About Us

Administered by the state Department of Health, the Healthier Washington Collaboration Portal (WA Portal) is designed to accelerate collaboration and resource-sharing between Washington State public health, social service organizations, and community-based organizations as an online health and wellness learning community.

The Collaboration Portal was built by Washington health care providers, educators, web developers, public health, and community-based professionals – all working together to create health and wellness solutions that can be used across the state.

WA Portal was originally designed as part of the Healthier Washington Practice Transformation initiative to support clinical and behavioral health practices, and community-based organizations across the nine accountable communities of health. It was built in a partnership between the University of Washington’s Department of Family Medicine Primary Care Innovation Lab and the state Department of Health with input from users statewide.

Land Acknowledgement

We at WA Portal would like to acknowledge that as content creators, editors, and users of this site we operate on the traditional homelands of  Indigenous People of Washington.  We wish to thank the sovereign tribal nations for their stewardship and care of this land since time immemorial. Their presence is invaluable to Washington’s culture, and we recognize their forced sacrifices in history. The past, present, and future presence of these tribes and their people are essential to public health and our mission to create a more equitable Washington.  This land acknowledgement is just one small step  towards allyship and our commitment.
