Yesterday I shared OHSU’s reaction to this major news headline:
Today, OHSU was proud to join Governor Kitzhaber, legislators, health systems and others to discuss the achievement and answer questions from the press.
A few comments from OHSU President Dr. Joe Robertson in this Portland Business Journal article:
“This is a seminal plan: Oregon was the birthplace of health reform in the mid-1980s,” said Dr. Joe Robertson, OHSU’s president. “Now, we’ll shape the next iteration of health care.”
Robertson explained CCOs as well as anyone I’ve ever heard. As providers work together on treatment plans, “It changes the relationship between them from a vendor relationship to a partnership,” he said.
