Changes ahead for the OAFP.     
After working for the OAFP for 27 wonderful years, I have decided to retire in September.  It is more difficult than I thought to retire from a job I love!
Thank you for the opportunity to work with all of you, the heart and soul of medicine today!

There are many recent developments in our campaign to improve the environment for primary care, including payment reform, technical assistance and developing common metrics.

Here is an article about SB 934 passed this legislative session. The bill implements the recommendations from the Primary Care Payment Reform Collaborative and requires all commercial insurers, CCOs, and OEBB and PEBB to invest 12% of their total medical expenditure in primary care infrastructure by the year 2023.  These payments must extend to all PCPCH clinics.

Here is a comprehensive study by PSU showing that the PCPCH program saved $240 million over the past 3 years, with savings increasing every year.

Health is Primary!  Check out the campaign to champion family physicians at the forefront of health reform.  This effort joins forces with employers, policymakers, community leaders and health advocates to build a primary care system that reflects the values of family medicine, puts patients at the center of their care, and improves the health of all Americans.


 

 The OAFP welcomes all physicians, members and patients of every color, language, ethnicity, origin, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender expression, marital status, and life situation.  Our intention is to provide excellent care to all citizens of Oregon.  We understand that members of the above listed communities have unique health care challenges and to this end we support ongoing education that directly addresses of health related issues of each of these communities.
