The Health Care Workforce Committee was established in 2010 by House Bill 2009, Section 7 (3)(a) and reports directly to the Oregon Health Policy Board.
The Health Care Workforce Committee is chartered to coordinate efforts to recruit and educate health care professionals and retain a quality workforce. This work is necessary if Oregon is to meet the demand created by the expansion in health care coverage, system transformation and an increasingly diverse population.
The Committee advises the Oregon Health Policy Board on the healthcare workforce and develops recommendations and action plans for implementing the necessary changes to train, recruit and retain a dynamic health care work force scaled to meet the needs of new systems of care. The Health Care Workforce Committee receives senior-level staff support from the Oregon Healthcare Workforce Institute, as well as from the Office for Health Policy and Research.
In 2014, the Committee researched and developed recommendations on expanding primary care graduate medical education, on the array of state and federal provider incentives and on emerging trends in healthcare workforce categories. In 2015, the Committee will continue to focus on provider supports such as alternative payment methodologies and on effectively increasing the diversity, racial, ethnic and geographic, of Oregon’s healthcare workforce.
