The SCAN Foundation Linkage Lab: The Camarillo Health Care District

Part of a six-part series of Linkage Lab case studies developed by The SCAN Foundation, this Success Story highlights how the Camarillo Health Care District (the District) was able to successfully participate within a community-based organization (CBO) network to contract additional services to health care entities, including a national managed care organization.

The District is a public agency located in Camarillo, California that serves the residents of Pleasant Valley and surrounding areas. As a CBO, the District strives to meet the health and wellness needs of the community by promoting, coordinating and managing quality, affordable health-related services. The District provides a range of services for older adults, caregivers and children in order to fulfill this mission.

This California based CBO was striving to meet two essential needs: to deepen relationships with health care organizations and to build stronger links with other CBOs that would serve patients discharged from acute care settings (such as skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities), so it could collaborate to create integrated care transition standards and practices in Ventura County, CA.

Check out the full Success Story to see how the District was able to identify additional opportunities with accountable care organizations and local hospitals to provide transitional care services, case management and evidence-based chronic disease programs through its experience with Linkage Lab.
