections for a healthier Oregon and Southwest Washington
Connect Oregon is a coordinated care network of health and social care providers serving Oregon and Southwest Washington
Partners in the network are connected through a shared technology platform, Unite Us, which enables them to send and receive electronic referrals, address people’s social needs, and improve health across communities.
As a Connect Oregon partner, you can:
Every time we get a referral in Unite Us and are able to connect people who need nutritional support with meals is a success. Early on, we got a referral from Kaiser Permanente for a patient discharged from the hospital with COVID-19. Her husband, who also contracted COVID-19, died unexpectedly. When we delivered her meals, we called to tell her they were on her porch and checked in weekly. Once she was able to get back to cooking for herself, she told us she felt like it saved her life to have people checking in on her on a regular basis. This is the miracle of service. To serve our community best, we need partners like Unite Us to show us the people in need.
