The Center for Evidence-based Policy has a rich history of local, state, and national stakeholder engagement. The Center engages diverse stakeholders through collaborative processes that use data and evidence as levers to engineer approaches to address health policy challenges. We work to ensure that diverse and relevant perspectives are considered by engaging policy leaders, decisionmakers, and consumers. Through this approach, we achieve stakeholder buy-in and transparent decision-making, resulting in well informed, relevant, and actionable plans.
Patient Decision Support ToolsAs part of broader health care delivery transformation efforts in Oregon, the Oregon Health Authority wanted to ensure that evidence-based patient decision support tools (PDSTs) are available to Oregon's Coordinated Care Organizations. OHA believes that effective PDSTs can help support CCOs deliver patient-centered, clinically effective, and high value care. To assist the adoption of PDSTs, OHA contracted with the Center to create a toolkit for patients, providers, and policymakers. To inform development of the toolkit, the Center conducted a needs assessment on adoption, promotion, and implementation of PDSTs with CCO Medical Directors, and reviewed evidence on PDSTs. The Center also identified best practices to encourage use of PDSTs at the point of care. The toolkit is available at: http://www.decisionsupporttoolkit.com
Project TEAM is dedicated to helping tribes and local governments create, implement and manage judicially-led joint jurisdiction collaborations. Our goals are to improve justice outcomes in the community, use resources more efficiently and effectively through collaboration and partnership, and to help repair traditionally difficult relationships between tribes and US governmental bodies.
