Annual Performance Measures

The 2003 Oregon Legislative Assembly passed House Bill 3653, creating the Oregon Health Policy Commission (OHPC) to develop and oversee health policy and planning for the state. The Commission identified and analyzed significant health care issues affecting the state and made policy recommendations to the Governor, the Oregon State Legislature and the state Office for Oregon Health Policy and Research (OHPR). Additionally, the Commission partnered with health care experts and stakeholders around the state to develop projects to ensure access to essential health care and support services, increase health care quality and improve health outcomes for individuals and society, controll costs, and encourage healthy lifestyles. 
The Commission, comprised of ten voting members appointed by the Governor, represented all of the state’s congressional districts and bring a rich variety of health policy and health care experience. Four legislators (one representing each legislative caucus) served as non-voting advisory members to the Commission.
