Workgroup Chair

John Duke, MBA Clinic Director, Outside In, Oregon Primary Care Association

Purpose Statement

Create recommendations to advance policy, funding, and other efforts to mitigate the negative effects of social determinants of the health of Oregonians.

Policy Statement

CCO Oregon acknowledges that there is a relationship between interventions addressing social determinants of health and an individual's quality of life, health outcomes and the cost of care. We encourage the Oregon Health Authority to request individual CCOs submit a transformation plan, timeline, and accountability measures focused on the integration of social determinants of health to further health transformation in Oregon.
