How We Do It

We engage leaders from education, transportation, insurance, hospice, and government to talk about health.

We listen to Medicaid members. We close the gap between patients and health care decision-makers.

We invest in projects that affect the health of Central Oregonians.

We publish data for our community members to use when deciding how best to improve their health.

RHIP Workgroups

Regional Health Improvement Plan (RHIP) workgroups are groups of community members and subject-matter experts. We work together to achieve the future state measures in the current RHIP. Each workgroup can fund projects to achieve their four-year goals.

Regional Assessments

Every four years we research, write, and publish a Regional Health Assessment. It contains the most current data on our region’s health. It includes population data, disease prevalence, housing availability, and much more.

Pain Standards Task Force

This group seeks to lower the impact of the opioid crisis. Since 2015 they have offered free pain and opioid trainings to doctors, awarded free life-saving Naloxone to agencies, and helped write pain treatment guidelines. Visit copainguide.org to learn more.

Quality Incentive Measures

We bring together clinics and other partners to work on the Quality Incentive Measures from the Oregon Health Authority. These Measures are meant to ensure high quality health care for patients with Medicaid/Oregon Health Plan. Incentives can be earned by clinics and hospital if their care exceeds the State’s goals.
