Medicaid and non-Medicaid providers

Patient-centered primary care homes

Patient-centered primary care homes
Patient-centered primary care is a team-based model of care at the practice level. The focus is on wellness, prevention and coordination of care. It's a key part of Oregon's health system transformation efforts that put forward a vision for better health, better care and lower costs for all Oregonians.


Administrative simplification

Administrative simplification
Reducing and simplifying unnecessary administrative work is an important part of building a health care ystem that yields lower costs and better health outcomes. Over the next few years, newly created standards for all Oregon health care insurance plans — public and private — are being applied. The Oregon Companion Guide details the requirements.

The Administrative Simplification Work Group led Oregon's efforts to streamline.

Medicaid providers

Answers for patients

  1. My patients are asking about electronic health records
    Electronic records have the ability to keep a secure record of a patient's complete health picture, serving as a reminder when they're due for a checkup, what medications they take and what medical test they've already had. This can help avoid repeating tests unnecessarily and help us quickly find relevant information about overall patient care.


  2. My patients want information about Patient-Centered Primary Care Homes
    Primary care homes are clinics that are recognized for their commitment to patient-centered care. Recognized clinics better-coordinate care to help patients get the services they need, when they need them.
