Access to Healthcare
We strive to provide for better overall health outcomes for Oregon Health Plan members in Curry County and all Curry County residents, by addressing issues associated with barriers to care, including gaps in care for medical and dental health.
WHO WE ARE
Our Workgroup includes representatives from both Advanced Health and AllCare Health Coordinated Care Organizations, a Community Health Worker with the Brookings-Harbor Homeless Task Force, a leader at Coast Community Health, a Public Health administrator, a nurse and veteran, a member of the Oregon Health Plan, representatives from Curry Community Health and Curry Health Network, a member of Curry Health Foundation, a Nurse Manager of the Brookings VA, and a Self Sufficiency Program coordinator. Collectively, we are striving to ensure equitable access to needed services and recruit and retain providers in Curry County.
Some of the activities we are involved in are supporting the COVID 19 Vaccine Rollout in Curry County, and seeking Brookings VA Clinics’ involvement in CHIP planning efforts.
We have plans to develop supportive efforts for providers, such as trauma informed care and suicide prevention trainings, and to develop better communication between Oregon Health Plan’s “Coordinated Care Organizations” (CCOs), providers, and members.
We are passionate about the present and future of healthcare for all Curry County residents and about removing barriers to care.
