Iowa Collaborative Safety Net Provider Network
Through collaboration, innovation, and advocacy, the Iowa Collaborative Safety Net Provider Network improves access to health services, quality of patient care, and the health of underserved patients in Iowa.
We advocate for a PATIENT CENTERED approach as the patient and their families are at the heart of everything we do.
We believe EVERYONE DESERVES ACCESS TO HEALTH SERVICES regardless of who they are, where they are, and their ability to pay.
We believe in EMPOWERING PATIENTS to make healthy choices and care decisions.We are committed to COLLABORATION with private and public health care organizations and other stakeholders across the continuum of care.
We endorse EVIDENCED-BASED DECISION MAKING as a means to improve access, quality and patient outcomes, and make health system improvements.
Many underserved, low-income Iowans turn to Iowa’s safety net providers for affordable primary and preventive health care. Through a unique partnership created in 2005 by the Iowa Legislature, the Iowa Collaborative Safety Net Provider Network (Network), Iowa’s health care safety net providers have united to identify common unmet needs that can be addressed cooperatively. The goals of the Network are as follows:
- Increase the underserved population’s access to health services.
- Increase health system integration and collaboration across the continuum of care with a focus on safety net services.
- Enhance the Iowa Collaborative Safety Net Provider Network’s communications and education efforts.
