Each year, thousands of Oregonians avoid or limit their healthcare due to rising costs, and an ever-increasing number of people are taking on medical debt. With healthcare workers in the lead, we are working on many fronts to meet the industry’s own framework of the Triple Aim: enhancing the patient experience, improving population health, and increasing the affordability of healthcare.
Learn more about how we are working with community leaders, our members, elected officials, and industry executives to help Oregon hospitals achieve the Triple Aim.
Enhancing the Patient Experience
Worker and patient safety: Worker and patient safety requires frontline engagement, culturally competent programs, appropriate staffing levels, and ongoing worker training.
Improving Population Health
Ensuring healthcare jobs are good jobs: Many hospitals and health systems pay workers so little that they qualify for charity care and public assistance programs.
Increasing Affordability of Care
Executive compensation and bonuses: Executive compensation should be evaluated and bonuses should be tied to quality standards and outcomes.
Reasonable rates: Hospital rates should be uniform and consistent across the board for individuals a as well as insurance companies.
