Building the Foundation for a Healthier,
More Equitable Community

 We’re building a unified community information exchange (CIE) to enable care coordination between health, behavioral health, tribal, community and social service organizations in King County, WA.

It will enable organizations to send, receive and follow up on electronic referrals, increase access to resources via a shared directory, and provide visibility of other organizations providing care.

Today’s system of health and human services is fragmented and disconnected. It isn’t easy to find the right resources, refer people to services, track if those services were received, or understand who else might be providing care and support.

Our goal is to assure that no matter what door someone enters, they get the whole-person care and support they need to be healthy and thrive.

Local community-based organizations, clinical providers and community members are collaboratively co-designing the network and its policies, with a focus on health equity.

The Connect2 Community Network is governed by a multi-sector Advisory Group and will operate as a community-owned resource accessible to all who opt to participate.

Our Approach

Focus on Equity

Reducing health disparities and improving outcomes is the driving force behind our solutions and decisions.
