Clinical Advisory Panel

Purpose: The Clinical Advisory Panel (CAP) brings together diverse local health care provider perspectives to advise on best clinical practice, health care quality and health information technology initiatives.  

Core Responsibilities: 

    • Inform regional health care quality improvement efforts.  
    • Support initiatives that improve population health, advance health system transformation, and that decrease the overall cost of care.  
    • Advise on the Marion-Polk CCO’s HIT Roadmap promoting health information technology adoption and utilization, and the advancement of new use cases. 

2023 Priorities:

    • Clinical Services & Access: Develop a regional strategy for increasing Hepatitis C screening and treatment rates.
    • Prevention, Education & Outreach: Raise awareness of how to prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and support consistent messaging across the family-serving continuum.
    • Strengthen the subcommittees under CAP including the Health Information Technology and Traditional Health Worker Collaboratives.

The CAP acts as the voice for healthcare providers in the Marion-Polk CCO region. Through an application process, members are selected on a rolling basis. Members are appointed for a two-year term.


  • Health Information Technology Collaborative: Brings together various community providers to advise on Health Information Exchange, Hospital Event Notification and Community Information Exchange adoption and utilization.
  • Traditional Health Worker Collaborative: Brings together local traditional health workers, health care providers, and community-based organizations to explore new ways to develop and support the workforce.
