Current Topics for Coverage Guidances


In Oregon’s Action Plan for Health, the Oregon Health Policy Board calls for the development of an initial set of 10 Oregon-based best practice guidelines and standards. The intent is to build upon the high standards of evidence evaluation used in the development of guidelines and health technology assessments by HERC and other trusted sources, creating a process that will allow evidence-based practices to be applied rapidly and uniformly across public and private settings to reduce unnecessary care and drive down costs.
