How Can Health Care Change and Housing Work Together? – May 20
This panel discussion and Q&A with Health Share of Oregon – a tri-county area Coordinated Care Organization – will include Central City Concern’s Executive Director and Health Share Board Member Ed Blackburn, Health Share’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. David Labby, and Community Health Strategies Project Director Sandra Clark.
This forum is a unique opportunity for housing providers and interested community members to learn about a key aspect of the health care transformation:
- Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs) 101: what are they, who are they serving, what is the opportunity?
- Hear about an assessment project at Oregon ON member housing sites looking at site-specific solutions to improve residents’ health
- Learn about the way health providers are thinking outside the doctor’s office, including going to where people live
- Bring your questions, talk to Health Share staff, get connected
