Health Care Workforce Committee


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 coordinates 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, and realize the promise of the Triple Aim.

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 Committee receives senior-level staff support from the Health Policy and Analytics within OHA.
