Incentive metrics, strategies to address social determinants of health
The Oregon Foundation for Reproductive Health (OFRH) is a nonprofit advocacy organization in Portland, Oregon. We believe that all people should have the power and resources to make healthy decisions about their bodies, sexuality and reproduction for themselves and their families without fear of discrimination, exclusion or harm. We are dedicated to improving access to comprehensive reproductive health care, such as preventing unintended pregnancy and planning healthy families. We are committed to advancing reproductive rights and advocating for reproductive health equity in all Oregon communities.
OFRH developed the One Key Question® initiative, encouraging health care providers to routinely screen women of reproductive age about their pregnancy intention and provide essential reproductive health services depending on their needs. By asking, “Would you like to become pregnant in the next year?”, health care providers can use a patient-centered screening to identify the needs for proactive contraception and/or preconception care. The OKQ algorithm includes four patient response categories of "yes," "okay either way," "unsure" and "no."
Hannah Rosenau is the program director for OFRH and has worked in the nonprofit sector for women’s health and reproductive rights advocacy for over 10 years, including as a residential counselor for pregnant and parenting teens at a Planned Parenthood clinic, and currently as board member and hotline advocate with the Network for Reproductive Options - the local abortion fund. She now works with OFRH on the One Key Question® campaign, contraception access programs and reproductive health policy in health care reform.
