Health Professionals' Services Program - Administered by DHS, Addictions and Mental Health Division
History and Background
The Health Professionals’ Services Program (HPSP) was established in 2010 as a consolidated statewide program to assist health care providers struggling with substance use or mental health disorders, so they may continue to safely serve the people of Oregon. 

The HPSP monitors health care providers with the goal being rehabilitation. HPSP has four participating health Boards: The Oregon Board of Dentistry, the Oregon State Board of Nursing, the state of Oregon Board of Pharmacy, and the Oregon Medical Board (The Boards).
 
The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) has administered the program since it was established. In 2016, House Bill 4016 authorized the Boards to establish or contract for program services. The Boards and OHA have been working collaboratively to issue a new contract for program operations. To that end, the Boards established a Work Group to produce a Request for Proposals (RFP). The Work Group meetings were held monthly at the Oregon Medical Board and were open to the public.
 
The RFP resulted in the selection of a vendor for the HPSP program operations. Reliant Behavioral Health (RBH) has been awarded the contract to operate the HPSP, effective July 1, 2017. RBH has held the HPSP contract for the past seven years and will continue to do so with diligence.  The Boards, OHA, and RBH are committed to ensuring program participants experience a smooth transition during the change in administration. Licensees enrolled in the Program will continue to receive services without interruption.
 
Current participants of the HPSP may contact RBH with any questions they may have by visiting https://www.rbhmonitoring.com/. For media and other inquiries please contact the Boards.
