About Idaho Health Partners
Idaho Health Partners is a joint project between Panhandle Health District, Kootenai Health and Heritage Health. Through Idaho Health Partners, the three organizations work together to connect patients with primary care providers and community resources. Together they are enhancing and expanding access to health care for people in northern Idaho.
Idaho Health Partners and its member organizations have been instrumental in the development of the Northern Idaho Crisis Center. Other work includes two primary care practices in Post Falls and Rathdrum, and increased data sharing between all three entities, which improves local health assessments and makes it easier to connect people in need with public health programs.
