AllCare CCO, Health Share of Oregon, Umpqua Health Alliance
Bevin Hansell, the Oregon Health Authority’s first innovator agent, most recently worked as OHA’s deputy administrator for the Office of Client and Community Services and the Office of Healthy Kids. From 1993 through 2008, Bevin held positions with Washington State’s Health Care Authority, where she was most recently the director of purchasing, policy and appeals. Bevin has also served as Columbia United Provider’s director of health management, a managed health care organization serving Medicaid and Basic Health members in Clark County, Washington.
Bevin is the innovator agent for AllCare CCO, Health Share of Oregon and Umpqua Health Alliance. Since beginning this work more than a year ago, Bevin has enjoyed learning about the complexities of the health care systems that support rural Southern Oregon. Being part of two different CCO teams that have helped bring myriad Southern Oregon health entities together and seeing the collaboration develop has been incredibly rewarding, she says.
One potentially transformative project Bevin is currently working on is Umpqua Health Alliance’s non-emergency medical transportation plan. Under this plan, CCOs work closely with non-profits and state, federal and county government agencies to develop a holistic transportation solution for Douglas County residents.
Bevin lives with her two devoted dachshunds and enjoys racing her car at various motor sports events. She attended Evergreen State College and the University of the Virgin Islands, where her studies focused on marine biology.
